We’re pleased to announce that we have won the business of the UK’s leading heavy building materials producer – Tarmac Building Products.
In a three year deal, Axon has designed and deployed a complete new infrastructure for Tarmac and will now provide technical support for 600 users across 60 sites around the UK.
Using our specialism as a Microsoft cloud computing partner, we have provided Tarmac with a hybrid cloud solution incorporating Microsoft Office 365 – the latest cloud computing offering from Microsoft – and Axon data centre services utilising virtualisation technologies, which has reduced the Tarmac server estate by 50%. We also provided a full desktop refresh, Windows smartphones and Windows Intune asset management.
We will now provide ongoing technical helpdesk and end user support for Tarmac which will benefit from increased flexibility, a reduction in the cost of ownership and improved business continuity as a result of the new solution.
Mark Skidmore, IT Infrastructure Manager for Tarmac Building Products commented: “With sites across the UK we needed an up-to-date, reliable and robust solution that would enable all employees to communicate and share data efficiently wherever they were. We’re pleased with both the solution and service provided by Axon and look forward to working with the team over the coming years.”
The past 12 months has seen a significant increase in the number of Axon’s customers moving to cloud solutions as businesses opt for a more flexible and scalable approach to IT. In turn, we have experienced significant growth since becoming a cloud computing specialist in 2011 and we’re delighted to welcome Tarmac Building Products on board.
