One of our clients provide real-time GPS tracking for fleet vehicles, heavy machinery, and more. Their custom-built tracking system relies on technology working 100% of the time, 24/7, so locations can be accessed at any time.
With a growing customer base, more GPS units in the field, and ever-increasing website traffic, activIT systems were engaged to review the existing environment & design a custom solution for this business which was reliable and would allow for growth. We recommended placing critical functions in our activCloud platform, with virtual servers to replace their ageing on-site equipment and regular data backups to several locations.
The project required a lot of planning and preparation to achieve a downtime of under five hours. New PCs were deployed first, the existing server infrastructure was decommissioned, and data was migrated to the new virtual server platform after-hours, resulting in a smooth transition to the new system and no major issues.
The outcomes for this client have been:
- Plenty of room for growth with activCloud’s flexibility and freedom.
- Less operational risk, due to the reliable nature of activCloud.
- Faster responses for customers when accessing the website and tracking system.
Although the project is complete, activIT systems continue to provide ongoing services to this business. They rely on us to provide maintenance, management, and support services to their server infrastructure, and continued consultation to use the IT behind their unique GPS tracking systems as a competitive advantage.
