Munkey Using a Laptop

England Hockey

England Hockey manages hockey in England from grass roots level through to elite athletes. It is also the nominated body for Great Britain Hockey.  It is the goal of England Hockey to promote hockey throughout England to all ages, backgrounds and genders.

The Challenge

Several years ago England Hockey were looking for a company that could provide them with outstanding computer services whilst also show that they really value their clients. Their search was over when they discovered Cheeky Munkey 10 years ago and England Hockey continue to be happy with the services they are receiving

The Solution

As part of an effort to streamline the marketing and funding operations, England Hockey decided to move to a unified database platform. While this provided the streamlined and cohesive environment, it introduced additional challenges in making sure all systems are operational and data 100% safe. Cheeky Munkey has reviewed requirements and with England Hockey’s approval, introduced virtualisation solution with redundant hosts and storage as well as DATTO backup and disaster recovery solution which provided the required redundancy and safe repositories for all England Hockey important data.

Did we also mention the consolidation part of the process and the 30% savings compared to the previous server infrastructure we introduced as an added benefit? We could probably call it WIN-WIN-WIN situation allowing England Hockey to focus on their core competencies – winning the next Olympic Games….

“We have been with Cheeky Munkey now for approximately 10 years and in that time I have had endless requests to move to other IT Support Co’s but I have never had any reason to do so. They provide excellent advice at a sensible price but most of all they have a customer focussed approach so they really are just like having an internal IT department.”  Ian Wilson , Business & Finance Director England Hockey
