The KIS Lettings team needed a technology solution that held great benefits, would deal with their growing team and would be cost-effective.
KIS Lettings is an innovative property management and lettings agency head quartered in South Shields with offices in North Shields and Sunderland and plans to secure premises in Newcastle. As part of its plans to treble its network by 2015, the business appointed Atlas Cloud to handle all its IT requirements.
Ajay Jagota, KIS Lettings’ CEO, explained “As we had grown, so had the demands on our server and quite frankly, the costs associated with an upgrade were untenable. We needed another option and it soon became clear that cloud technology held the greatest benefits if we made the jump. One provision, however, was that we still had existing hardware that was perfectly serviceable that we didn’t want to replace immediately, so the solution had to embrace what we had.”
At Atlas – first and foremost – we focus on assessing the capabilities and capacity of the existing IT infrastructure to support the customer’s needs now and in the future. Ajay recalls, “We spoke to three companies in total, two of which were based in the North East, but we were most impressed by Atlas Cloud.
“We are still using our existing hardware, but there will come a time when we will need to upgrade again and we will the lease what we need from Atlas Cloud, giving us the latest equipment without the associated overheads.”
“The team quickly understood our business objectives and built a scalable IT model that is highly secure, requires no maintenance from us and will serve us for years to come.“
