Before working with Ginko IT
The operations of Stroud Homes are highly dependent on efficient IT systems. They need to closely collaborate with clients, local councils, land developers and other service providers.
Initially, Stroud Homes were working with 2 other companies to sustain their IT services both directly and remotely. This framework did not yield the focus that they needed because they felt they were being taken advantage of, overcharged and underserviced.
Challenges faced by Stroud Homes
As a result of their inefficient IT systems, Stroud Homes were experiencing the following challenges:
- High operational costs
- Unreliable service: slow response to client concerns and requests of service providers
- Lack of knowledge of how their IT systems should work, and the results they should yield.
Working with Ginko IT
Stroud Homes were referred to Ginko IT through two of their Partners Databuild and Companion. Stroud Homes first decided to use Ginko IT for their data billing services. By implementing an effective data model, Ginko IT was able to simplify the billing process for Stroud Homes and identify data aspects that they weren’t receiving. Ginko IT was also able to provide an emergency response by upgrading the technology used by Stroud Homes. They implemented faster hardware solutions and took over the management of critical systems.
Because Stroud Homes are a franchisee, they had 6 separate businesses that needed to be managed at the same time.
The Outcome of Working with Ginko IT
Stroud homes were satisfied with the services offered by Ginko IT. They now enjoy a more stable IT environment, and can benefit from services that are focused on their business requirements. Ginko IT is able to respond to rapidly changing requirements, reduce costs and stabilise accounts.
Working with Ginko has allowed Stroud Homes to achieve the following milestones.
- Reduced hardware costs by 60% per annum
