Background

Our partnership with Alexir started in 2012 following a major fire which nearly destroyed the business. The existing provider had carried out a lot of reinstatement work at a new site but price rises and ongoing problems led to a breakdown in the relationship.

Major investments in new technology were planned and Alexir went to market to find a new IT service provider. We pitched to the business and our hands-on knowledge of the technology needed and value-for-money were two key reasons Alexir chose Wessex IT. We are not “salesy”!

Over the years we have delivered sizable infrastructure projects to computerise and automate parts of the business and worked with a number of specialist printing and manufacturing vendors. A complete overhaul of backup, replication and disaster recovery provisions is also one of the highlights.
