Scottish Sea Farms (SSF) grows premium quality Scottish Atlantic salmon and supplies leading retailers across the UK and overseas.
IT is critical to the success of their business, throughout every stage of their operations. As such, they wanted to upgrade their IT infrastructure to improve availability, resilience and performance. They also wanted recoverability options, allowing them to get their systems back online quickly if there was a problem at any of their various sites.
Using IBM and Lenovo technology, SCC implemented a solution that resulted in exactly this.
David Anderson, Head of IT at Scottish Sea Farms, said: “We chose SCC because of their reputation. They are a large IT reseller, who would give us the focus in terms of customer service and had the necessary depth of technical expertise to deliver the project effectively – and that’s exactly what they did.
“SCC has met our standards of excellence. As a food producer, we have to have high standards and stringent quality procedures, so we looked for a supplier that took quality equally seriously – SCC did just that
“The benefits we’ve seen since we completed the project with SCC were an undoubtedly faster platform – significantly improved availability and our recoverability has improved to the extent that recovering our key systems only takes a few minutes, when before it would probably have taken days.
“If anyone asked me to recommend SCC, it would be an absolute yes. We’ve been extremely impressed with their approach throughout the project and even after the project they’ve been extremely helpful as well. I’d say they’re now our go-to partner for IT solutions.
“If I were to sum up SCC in a few words, they would be: effective: professional and more importantly; on time.”
