This year at Genmar
This year – As you can see form the previous posts this year, it has been a very exciting 12 months for us at Genmar. We have taken on three major new clients, Frosts Estate Agents, Goodfellows Estate Agents and recently Lauristons Estate Agents. All taking advantage of our Managed Hosted Desktop, Hosted Exchange and On-Site Support services. Also we are very happy to welcome aboard DMS Freight based at Heathrow using our Hosted Exchange service, THC Recruitment, a long established customer under an on-site support contract now migrated to Managed Hosted Desktop. We are also very pleased to receive Michael Horwitz Established in 1996 by founding partner Michael Horwitz the company has since distinguished itself as one of the leading specialist retail property advisors in the UK, they are highly regarded as the number one niche retail consultancy in London, covering all aspects of retail property and have unrivalled knowledge of Central London, with particular insight into Chelsea, Covent Garden, Mayfair, Knightsbridge and the West End. They are now enjoying our Managed Hosted Desktop service and we were so pleased to receive a glowing testimonial from them. More recently the Construction Plant-Hire Association, based in Barbican, City of London migrated their email to our Hosted Exchange platform. So a very busy 2013!
With such an increase in work we have also had to increase our staff numbers. After much advertising and many interviews we welcomed James into the fold. James has left his old employer (Vodafone) and has been working for Genmar on a part time basis while working his notice there and joins us full time on Jan 1st 2014 as 1st / 2nd Line Support Technician. Meanwhile we are still advertising and interviewing for PC / Workshop Engineer and Apprentice PC Engineer.
We have also invested time and resources into our newly revamped website and social media this year. So a huge thank you to Andy McNeil our web and social media guru for all his assistance and advice in guiding us through this. We would ask that any of you that have not already done so, to “like” us on FB and “follow” us on Twitter. Not only does this spread the good word about Genmar but can also give you helpful advice and access to special offers.
To look forward to in 2014 we already have three existing clients who have ordered new On-Premise Servers, upgrading their old equipment. We will be installing these excellent Dell servers during January providing these long established clients with many years of service and growth. We also hope to be taking on more Estate Agents during 2014.
Not only are we upgrading our staff numbers but we have also ordered three new servers ourselves to be located at our primary datacentre. This will not only provide us with even more redundancy but allow for much more expansion to take on new customers, we are also upgrading the existing servers to provide more speed and capacity to existing customers. Related to this we are also setting aside time and resources to massively upgrade our secondary datacentre, providing even more redundancy to our every growing hosted services sector.
I would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to all our new and existing customers for their business and support throughout 2013 and hope to welcome more on board in the next 12 months, also do not forget our Referral Scheme, if you feel that any one you know could benefit from Genmar’s range of services, just provide us with a lead. If this matures into business we will arrange commission payments to you. But more importantly your friends / clients will receive the benefits of being supported by Genmar 🙂
Have a great Christmas and all the very best for 2014.
