Infrastructure Updates and IT Solutions To Support Growth

Watch our video case study to see how we helped Thornbridge Brewery update their IT infrastructure and manage their with hardware and network support.

Thornbridge Brewery: Improved levels of IT Support and Reduce Response Times.

Thornbridge Brewery employs about 50 people in the Derbyshire town of Bakewell, from where it supplies a range of beers to supermarkets, six pubs it owns in the Sheffield area, and the 38 countries to which it exports. Being a world class brewer, it wanted an IT supplier of similar stature.

The Reason For Change

As well as work to the highest standard, the Thornbridge Brewery objective in finding the right IT supplier involved identifying a company with the correct cultural fit and they found it in HBP Systems. Our relationship with Thornbridge goes back almost 10 years to the time they recruited their IT Manager.

There were some areas of technical difficulty we were encountering and didn’t feel our old providers had the expertise to handle this. It was time to find someone who could help us develop and take us to the next stage of our IT plan.

The Solution

We were pleased they found our sales process comfortable. That’s important, because we like to think that alongside high standards of service, our clients must be comfortable with the way we operate. Thornbridge take the view that they need to be professional in their business, but that they need to be laid back too, and they see the same thing in us.

HBP was the first port of call, we found culturally that HBP were a good fit for us. We get hardware and network support, so all of our networks support is done via telephone and via regular visits.
