A very challenging environment  

As part of its role, the company has to develop a detailed reports to support its’ customers. It needs to create and deliver these efficiently and quickly, in various locations, across the globe. Its office technology must be as mobile as its consultants, allowing reports to be delivered and easy communications and collaborations between consultants and clients.

Here’s the solution

‘Solar provides a service which supports the technology that we use and meets the company’s needs allowing us flexibility and mobility,’ said Mel Davies IT Manager. ‘As a company that is growing and dynamic and mobile, the service that we needed was something that didn’t tie us down to something we constantly have to replace. There is no need to do that with Solar.’

Ricktec chose Solar based on a trusted relationship Mel had formed over many years with members of the Solar team. He had seen them forge a long and successful career working in the industry and, had proven to him before, that they could deliver on their promises.

‘No matter where I’ve been, these have always been the people that I could rely on,’ said Mel. ‘These people work at Solar.’

Working as a Risktec consultant himself, he has used the technology in the field and couldn’t be happier with his decision. ‘Solar has proven that it can meet those dynamic needs, can support us, and look after us,’ he said. ‘They deliver the service where we need it.’

IT Manager Mel Davis also works as a consultant so has first-hand knowledge of the benefits provided by working with Solar both as a consultant and delivering the services provided by them.
