Case Study


Versatile Bathrooms & Interiors

With all of their business services running through a 3-year-old server, having such a large workload running through one machine posed considerable risk to the business. In the event of this on site server coming off-line, a back-up solution would not be as reliable as a cloud alternative and it would take considerable time to restore services to get the business back on-line.  Furthermore, access to Versatile’s Virtual Private Network (VPN) was limited and compounded by poor broadband connectivity.

INNOVATE designed and implemented a suite of solutions that both overcame their current IT limitations and also realised previous technology investments, specifically:

  • Realised original server investment and improved Backup solution including reduced RPO.  
  • Reduced the pressure on the 3 year old server by removing Exchange function to Office 365 cloud. The risk of hosting email on premise was removed by setting up Office 365 email in the cloud.
  • Upgraded to 25MB fibre broadband line with 24/7 monitoring. 
  • Provided Enterprise grade security from cyber attack with Cisco Meraki Firewall, an upgraded firewall to maximise the new upgraded speed and this was provided as INNOVATE’s secure connect solution.

Following a consultation and subsequent implementation with INNOVATE, Versatile now have a more resilient platform that is scalable as their business grows.
