Enable growth

We’re growing fast, both in the UK and overseas, so we needed an office IT solution that is easy and supports our expansion plans. Zynstra has helped us to achieve consistency internally and free up our time to work on other more strategic projects.

Business Profile

MADE.COM is on a mission to offer great design direct from the makers. Their philosophy is to leverage the Internet to apply the economy of scale in manufacturing, so that even the most beautiful and high-end design will eventually become accessible and affordable to every one.

MADE was founded on the belief that they’ll be able to revolutionise the home furnishing industry, which is gigantic in size but extremely opaque and slow moving. Attitude and courage are the qualities with which MADE are making a difference.

Case Study

Growth & flexibility

As a growing business, MADE was looking for an internal IT environment that supported its growth, providing flexibility and scalability with predictable costs.

IT service and support

In order to focus on business growth MADE also looked to partner with a trusted provider to take ownership of day-to-day IT systems and activities, allowing the team to focus on strategic IT decisions that differentiate the business.

International consistency

The solution scope included installation of systems that would ensure consistency and efficiency of operations across two major office locations using a Hybrid Cloud environment, and including policy and desktop management. Alongside this, MADE needed new fibre connectivity to support the growth of network traffic.

 

Why Zynstra

To address these requirements, MADE.com’s trusted service partner deployed Zynstra’s Hybrid Cloud technology in the two main locations, all packaged with Easynet fibre connectivity.

The system provides secure access for all employees and devices within the organization, maintaining local control of user privileges, a high degree of resilience and scalability to support future growth. Resilient hardware, monitoring, storage, local and cloud back up, disaster recovery and end to end support of all client devices and the network are all included within the monthly subscription fee.

BENEFITS OF THE SOLUTION
Hybrid Cloud combines the best of the Cloud – remote access, disaster recovery and backup and simple management, with the best of local IT – supreme security, the fastest access to local data, flexibility and control.

  • Scalable, resilient Hybrid IT
  • Multi-site employee access with onsite control of user privileges and policy
  • Predictable and manageable costs
  • Companywide consistent and efficient IT operations
  • Helpdesk support of client devices (PC and MAC OS) and network
