Unirisc plan for future growth with IaaS solution from Colt
Unirisc is a leading provider of insurance and HR services who, in partnership with other companies, deliver salary management, retirement planning, employee insurance and related services. Unirisc required a scalable infrastructure to support plans for growth and expansion and was seeking a partner who could help consolidate its applications onto a unified infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS).
Previously, Unirisc replaced server and storage hardware every few years, which was a time consuming exercise involving major capital expenditure. It was looking to move away from this process towards a more efficient and cost-effective infrastructure as a service.
Colt helped Unirisc move to IaaS through which there have been significant improvements in operations, for example, a payroll file now takes five minutes to calculate instead of an hour and a half.
Jean-Michel Beylard, Head of IT at Swiss Risk & Care Unirisc Group, states that "Since moving to Colt's IaaS, our applications have become much more responsive. The combination of modern, powerful infrastructure and faster, more reliable access means that all our operations run, on average, two-and-a-half times faster than before."
