JCT600, the independent prestige car motor group, has gone to Simply Mail Solutions (SMS) to manage its e-mail systems.
JCT600 supplies BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Ferrari, Maserati, Lotus, Aston Martin and Bentley cars. It has 42 franchise outlets operating across the north of England, with an annual turnover of more than £600m.
Initially, 300 e-mail boxes will be managed on a dedicated server located at SMS' datacentre in Manchester. This will support Microsoft Outlook e-mail to desktops and to smartphones used by JCT600 staff.
SMS developed a solution to allow JCT600 joint secure administration access for key aspects of their e-mail systems, while removing the installation, configuration, backup and ongoing system administration burdens.
Nigel Shaw, JCT600 finance director, said, "It was clear that it was much more economic to outsource our e-mail than to try to run it in-house with all the hassle that involved."
