Client Issue

Sitec IT has worked with Clarke Gammon Wellers (independent estate agents) for over six years providing IT support and new computer equipment for their six locations in Surrey and Hampshire.

Early on during the relationship CGW needed to upgrade the main file server at their head office to make the management of their considerable portfolio and different locations more effective, efficient and easier for the whole team. All their office locations across the region needed to be able to access the upgraded server.

The Solution

After discussions with the team to identify all the requirements, Sitec worked with the business to implement the Vebra Live Business Solution to be housed at the head office in Haslemere. They also provided integration services for head office and their other offices in Liphook, Shere, Godalming and Guildford.

The project was implemented over the course of a week and local user testing was carried out to ensure that the system worked well even under pressure and that the end users could reliably and effectively manage their data from any of the locations. Sitec also worked with the implementation team at Vebra to ensure each of the different locations could effectively manage their data locally even if there was a break in the internet connection.

Services Provided

  • Pre and post project planning and support
  • Supply of business class hardware to enable effective VPN solution
  • Setup and installation of site-to-site VPNs for five locations
  • Supplier liaison and technical management

Sitec carried out all the research needed in terms of identifying the right solution and equipment needed as well as carrying out the implementation and subsequent tests. A fast and effective solution was essential for CGW to maintain and improve their market position.

Project Feedback

The implementation was delivered on-time, on budget and to the client’s complete satisfaction. Sitec IT now manage the network and have subsequently added new locations to the secure private network. Sitec continues to ensure upgrades are implemented effectively.
