Since the first seed catalogue was published in 1855, Thompson & Morgan has grown to become one of the UK’s largest Mail Order Seed and Plant companies.
Thompson & Morgan has had a strong and trusted relationship with Corbel for more than 10 years.
Thompson & Morgan has a technical support contract with us, which is utilised for IT projects (scoping, consultancy and documentation), health checks, IT Training and escalation purposes from Thompson & Morgan’s own IT Department. The contract covers all aspects of their IT infrastructure from firewalls, spam solutions, telecoms, anti-virus, web access solutions, WAN links, server infrastructure, licensing and peripherals.
Corbel provides Thompson & Morgan with extensive disaster recovery services from a replicated infrastructure (key servers replicated in real time at a byte level), a ’hot seat’ facility in the event of a disaster – at our fully furnished DR site, together with call forwarding of key telephone numbers. This solution is configured for a mixture of physical and virtual servers.
With our purchasing power we are also able to provide competitive pricing for all of the IT procurement requirements of Thompson & Morgan. We offer a proactive relationship and work closely with the IT department.
“Corbel were the ideal partner of choice when reviewing our disaster recovery arrangements in 2010. They were able to understand our business requirements and deliver a practical solution, which would enable our key IT infrastructure to be fully up and running in the event of a disaster”
– Bryan Magrath, Chief Executive Officer
