How REDCAT support:
Ferguson Transport has grown from a one computer company 15 years ago to one of the biggest independent hauliers in Scotland. With their growth and expansion into new premises just over a year ago, they have always been believers in centralisation and using technology to the full.
Ferguson’s customers rely heavily on getting their goods to their destination on time. Redcat is partnering Ferguson in delivering that commitment to the customer.
On face value their network is like any other, a Small Business Server 2008 and Desktop Clients. But underneath the bonnet lies a wealth of complexity and diversity to achieve that delivery to the customer. Using software packages for accounting, tracking trailer movements, tachograph management, engine diagnostics, and lorry unit tracking via GPS, their business cannot afford a breakdown.
Redcat has delivered a secure, stable and durable network, which copes with challenges they face daily, and the instant technical support demanded by such a fast-moving customer.
Its only by knowing Fergsuon Transport intimately and growing with them long-term, can we offer such peace of mind and a tailored service. Redcat can offer that journey for your IT needs.
