CASE STUDY: John Bradshaw & Son
About John Bradshaw & Son
John Bradshaw & Son Ltd is a removal company based in the UK. Operating since 1884, it’s the parent company of both Britannia Bradshaw and Bradshaw Corporate Logistics (BCL). Britannia Bradshaw are house removal experts whilst BCL specialise in office moves for businesses of any size. The Company is based across multiple sites and carries out relocations throughout the UK.
John Bradshaw & Son were experiencing several issues which their existing IT Company had been unable to resolve. They were having connectivity difficulties between their Manchester, Birmingham, and Stafford sites. In turn, staff were unable to efficiently connect to the programme used to organise the delivery trucks.
In short, John Bradshaw & Son requires a solution that enables staff to seamlessly connect and work on programmes from any and every office. Furthermore, the Company cannot take credit card information: they’d not yet passed their online security audit.
Ultimately, John Bradshaw and Son need reliable support with these and several other issues. As a result, they contact the technology specialists at Venom IT.
After discussing the requirements, Venom IT then evaluates John Bradshaw and Son’s existing IT environment. Ultimately, that means assessing several areas of the business.
- First, we examine their operating efficiency.
- Then, we evaluate their capacity for growth.
- Finally, we analyse their existing cybersecurity measures.
This, in turn, helps to give us a full understanding of exactly what John Bradshaw & Son need in terms of IT.
