Conack Construction Ltd. is leading building and civil engineering company based in Limerick. Their size and scope requires them to also have regional offices in Cork, Galway and Dublin. FutureRange have been collaborating with them since 2016. In this time, Conack Construction have grown rapidly, from an organisation of 35 employees, to one that now employes 200 across the brand.
Our experts started with an extensive IT infrastructure audit, which resulted in some items needing to be addressed immediately. In line with company targets and objectives, our intended result was to support the company through a growth spurt that was challenging as a clear path for growth was yet to be fully teased out.
We wanted to offer our partners a proposal that would give them an IT infrastructure that was easy for them to maintain. However, it needed to also be agile enough to give them ability to quickly expand. To achieve this, we adopted popular and proven products from industry leaders such as Microsoft, HP, SonicWALL, ESET and Veeam.
Having a long and successful relationship with these fantastic technologies allowed us to set up according to industry best-practice using highly trained and extensively certified engineers in these products. Most importantly, we ensured to document and standardise the work that we carried out.
Finally, all laptops are encrypted and standardised procedures for onboarding of staff were implemented. All IT issue are logged using a centralised ticket management system. All devices are managed using Atera remote management client. And Microsoft Teams is now used for meetings between site managers.
Of course, to ensure the ongoing success of our solution, our experts continued to carry out test restores of the servers on a regular basis.
Since 2016, FutureRange have shown our flexibility and dedication to helping Conack Construction expand exponentially. By working together, we have been able to meet tight deadlines for their acquisition and roll out their IT equipment and services to all staff members.
Working closing with Future Range has allowed us to be proactive in our approach to the growth and development of the company. Under the watchful eye of our IT experts, we are secure in the knowledge that we have the best, up to date and most efficient advice to hand at all times.
Future Range are a pivotal part of our business continuity plan. Ensuring we can sustain further growth or overcome any downtime without major disruption is essential to a business like ours that succeeds on having up to date access to clients and design teams where necessary. Their commitment to Conack was evident when Covid-19 caused so much disruption, we were in a great position to have our staff move to meetings online through Teams/Zoom etc. Laptops/PC were made ready in a very short period of time for staff to work from home with Future Range at the end of the phone at moments notice where required.
Having Future Range manage our IT systems gives us peace of mind to allow the business to continue to grow in a controlled manner so the teams in our offices can concentrate on the business to hand.
