Proact supports Group Victor Peeters to prepare for new ERP platform and instant capacity demands
Group Victor Peeters is a leading specialist in industrial cleaning with over 45 construction yards in Belgium and the Netherlands. Peeters uses state-of-the-art technology to provide its customers with the best solutions. The company was planning to move to a new Microsoft Dynamics based ERP system. Also, it needed instant capacity for specific activities that could not easily be supported by its existing infrastructure, as this would take too long to implement. Koen van den Kerkhof, ICT manager, Group Victor Peeters, said: “We turned to Proact for expert advice and support. Thanks to this help we’ve been able to realise our goals for these two projects.”
Test & development
Ability to build and optimise new services without disrupting production systems.
Staff can access storage and compute when they need it.
Services can easily be moved to the cloud in the future.
Group Victor Peeters had a two challenges when it turned to Proact for help. First of all, they needed additional IT capacity for some specific activities. It was too complicated and time-consuming to prepare their existing infrastructure to support these initiative so asked Proact to come up with a solution. The second project involved the creation of a test and development environment for Peeters Group’s new ERP system. The company needed to stick to an on-premise platform to start off with, based on Microsoft Dynamics.
Proact created an IT as a Service-based proposition that enabled Victor Peeters to offer their staff compute and storage capacity on-demand by using a VDI platform.
Because Victor Peeters didn’t want to use their own data centre for test and development activities, Proact delivered a private cloud solution. The various iterations of their new ERP platform are hosted by Proact in its secure, local data centre. This way, they can test new services without impacting production systems.
Proact has played a tremendous role in providing support for both our ERP transition and our demand to have quick capacity for new activities
