APS metals

We have been well supported by Air IT (formerly known as Microtrding) since 2007. We really appreciate the time they take to understand our business and what we require from our IT systems. Recently, they recommended a new Virtual Server platform, clearly explaining the benefits to APS and when we took the decision to go ahead, they managed the project delivering in full, on time and on budget with the minimum of disruption. We regard Air IT as part of our team.

How we helped

A long-standing client of Air IT (formerly Microtrading), this world-leading manufacturer wanted to enhance the IT infrastructure it was reliant on. We introduced virtualisation technology to reduce hardware costs and increase business continuity, coupled with award-winning IT support.

Air IT has supported APS since 2007, helping them evolve their IT systems to maximise productivity and underpin the business growth. Recently, we implemented a new Virtual Server platform running Windows Server and Hyper-V technology. This uses two physical servers with the virtual machines replicated between each of them to maximise system uptime and manage production workloads.

Air IT provide ongoing managed IT services monitoring their system 24/7 and giving highly-skilled proactive support. Our award-winning service allows the APS management team to focus on their customers rather than being distracted by their IT system. The new IT infrastructure allows APS to be more responsive to their customers’ needs whilst ensuring high levels of productivity and system up-time.
