Brintons Carpets selects C24 as their strategic hosting partner

Birmingham, West Midlands, 28th October 2014 – Brintons Carpets Ltd are the world’s leading manufacturer of high-quality woven carpets and have selected C24 to be their strategic hosting partner for the global delivery of their business critical applications. The solutions will see C24 deliver Epicor ERP systems, Microsoft Exchange and a variety of other applications from their tier IV datacentre.

Like many other growing enterprises, Brintons were reaching a turning point in their business and IT needed to transform to cope with new business demands. An increasingly complex IT environment was making it difficult to manage a large technology infrastructure with the same resources, and Brintons recognised that in order to keep providing such high levels of service to their customers, they would need to re-evaluate their existing IT platforms to ensure they still fulfilled the needs of the business. Brintons also identified the importance of working with a true partner; as technology is so central to the services that Brintons delivers globally, they needed a strategic hosting partner that could offer flexibility and scalability for their operations.

C24 partnered closely with Brintons application providers to deliver a holistic and simple to manage solution that would help solve some of the challenges faced by an evolving business. C24 recognised that the smooth delivery of the enterprise hosting solution to Brintons was an ability to partner seamlessly with Brintons’ own IT team and third party providers involved in the overall solution.

Sarah Goode, IT Manager at Brintons Carpets, commented, “As a mid-market business, finding a hosting partner with the right skills who have an understanding of both the applications and the supporting infrastructure wasn’t easy; C24 showed a true understanding of both areas but just as importantly, they are willing to work closely with us to deliver our desired business outcomes.”

David Ricketts, Head of Marketing at C24, commented, “Brintons Carpets is one of the UK’s most recognisable brands, with a history of delivering the very best quality for organisations across the globe. For us at C24, the opportunity to work with them; delivering their critical applications to sites across the world, specifically across the UK, Europe, Asia, USA and Australia, highlights how far we have come as a hosting business. The team are really looking forward to delivering on their high expectations over the coming three years.”
