Premier Choice Internet

PSFI Case Study

The Brief

PSFI were struggling with their current provider and IT infrastructure. They were working on a Citrix hosted cloud setup which was not able to offer the simple, easy to use, flexible IT infrastructure that they required as an organization. There were also suboptimal support response, SLA’s and the time to fix faults, within the hosted environment resulted in significant downtime for the company.

With staff members based all over the world, sometimes in places with poor or limited connectivity, PSFI were also keen to have a system that allowed them to work locally, with changes to documents and files syncing back to the main organization data sets when good, uninterrupted connectivity was available.

Peterhouse Corporate Finance Case Study

The Brief

Premier Choice Internet have a long-standing relationship with Peterhouse which started in 2012 with the supply of managed IT services.

Peterhouse approached us to discuss their business continuity plan. At the time their setup was an on-premise server with cloud data backup. Their existing plan would not have given them the flexibility to be back online within an acceptable amount of time (under 48 hours).

ALS Case Study

The Brief

ALS Civil Engineers were struggling with their local network being slow as they were using a Synology network storage device, which is intended for less users than ALS has. This caused a massive strain by causing slow loading times and crashing documents, if this carried on it could have eventually led to data loss and corruption.

Furthermore, the remote access setup with their Synology network prevents them from receiving a secure remote access to the local network.

Also, in terms of ALS’ backup system, they never received reports on whether the backups were a success or a failure as the restore function was never tested. In addition, the portable device did not have any encryption giving concerns around data leakage.

ALS used an email solution supplied by a mixture of AOL and NamesCo, both of these solutions are gradually being phased out of the industry and also have many flaws, such as no centralised email backup, security or ability to share mailboxes or folders.

ALS has grown significantly over the past 12 months and needed an improvement on their existing legacy Sage Job Costing software.
