After a calculated review process, Conroys selected Vo2 Hawkes Bay to be their long term IT partner. As part of the overall solution Vo2 proposed hosting Conroys core server infrastructure including customer website transaction engine in Vo2’s local data centre together with out of region backup. After a review of the existing WAN design, Vo2 worked with Conroys’ WAN provider to come up with an improved topology which not only removed bottlenecks in several places but also reduced risks and costs. The transition to this new arrangement was carefully planned and involved Conroys WAN provider and previous IT provider.
One of the Conroys’ key motivations behind their decision to partner with Vo2 was the strategic planning and guidance that Vo2 is able to provide their business. Vo2 employ vCIOs across their business who provide direction on a range of business and technology related activities.
"Technology have become major drivers in our business today, and with our ever increasing dependence we are acutely aware of the greater need for reliability, cyber security and risk management. Our initial interaction with Vo2 was to conduct an in depth assessment of our infrastructure and gather an understanding of ambitions moving into the future. The results of that process were the catalyst for us to embark on a partnership with Vo2. It is rewarding to have a partner on board who is dedicated to helping and guiding us through these exciting times." David Conroy – Managing Director
