Fleet Components are an independent motor factor, selling specialised truck and trailer components, consumables and engineering services and solutions, with 6 depots located in the South West.

When they moved their out sourced IT support to Timewade in 2016, they described their then IT as unstable, slow, out of date and unreliable. Improvements to their infrastructure were much needed to meet the growing demands of the business.

Following our Take on Process and full IT Systems Review, our Technical Consultant identified and recommended some specific improvement areas which were then planned and budgeted into their IT Roadmap.
During the first 12-18 months a number of improvement projects were approved to enhance performance across the business, these projects included:

Replacing aging servers with resilient hardware
Migrating their email system to Office 365
Installation of a Disaster recovery solution across the whole business
Installation of fail-over broadband connections to all branch offices
Re-cabling of the buildings to support future communications upgrades
Implementation of a new VoIP hosted telephone system, which has improved communications and performance and is more cost effective.

James Tout of Fleet Components agrees that their infrastructure across all depots is now reliable, secure and has the required speed to cope with the demands of the business.
James believes that whilst they have a good working relationship with all Timewade staff, the specific service areas that they most benefit from is through having a dedicated Technical consultant who is both passionate and reliable. In addition the planning through the IT Roadmap, which they believe is a key advantage to their business and enables them to plan for necessary improvements, rather than react to failure and problems.

Fleet Components would recommend Timewade IT Manager as service if you are looking for ‘’stress free IT’’.

‘’Timewade feel like an extension of our own team and have an idea of what we want and are able to interpret what we need’’.

James adds ‘’Whilst projects have encountered some problems along the way, Timewade always go above and beyond, to make these projects as stress free as possible and have never let us down with what they say they can offer’’.
