Poupart case study

Poupart Limited is a leading supplier of quality fruit to UK and European supermarkets. Poupart is one of the UK’s oldest fresh produce companies, with origins tracing back to the 1850s.

The challenge

  • Poupart's growth and expansion was stressing their internally ran WAN network
  • IT in place was no longer meeting dynamic business requirements
  • The internal server rooms in head office were vulnerable to flood and power outages
  • Had a single point of failure with everything terminating in head office
  • Internal IT resource was being taken up with either fire-fighting or system house-keeping instead of value-added activity
  • Expanding data volumes causing its existing tape-based system to be costly and unwieldy to manage effectively

The solution

  • Through colocation services Poupart are able to maintain control over its systems whilst benefiting from a secure data centre environment and supported by Redcentric's hands and eyes team
  • Managed WAN service freeing up internal resources time
  • Managed backup service consolidates and stores all the data from the nine sites
  • Eliminated single point of failure by moving to a highly redundant environment with Cloud data backup

Why Redcentric

  • Redcentric demonstrated that they were more of an IT partner rather than just an IT provider
  • Greater cost predictability
