The Challenge

Specialist Aviation Limited comprises multiple companies operating from geographically dispersed sites.

A solution was required to enable the use of a newly appointed ERP system across all locations and at the same time consolidate the different businesses IT networks into one common system.

The Solution

Softwerx built a hybrid IT environment leveraging private cloud for bespoke applications, Microsoft Office 365 for email and commoditised services and a small local server in each building providing security and storage for large CAD data files.

A hosted backup service captures all data from the systems and stores it securely multiple locations outside of the private cloud and Microsoft datacentres.

The Outcome

The project brought the IT systems from each business into a single environment simplifying management and standardising the user experience for everyone. Support for smartphones, tablets and remote working has enabled more flexible ways of working and with the whole solution supported by the Softwerx helpdesk there is a central point of contact for all IT matters.

In a single move Specialist Aviation Limited now has an IT solution that can scale and adapt as existing companies in the group grow and new ventures are established.

In selecting an IT Partner, we needed an organisation that was professional, qualified and flexible. Softwerx had a proven track-record in IT infrastructure design and deployment, underpinned by a host of industry-standard quality accreditations.
