CASE STUDY:

SCI HEALTH AND SAFETY

SCI Health & Safety are an Essex based specialist consultancy company and experts in all areas of modern health & safety in industry. SCI occupy an office in Tilbury, Essex overlooking the River Thames who sought urgent assistance of 2120 Networks in 2017 when they faced a potentially disastrous situation with their IT equipment.   

ACTION

During a critical time in their busiest period; SCI were left unable to access some of their files. A corruption on a NAS drive meant critical data was unreachable, and as a start-up business this could have spelled disaster, however fortunately their data was backed up and recoverable. 

SCI needed a reliable means of data storage and access that could meet their needs, and looking ahead to the future with a planned expansion of their Food Safety sector; SCI’s Managing Director Sid McCallaghan decided to overhaul the IT setup of the business, with one caveat – it had to be up and running within a matter of days! 
 

OUTCOME

2120 Networks assisted SCI setup a onsite Windows 2016 Server with off-site backup and replication of their critical business files – over one weekend! 

We implemented VPN remote access system for SCI’s roaming consultants to extend their reach to files and network resources when working out of the office. In the weeks following the refresh of their office PCs, we installed a new network, which included the installation of a managed POE Switch, rollout of Microsoft Office 2016 and Symantec Endpoint Business Security. 
 

THE FUTURE

Since October 2017, 2120 Networks have assisted SCI in expanding their business into a larger office with increased number of staff. 

We provided consultancy to SCI in planning their approach to implementing a software solution to automate the process of on-site Health & Safety audits. SCI’s consultants visit customer premises and are able to remotely collect information taking into account a number of key metrics that compile a formal risk assessment. 

As of 2020 we provide SCI with ad-hoc IT support and maintain their System Stability, Data Backup and Cyber Security protection.
