The importance of reliable and fault tolerant IT infrastructure in business has been highlighted with the confirmation of branch network connectivity at McMahons Builders Providers, thus ensuring all services are available 24/7.
Headquartered in Limerick and employing a staff of over 200 people, McMahons has a nationwide network of 14 retail and trade branches along with a roof truss manufacturing plant – locally, the company have a branch in Fermoy.
The provision of connection has been undertaken by AirSpeed Telecom, a leading provider of high-performance telecommunications products and services.
The upgrade to the branch network will help provide reliable resilient communication links between all their sites, head office and the internet.
Speaking this week on the development, Fermoy Branch Manager, Shane Hickey said: “It’s been a great success. The connectivity is more reliable and access is much faster. In a busy branch it’s very important that we have reliable access to the IT tools we need most especially our point of sale system.
“With the new connectivity we have the reliability and performance from the network we need to service our expanding customer base in Fermoy.”
While Brian O’Gorman, Group IT Manager, McMahons Builders Providers, said: “AirSpeed Telecom’s customer focused approach was a massive benefit when looking for the correct provider. They listened to what was required, and we liked their flexible proactive approach to meeting our business requirements.
“They gave us options for each site in terms of connectivity, circuit size, circuit type and path diversity. In addition, AirSpeed Telecom provided a Project Manager throughout the whole process from design to delivery, hosting weekly meetings for our IT team and Account Manager. This greatly helped ensure a smooth on time delivery of services.
“All the connectivity was delivered as per our schedule and as per our agreed IP design and configuration per site. The overall experience of the implementation and after service has been very positive and end users have also seen the benefit with improved performance and reliability of IT services.”
