IT Consultancy for Kent marine company
EAPL supports the highly skilled labour requirements of the marine industry and has recently extended its services to accommodate the industrial and construction sector.
EAPL operate in the marine and industrial sectors and are a long-term client of Akita.
Our relationship began when we were able to provide EAPL with IT consultancy relating to cloud computing. They had an existing, under-performing onsite server solution that was in desperate need of modernisation.
Akita’s IT consultants were able to review EAPL’s current setup, processes and requirements and devise a new technology solution that would be scalable to the company’s needs.
Our solution was to successfully migrate EAPL to our Akita’s own virtual infrastructure. This saw EAPL’s data transferred into Akita’s cloud environment, delivered by our data centres.
As a result of the migration, system performance and reliability were dramatically improved, with all users noticing a significant uplift in speed. The migration also eradicated the system-wide downtime and significantly improved the reliability of their setup.
The infrastructure and network improvements were underpinned by ongoing IT support and proactive maintenance visits. These site visits help to minimise the number of ongoing issues requiring IT support, as well as fostering a close working relationship and enabling our staff to develop a deeper understanding of our clients’ needs.
Our primary service for EAPL now focuses on providing fast and reliable telephone and remote IT support to all staff, regardless of their location or their time zone. However, our proactive IT support continues to help EAPL find new IT efficiencies and solutions for their setup.
