Kindred Nurseries

Kindred are a fast growing group of children’s nurseries with 23 premises spread over the south of England.

Main Outcomes

We helped Kindred Nurseries develop an effective and future-proof IT strategy which reflects their long-term goals and business aspirations, transforming the way all of their locations function.

The Challenge

To support continued growth, Kindred were looking to appoint an IT provider who would understand their evolving business needs in a particularly sensitive market.  With no in house IT department and limited knowledge of the subject, they wanted to outsource their IT requirements to a trusted partner who would proactively support and guide their investment in technology.

With IT security being mission critical to the delivery of their safe services, Kindred needed a quick and efficient resolution to any day to day IT support issues.  As well as this, they wanted to update their IT infrastructure and provide a seamless user experience across all nursery sites for their busy team, in the office, at home and on the go.

The Cheeky Munkey Approach

With proven experience in the education sector, Cheeky Munkey carried out an initial consultation and IT audit to better understand and identify areas of immediate and future improvement based on Kindred’s requirements.

An upgrade of all hardware, network solutions and internet services and a migration to Office 365 to increase flexibility was recommended.  We then supplied new backup solutions to prevent and minimise risks (including data loss and downtime) across their new on-premise and cloud-based systems

Cheeky Munkey also recommended access to remote and onsite IT support for end users, with 24/7 network monitoring and management of their systems and infrastructure to take care of essential maintenance. As well as this, we deployed essential anti-virus and email security solutions across all end user devices.

The Outcome

Since partnering with Cheeky Munkey, Kindred have developed an effective IT strategy which reflects their long-term goals and future business aspirations which include further speedy growth.  With its hybrid (on-premise and cloud) IT environment providing an ideal platform for flexible working and busy nursery environments. This has allowed Kindred to provide a quality and cost-effective service to their nursery teams, regardless of location.  It has also increased their ability to compete, by enabling them to acquire more new businesses and integrate them effectively whilst also supporting the existing sites. All of this whilst keeping all their sensitive data about their little people very secure.

With regular reviews from their dedicated account manager, and our experienced team of IT and security experts on hand, Cheeky Munkey take charge of managing all of Kindred’s infrastructure, systems and users – so they can focus on core business activities.
