Founded over 20 years ago, Allen Associates has become Oxfordshire’s leading independent recruitment agency through upholding and living their values of Integrity, Respect, Professionalism and Commitment to Exceptional Service.
As a rapidly growing business, Allen Associates required a highly proactive and agile IT service to meet the changing needs of the company. Whilst their systems were adequate, they were in need of advanced specifications and growth capacity.
Data backups are key, and they needed a system in place that was automated and reliable to ensure the protection of their integral company database. Staff were diligently changing backup drives every day – but the backup systems weren’t delivering and the company hadn’t had a successful data backup for some time.
The first step of claireLOGIC’s approach was to gain a good understanding of the business and current technology in place. This strategic review was critical to identifying key issues and barriers to effective use of our IT.
From the assessment we identified key areas for improvement. We also found that some urgent changes were required – such as system permission changes and short-term backup before a more strategic decision could be made around backup and recovery.
“We really don’t sing your praises enough. I trust the team at claireLOGIC – they have delivered over and above our expectations. Working with claireLOGIC has saved us a lot of time – we just let the experts get on so we can focus on providing the high levels of service our clients expect. Working with claireLOGIC has shifted the way we think about IT – in a good way!”
