JPE has steadily developed its business of supplying aggregates, groundworks and site clearance over a period of more than 20 years. In doing so it has expanded to encompass four sites. Their head office is based in Essington, near Wolverhampton along with three quarries in Shire Oak, Walsall Wood; Seisdon and Ironbridge, Telford.
IT infrastructure that once served a single site was now being outgrown. JPE recognised that the growth of the business and the requirement for a system to manage quarry production meant that IT strategy needed to be reviewed.
They needed an IT partner that could help them design and implement:
• An infrastructure platform that could serve all JPE sites
• HQ and quarry interconnectivity
• A single enterprise class email and communications platform
• A managed support services
• Advice and guidance to ensure their systems always support the business objectives
Having evaluated a number of different suppliers’ proposals, JPE chose MSV Consultancy.
“We were very impressed with MSV as a group of people – they clearly knew the technology and they weren’t, pushy salespeople. They offered us an excellent service at a compelling price, then delivered.
We now have a robust and well managed back end infrastructure that supports every user at JPE. This provides the platform for our quarry management system via secure, VPN inter-site connectivity.
This coupled with Microsoft Office 365 with email, Skype for Business and other Microsoft Office tools, has transformed the way the business operates. MSV took time to make sure that the systems they implement work the way we need then to then support us in using them.
We now also take MSV’s Managed Support Service. This is particularly impressive, their attitude to service is truly second to none, with nothing being too much trouble and they are always happy to come to site.”
