Adrian Harte, IT Manager, Kirby Group, outlines how ActionPoint have helped make them stronger, more efficient and more progressive:
A roadmap for progress
When you’re trusted to plan and deliver cutting edge solutions for Fortune 500 companies you need to be sure your IT will support you every step of the way. So technology is fundamental to what we do, it empowers everything in our business.
A few years ago we saw that to help drive our business and services forward we needed to take a giant step up in terms of our IT infrastructure, systems and support. We met with a variety of service providers and also had direct discussions with the likes of Dell and HP. ActionPoint’s passion, expertise, precision and capability stood out so we decided to task them with auditing our entire IT set-up and producing a roadmap for progress.
Progressive projects and full support
Several key projects were identified and together with the ActionPoint team we very successfully worked our way through those over the following months.
Today ActionPoint continue to help steer our IT planning and decision making, they provide us with high level IT support and they monitor our entire IT set-up 24/7 and service and upgrade our IT infrastructure hardware and software as needed.
Right for Kirby
We really like how ActionPoint operate. No matter the challenge they take a step back, have a good look, carefully consider, come up with a smart, clear plan and then execute with a military like precision. Their focus is always on what is exactly right for Kirby, as opposed to what might yield a bigger sale for ActionPoint. So they are great to collaborate with and we trust them implicitly.
Stronger, more efficient and more progressive
ActionPoint have made a significant contribution to our business, we are stronger, more efficient and more progressive thanks to their commitment, expertise and team. They have played a significant part in helping us get to where we are today.
