Requirements & Solution:
Ready Steady Store is a long standing customer having initially been introduced in 2007 by an IT Consultant. The initial requirement was for the supply, hosting and importantly on-going management of a Citrix Server that would be accessed by the Head Office to offer a centralised file store in addition to running the Sage Accounting Software.
Recognising the benefits of using hosted applications further contracts were awarded in 2009 for the use of mail services (provided as a Cloud application) and a further server to operate the SpaceManager application which is the main software that runs the business i.e. says which units are rented by which clients, charges them etc.
The level of service and support offered over the years has now resulted in all Internet connectivity for the Stores and Head Office being provided and managed by amatis Networks.
