Anthony Pepe Estate Agents are our focus this month. We started supporting them back in 2011 when Charlie the MD, found us through our social media! Upon asking for recommendations on Twitter people soon started pointing him in our direction and the rest is history. Based in London they have 3 branches with another 2 opening in the next year.
Anthony Pepe Estate Agents were using an end of life server for their sales and lettings software and it was starting to fail and let them down impacting on their day to day work. Their current IT support was a one-man band and was hard to get hold of sometimes which was frustrating them especially when their server went down. They also had local email on the server so their communications to customers and sales were starting to suffer.
The cost to replace the server would be around 4-5k plus ongoing support costs. Anthony Pepe had 2 branches at the time, with plans to open more as they grew and developed.
Even back then we could see the potential of cloud computing and its benefits, and we were huge advocates of it. We put a plan into place which would enable Anthony Pepe to operate across multiple branches with ease whilst massively reducing upfront and ongoing IT support costs.
We did this in 3 simple stages:
• Moved their emails off the server and onto a Hosted Exchange platform
• Migrated the in-house sales and lettings software to a web based provider
• Used a cloud based product for file sharing/storage
The solutions we put in place provided Anthony Pepe Estate Agents with a reliable, robust and scalable system which would allow their infrastructure to grow as their company grows.
“Since 2011, The IT Guy have supported us and all our branches. They have helped us introduce modern technology and cloud solutions to the business, which have enabled us to grow and open new branches with ease. They are always on the end of the phone if we need them and quick to respond. We look forward to continue working with The IT guy in the future, and with their help, expand and grow even further.”
