How did Mercury IT help Xtreme Freight Forwarding to move from onsite server infrastructure to a private Cloud solution?
Based in Wellington Xtreme is a specialist freight forwarding company focused on the demands of the film and entertainment industries. Their international clients need a company who can handle anything from the movement of bulky but delicate equipment to courier delivery of small rush items.
Xtreme contacted Mercury when they needed to upgrade their on-site IT infrastructure. We completed a technical audit of their systems and talked with key staff about business requirements and future needs. We recommended that Xtreme move to our Cloud services platform.
Dirk Eykel of Xtreme had the following to say: “Looking at the numbers this option made sense for us. Many of our guys are out of the office and they can access the system no matter where they are.”
Mercury provides the following services:
- Help desk for any of issues people have
- On-site support for when needed
- All email and Microsoft Office tools
- File storage
- Data backup and recovery
With a Managed Service programme Xtreme pays a set fee for the Cloud services and user support. Dirk says: “We have a mix of gear, including Mac’s, PC’s and mobile devices. They are all managed by Mercury and that keeps things simple for us.”
Dirk continued: “Mercury is easy to deal with. We recently had an office move and Mercury were there to make sure that the IT changeover happened smoothly.”
