A Sheffield-based cloud computing specialist is helping to fuel record-growth at renewable energy specialists The Green Deal Initiative after securing a contract to overhaul its IT infrastructure.
Holbrook-based HA Hosting was approached by Green Deal Initiative to help it overcome a range of network issues which had cost the business an estimated £20,000 in lost orders and working time.
Green Deal has enjoyed significant growth since it was founded in 2012 with staff soaring from three to more than 200.
However, it left the IT system unfit for purpose, with staff struggling to access email and documents on its server.
HA Hosting, led by directors Rory Delahoyde and Stuart Stones, migrated Green Deal’s data and email servers to the cloud and installed a data back-up system.
Since adopting the cloud-based system, Green Deal has gone on to help more than 2,500 homeowners save more than £500,000 on energy bills.
It is also on track to secure a place in this year’s prestigious Fast Track 100 list, after winning a number of significant contracts with housing associations and local authorities across the UK.
