“Keep IT Local” and Receive a £50 Amazon Voucher!

keep-IT-localOur “Keep IT Local” campaign starts in July, we think local business is very important for everyone and believe working with local companies provides a greater upstanding on how your business really works.

We try where ever possible to match the big corporate’s deals. We are however a small business and we’ve never claimed to be a big fish, so we can deal with your requests on a much more personal level.

For whole of July all new clients purchasing one of our ‘Time Bank’ Support packages will also receive a £50 Amazon voucher.  Click here to enquire.

Network Cabinet Rewire Project

Network cabinets can become messy over time, so we arranged to install an additional network cabinet for future growth, and then rewire the old cabinet so that one cabinet contained all network equipment and the other cabinet the servers.

New Server Room Network Cabinet Install

Two new cabinets installed, one containing all the CAT5E cabling and the other containing all the main servers and network devices.

Domino Sales Forecasting

Had a full day today customising and tweaking a client Sales Forecasting Notes Database.

Domino 8.5.3 doing its job and showing where the “old” code isn’t as efficient as it could be.

After a little lotus script change the db is now performing at triple the speed! More importantly, external users working via VPN can process their forecasts without having to go and make a cup of tea between mouse clicks!

Server Deployment – Retail

Client: Retail Industry
Issue: Development Server Required – Immediately!

Next Step IT were commissioned to identify the end clients needs and propose a server solution for a bespoke development environment. The timescales were short and needed to be achieved.

We sourced from our trusted suppliers a New HP Proliant Rack Server which offered a scalable solution to the client, which was delivered ‘next day’ before 10:30am.

The server was installed into the rack and built with Windows 2008 R2 64bit server code. All updates installed and security enabled with static IP’s as per the clients requirements and deployed ready for use before the end of the day.

A true 48 hour project that landed and was achieved.
