Proact helped retail giants meet their customers’ growing needs with high-performance storage, supported 24/7

Franmax provides support services to retail chain companies belonging to the Maxima Group in Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Bulgaria and Poland.
One of the companies Franmax supports is the largest retailer in Lithuania. Together with other Maxima stores, they are visited by more than 550,000 buyers every day. And, like any successful company with customers that depend on them, Franmax requires IT systems that work flawlessly to meet their ever-growing needs.

The challenge

Franmax used a range of ageing technologies for data storage and had reached a point where its outdated infrastructure could not meet growing data capacity and performance requirements.
Franmax went looking for a way to save time by modernising its IT storage systems.

The solution

When the tender was announced, Proact proposed the best-value solution in a very competitive environment. Six storage systems were consolidated into two all-flash storage environments, resulting in spectacular performance gains. Proact implemented the infrastructure to ensure smooth migration to the new systems. And, by consolidating data and enabling staff to work centrally, we vastly improved Franmax’s IT set up. 

“As we are working with very crucial data, we needed a solution which could help us centralise the management of the data and enhance performance. Proact’s team provided us with a solution that could bring us more efficiency and migration that ran smoothly. Proact immediately offered us an implementation plan which included all the steps that had to be taken – this was convenient for us.”
