QuickThink Cloud are an outstanding company with excellent technical knowledge. Their response and resolution times are well above average, and the team are always willing to go above and beyond to help solve an issue.

About the project.

Currie & Brown wanted a fully managed (fully independent) UNIT4 Cloud solution that would be accessible to their extensive userbase around the globe. This included Advanced DR to ensure that their business remained online 24/7 with aggressive RTO and RPO objectives.

This required a complex, phased global rollout of the solution to a global userbase and extensive integrations / connectivity options to ensure that all aspects of the system were connected, seamless and (most importantly) delivered flawlessly to user populations based in offices spanning multiple continents.

With offices in North America, the Far East, Oceania and EMEA regions, it was clear that MPLS links would assist with the smooth and consistent delivery of both desktop and web-based applications. Through QuickThink Cloud’s extensive network of datacentres and POP’s, this MPLS network was deployed to ensure the quality of application delivery was maximised.
With such a global operation comes the need to ensure that it is ‘always available’. Whilst QuickThink Cloud’s HA (High Availability) platform and multiple datacentres allows us to offer 99.9% uptime to all our customers, Currie & Brown wanted 24/7 expert support available to keep their global business operations both available and supported. With 24/7 technical support available to all customers, QuickThink Cloud’s dedicated engineers work to ensure Currie & Brown’s systems are available and performing well at any time, day or night.
QuickThink Cloud operates several DR models, with Currie & Brown opting to utilise the Advanced DR solution as part of their global system deployment model. This ensures that all their data is continuously replicated over to a secondary datacentre that is geographically separated from the primary, with immediate failover options in the case of disaster. This further cements Currie & Brown’s commitment to its users to provide systems with true 24/7 availability.
Following Currie & Brown’s acquisition of Sweett Group, significant further integrations were required. Fortunately, Sweett Group had already previously benefitted from also hosting their UBW and training systems on QuickThink Cloud’s extensive cloud platform, which facilitated a smooth and speedy transition and integration of the two systems. Skilled Currie & Brown staff worked tirelessly to prepare the data for the integrations, with QuickThink Cloud engineers assisting to fuse the two architectures together to the benefit of all involved.

Currie & Brown now have a globally connected, high performance, high availability ERP system that is helping them realise their impressive global growth objectives. This allows for the timely and accurate capture of financial and operational management information to fully support and enhance the business going forward. The power and flexibility of QuickThink Cloud’s platform also allows for immediate expansion via their burst technology, as well as extensively supporting integrations and connectivity with the globally connected Currie & Brown networks.
