Brookson Invest In New Systems Infrastructure
on: March 29, 2010, 6:13 am
Brookson has embarked upon a major infrastructure upgrade
program with the introduction of a number of new products.
The accountancy support services provider and Umbrella Company has recently
introduced 2010 versions of Microsoft exchange and Microsoft SharePoint. The
introduction of Exchange will provide more integrated communication and improved
efficiencies regarding emails around the business, while SharePoint provides a far
more dexterous document management capability, consolidating the way Brookson store
documents, information and consequently how they manage data.
The project also sees the virtualisation of more than 24 physical servers onto 6
virtual hosts. This provides a number of benefits such as less power consumption due
to reduced need for cooling the servers, faster deployment of applications business
wide, easier maintenance and increased reliability.
These changes are intended to improve the efficiency of the services provided by
Brookson to its 9000 customers working through a Limited company, as a sole trader or as employees
of Brookson's umbrella company.
Lee Kingshott, Information Systems Director at Brookson, commented, "New technology
is something Brookson continue to invest in. With our current aspirations to
revolutionise the accountancy market, improving our in house technology is critical
