“Unify Openscape Office proved to be the right choice”

THIRSTY WORK

Thatchers Cider is a cider maker based in Sandford, in North Somerset, England. The company started producing cider in 1904 and has continued in the same family since. They use several varieties of apples to make different brands, and also process other fruit to make perry. Their aim is to be the household name in cider.

“Our staff were being slowed down by out-of-date systems. Datasharp recommended some more up-to-date communications solutions, which have made a world of difference to our business.”
Stephen Farnie, IT Manager

THE CHALLENGE


Thatchers Cider have a large site with distributed buildings. They were running a different systems on different sites with no flexibility and no DR options for voice or data.

THE SOLUTION


A new lease line was installed with ADSL Backup. Dell SonicWALL firewall’s in High Availability were installed. 2 separate Unify Openscape Office systems were installed to begin with and when SIP bought all the distributed phone numbers together the systems were merged into a single system. Wi-Fi phones give them site wide comm’s and their secure gate entry system links back to the phone system for easy operation.

THE RESULT


“Our staff were being slowed down by out-of-date systems. Datasharp recommended some more up-to-date communications solutions, which have made a world of difference to our business. Datasharp have freed our staff from their desks by equipping them with the technology to execute simple tasks while out and about – like opening the new gate entry system from their WiFi phones. Fantastic!”
