Actuated Solutions are a major supplier of
automated valves who work extensively with South Korean partners.
Digital Workshops became involved with them in partnership with a
Bognar Regis company who were supplying the network cabling for the
company and approached us to supply a server for Actuated.
We worked with Actuated to reconcile the
documents held on several machines and a NAS device in order to set up
a central document store. Using Microsoft Exchange, we
were able to create a email solution so that customer emails can be
seen by all users.
The directors often travel, especially to
South Korea and within Europe. Their smart 'phones are
integrated with their Exchange server mailboxes and diaries, allowing
them to continue to take an active part in the company, even when out
of the office. Remote access links via VPN's linked to virtual
machines are also available
to access and work with documents stored on the server.
We continue to support the server for
Actuated by remote access - we monitor it for problems and keep the
operating system and application software that runs on it up-to-date.
Eastbourne Lettings are
Eastbourne's premier lettings agent. Digital Workshops set up their
original office, installing the networking cables and an Elmeg
T484 ISDN telephone system. We then migrated this to a
telephone system using Cisco handsets in the office. Computing requirements were met with
a server based network, which is used for their specialist letting and
maintenance database software, as well as sharing general office
documents. An important aspect of their business are the
photographs they use to keep a record of the properties they
manage and the documentation they receive from landlords, tenants and
tradesmen. These documents are digitised with high speed
document scanners and saved on the server,
so they are accessible to everyone.
Another vital aspect of
the companies operations is common access to both received and sent
emails. This was achieved using a cloud based Microsoft Exchange Server using
a common mailbox in addition to personal mailboxes. This allows
everybody to have access to both company emails and a common diary,
both in and out of the office.
Filton Brewery Products
Originally based in
Eastbourne, Filton have now moved out to larger premises in Hailsham.
Filton sell and hire equipment to the brewery and associated trade and
have an active web presence.
We originally worked
with Filton when they were based in Eastbourne and maintained there
computer network. When the company moved to Hailsham, we
installed all the cabling for them, to provide a structured cabling
solution, and then move their computer and telephone equipment from
Eastbourne to Hailsham.
We renewed their
elderly single disk server, replacing it with a server based on a RAID
5 disk array to provide a
stable and secure network environment. This is vital as their business
has moved from being mainly telephone based to a Internet model.
We currently monitor their server and
provide upgrade services for them, as well as backing up their data so
they have an off site back up and providing telephone and remote
Internet based support for more specialist problems.
Gallery Furniture Systems Ltd
Systems are a major manufacturer of fitted kitchen and bedroom
furniture for the trade. Gallery Furniture were originally in a
split site, with the administration offices in one building and the
factory and assembly workshops in a second building.
supplied and installed a server to run their order
and production planning software, share documents and provide a
centralised, secure email system using Microsoft Exchange running
Microsoft Windows and Exchange 2003, later upgrading the hardware
and software to Windows SBS 2011 and Exchange 2010.
Gallery then made major
investments in CNC equipment. As part of this program, they were
able to amalgamate the administration and manufacturing buildings.
Digital Workshops planned and install a structured cable installation
for both the factory and new administration buildings, then moved all
the equipment from the original buildings to new building.
At the same time,
Digital Workshops upgraded the telephone system to a Elmeg T484,
project managing the conversion of the original poor quality analogue
telephone lines to ISDN2e to ensure the voice quality of calls.
We continue to support
Galleries computer and telephone systems as well as the computing
aspects of their CNC equipment, mostly by telephone and Internet based remote
support. We monitor their servers, applying updates to the
operating system and application software when required. We also
take a off site back up of their data, including their sales and
Limelight are a London based company who,
amongst other activities, design, build and install exhibition
stands, as well as breaking them down, removing them and storing them
at their site in Essex. They are very active in the film and
television market within Europe, supplying stands for exhibitions such
as the Cannes film festival.
Digital Workshops first became involved
with Limelight when we were asked to supply an ISDN telephone switch
for them, when they had a small design studio and production facility
in East London. This led to us installing a structured cable
solution and installing a server, with empathises on off line
files so that the staff could work on designs out of the office, which
would be transferred automatically to the server for safe keeping when
they returned to the office.
Limelight eventually moved from the East
London site, splitting the design offices and production workshops to
a site in North-East London and Essex. We designed and installed
the structured cable for both sites, then moved the original telephone
system to the design office and installed a new system in Essex.
We also moved the computer equipment and installed a second server at
the Essex site.
Originally running an Exchange 2003 mail
system, Limelight have been migrated to a cloud based Exchange
Limelight expended recently by acquiring a
graphics design and production company which they moved to their Essex
site. As part of this process we expanded the structured cabling
into the new graphics facility and integrated the companies files,
emails and hardware into the Limelight structure.
As well as servicing and maintaining
modern motor vehicles, Motorline specialise in classic car
servicing, classic and vintage car restoration and offer vehicle
storage. It is a real pleasure to visit them to see what exotica
they are currently working on.
Digital Workshops were instrumental in
upgrading their computer systems by introducing a server based network
to provide common access to their specialist vehicle maintenance
database and standard office documents. When the lease on
their telephone system expired we were able to step in and replace the
switch with reconditioned equipment at a considerable cost saving.
Motorline originally used an Exchange 2003
mail system and have now been evolved to a cloud based Exchange
Digital Workshops also supplied and
installed an IP camera for the site so that the site can be viewed
remotely via an Internet connection from a Internet browser or smart
