Home Bargains has agreed a three-year managed hosting services contract with SysGroup.
Home Bargains, one of the UK’s fastest-growing high street discount retailers and which sits under the T.J. Morris Limited umbrella, selected SysGroup following a competitive process to deliver more than £950,000 worth of hosting and support.
Adam Binks, chief operating officer at SysGroup, said: “With GDPR just around the corner, businesses must ensure that their data is not only hosted in safe hands, but their environments are also protected from the vulnerabilities of the public internet.
“T.J. Morris is a significant win for SysGroup and we are delighted to have been appointed by another highly regarded, household name.
“The deal is a clear endorsement of our capability and managed services offering, and we look forward to working with more businesses like this in the retail sector going forward.”
Discussing the new partnership, Frank Christiansen, IT director at T.J. Morris Limited, added: “We selected SysGroup as our new managed services provider due to its strength, understanding and ability to implement security measures that conform to the requirements of GDPR, as well as its extensive flexible approach to IT solutions.”
SysGroup recorded a sales pipeline growth of 17.1 per cent in its half year results published in September 2017 and the £3.9m acquisition of managed IT, hosting and security services company Rockford IT Ltd.
