Case study detailing the merge of two businesses after relocating to the Midlands.
About Our Client - Completing custom engraving and etching since 2000. Our customer is a specialist manufacturer with a diverse range of product options. We have supported their infrastructure since 2007.
Client Requirements - Relocation to the Midlands, whilst remaining operational. In addition, incorporate an already established business with their existing environment.
Our Solution - ABM planned and implemented a CAT5E network, terminated the cables, created a new server room, set up broadband and WAN connections prior to the move. To enhance the existing HP ProLiant server from Sussex, our technicians completed significant upgrades, commenced a data and mail merge from the other business's older hardware. All technology required was then packaged securely and transported up to the Midlands. Here it was installed and configured to the new network. The older existing equipment was reconfigured and merged into the new active directory servers. We were also responsible for configuring the new user accounts, domains, ERP solution, time attendance software and merging the two businesses onto one accounting platform.
The Outcome - ABM completed all work within the allocated time frame. We met all expectations and the customer still uses ABM's services despite their further location.
