Enhancing the health and well-being of IT systems in the care industry

Concorde have recently undertaken a project with Care Plus Group,  the main provider of adult community health and social care services in North East Lincolnshire, to supply and install a range of products and services that will enhance their IT systems. 

The objective was to build a resilient IT infrastructure which would deliver services to the internal staff at Care Plus Group, who approached Concorde earlier this year to discuss the technology available to them and guidance on how to best implement it. 

Whilst a basic infrastructure existed within the social business, IT Manager and design lead Darren Mckay, understood the importance of system availability and wanted to construct an infrastructure from the ground up that would enable Care Plus to successfully run their core applications. To this end, the new infrastructure needed to be robust, flexible, reliable and resilient. System availability was of paramount importance.

After a number of technology presentations Concorde, who provide cost effective and innovative IT solutions to businesses across the country, were asked to undertake product supply, consultancy and assist with implementation.

Darren Mckay stated “Concorde IT were the perfect partner for assisting with the delivery of my design. Their knowledge of current hardware and software complimented the design aspirations and assisted with the delivery of our fully resilient infrastructure, with zero downtime”

As a value added reseller, Concorde customers benefit from a wealth of expertise and knowledge across a wide range of products so Care Plus Group chose a number of different vendors in order to meet their needs. From Dell to Microsoft and HP, NetApp and VMware to VSphere and Veeam , APC to Kaspersky, Care Plus Group took advantage of the many products offered by Concorde.

Mike Pencavel, North West Sales Manager, commented “We’re really pleased with the outcome of the project. We’ve worked hand in hand with Care Plus Group to build the infrastructure across two data centres, providing them with not only a solution but an understanding of the technology which will enable them to successfully deliver their services to their staff and clients. Additionally, we will continue to work with the Care Plus Group on other technologies to enhance this service including Two Factor Authentication, Wireless networking and UTM Firewalling.”
