Over the years, this charity has become increasingly aware of the importance of IT systems which run smoothly and reliably, growing ever more reliant on technology in its day-to-day business. Having worked with Utilize since 2003 and in addition to its increase in flexibility and control, this charity has been able to reduce its hardware spend and increase its green credentials.

Over the years, this charity has become increasingly aware of the importance of IT systems which run smoothly and reliably, growing ever more reliant on technology in its day-to-day business. Indeed, this has been the general trend across the charitable sector in recent years. All of the data is stored electronically, so being unable to access this would impact upon its ability to assist the needs of its customers. In short, system uptime is vital. With the central back office environment so heavily dependent upon IT – there is not a single department which could cope without its systems.
But the impact would not be limited to administrative staff at the charity’s headquarters. It also runs dozens upon dozens of care homes across the region, all accessing its network remotely, relying on these connections for information and communication.
When looking for a provider back in 2003, the charity knew it needed a company which could provide reliable proactive support for its care homes, but also advise on appropriate IT solutions to help facilitate its expansion.
