Following an implementation of protel PMS in 2009 and a migration of the application hosting service to Xn's new, co-located, Tier 3 data centre in 2012, Focus have now contracted with Xn to host the entire desktop for up to 70 users in the groupIn addition to protel, Xn will host third party accounts, procurement and bespoke systems on behalf of Focus, as well as providing fileserver space, Microsoft Exchange and Microsoft OfficeThe systems are hosted from Xn's data centre in Manchester, with secondary failover to a mirrored system in the company's London facility.
John Collis, Finance Director, commented :
"We've enjoyed a healthy relationship with Xn since we implemented protel back in 2009It made sense to have Xn also host the PMS application as a one-stop shop solution and the savings that we can now achieve by moving our entire desktop into the cloud with Xn are significant".
