Total outsourcing to IT Relation
In early spring of 2014 Sodemann Udstillingssystemer A/S wanted to find a hosting vendor for their new ERP system, and according to the original plan the rest of the IT should be kept in-house. But during the process it became obvious that the most profitable solution in all probability would be to outsource the entire IT platform.
Multiple advantages of total outsourcing
"We found a number of advantages which were for the benefit of the total-outsourcing", says Sebastian Plehn, IT and production manager at the Aarhus-based company.
"Sensitive information is stored on our servers, and I am more comfortable about the fact that they are being hosted in a secured location. Then I can be certain that continuous backup copies are made, and even though our buildings are exposed to fire or burglary, the information is safe with someone who protects it day and night."

More time for other tasks
Sodemann Udstillingssystemer A/S outsourced their entire IT platform to IT Relation in April 2014, and the IT and production manager has got more reasons to be happy with the decision to a total outsourcing:
"Now I have more time for other tasks, because I no longer need to put the same effort into operation. At the same time, any problems with the IT platform are solved faster than before, and finally good financial security comes from knowing that IT costs are now fixed and predictable."
Sebastian Plehn emphasises that in addition Sodemann Udstillingssystemer A/S has received an IT solution that supports the company’s development better than before.
"Our agreement with IT Relation gives us a scalable solution that is constantly adapted to the number of employees and the company's development. As an example if an employee leaves the company, we are not stuck with a license we cannot use. "
The IT and production manager also welcomes the awareness of the fact that the company's hosted servers are always completely updated by IT Relation. He says, that it was anything but a matter of chance that they chose Front-data.
It is about trust
"For us it was about trust and credibility, and IT Relations had the highest scores on these parameters. They lived up to the trust straight away. During the implementation phase they worked extremely efficiently, conscientiously and in a structured manner. There is no doubt that it means a lot to them to deliver a quality product."
