With a significant growth in business and with eleven geographically dispersed sites in four countries, Height for Hire needed an efficient and cost-effective technology solution to orchestrate its information flow between offices, manage application deployment and maintain mobile users.
A Citrix XenServer was installed in head office which connects users at eleven remote sites. Trilogy installed firewalls at all remote sites with a new consolidated firewall at head office. The solution virtualizes Height for Hire’s existing infrastructure and consolidates the ERP system, files and email accounts, Adobe and internet access. Remote users and mobile workers can now log on securely. This solution also acts as a fail-over should any links go down enabling users to log in over the Citrix access gateway. Trilogy’s managed service solution remotely manages both the head office and remote site infrastructure.
Benefits include efficient and centralised management, instant web-enablement of existing applications and flexible access to applications on demand. User files are located on Height for Hire’s central servers in Ashbourne. Centralised management and support reduces the requirement for administrators to travel to other locations. Staff can now access applications from any location, on any device.
