Maxol has unveiled its brand-new system wide IT solution, which has been developed in conjunction with vCloud.ie.
13 October 2017
The Maxol Group has announced the roll-out of a new series of online business continuity services for its company-owned service station network. The new services and software were developed by Irish firm vCloud.ie.
The new programme will be implemented across 100 forecourt stores nationwide, and will see the retail convenience provider increase operational efficiencies in the event of any system failures.
According to a recent survey by vCloud, the cost of downtime can be in excess of €5,000 per hour without the appropriate planning. 73% of the respondents also said that they do not have a Disaster Recovery Plan in place.
“Putting this new system from vCloud.ie into place is an integral part of our Business Continuity Management strategy,” says Stephen McCormack, head of IT at the Maxol Group. “Maxol is an innovative and resilient company that has continued to grow at a pace in recent years and this investment underlines the importance we place in protecting our business systems to deliver the highest level of service to our growing customer base.”
The announcement comes as part of an ever-increasing vigilance to prevent disruptions to online operating systems, which may occur due to hardware or software failures, human error or cyber-attacks. This very week the Musgrave Group was subject to just such an attack.
Maxol’s new technology makes it possible to maintain a 100% IT uptime record, even in the event of an incident. This comes with the emergence of new technologies from the business which allow immediate recovery solutions.
