Case Study : Active Group

The Active Group provides professional, independent compliance, HR and company secretarial outsourcing with offices in Guernsey, Jersey, Malta, Isle of Man and Cyprus.  

Overview

Active have no IT staff and wanted to fully outsource their IT to NGIT.  Furthermore they wanted no server infrastructure on site at their office, instead preferring a hosted system.  As a growing business they wanted a flexible system that could rapidly grow with them and as many of their staff work on client sites or in other jurisdictions, these staff needed to access their systems remotely as if they were in the office.

  • All inclusive monthly fee to include backend IT systems, 24 x 7 monitoring, ongoing maintenance, healthchecks, patching and updates.
  • Monthly fee to include rental of PCs, laptops and screens and onsite IT support
  • Document & email management for central and reliable capture of all correspondence and documents
  • Integrate CRM and line of business software to manage the business

 

Our Approach

  • Setup a dedicated private cloud system for Active in local datacentre with private fibre connection to site
  • Central Guernsey based systems, with reliable and fast remote access from Jersey, Malta, Isle of Man and Cyprus offices and while travelling
  • Hosted on a robust, secure and high performance system to support Active
  • Provide highest performance and resilience with hosted virtualised systems and SANs on enterprise grade infrastructure
  • Replication to disaster recovery site for business continuity
  • Onsite support from our helpdesk engineers
  • All for a fixed price monthly fee

Technologies

Being consultants to the finance industry means our staff frequently work remotely from clients' offices.

Using Office Anywhere through NGIT's system enables them to have full access at their fingertips and work as if sitting at their own desks. 

This allows us to maintain high levels of productivity, and to efficiently support our clients.
