Cybit has been selected as Winn Group’s managed IT services partner as part of a 3 year deal.
Under the Winn Group umbrella company, is Winn Solicitors, a leading accident specialist in the UK, as well as a multi award-winning firm, most recently achieving the Claims Management Company of the Year 2020 and Panintelligence Innovation Partner of the Year 2019.
Cybit will work alongside Winn Group’s internal IT department to support their servers and infrastructure. This will improve cost efficiency, business continuity, and resilience.
The 3 year deal commences in January 2021, with a premium FlexCare IT support package which covers their IT estate and provides frequent patching, security scanning and an experienced team of highly qualified Azure and AWS engineers.
Clint Milnes, Winn Group CIO, commented: “We are delighted to enter into a managed service support agreement with Cybit to assist and support our internal IT department, enabling us to utilise the knowledge Cybit clearly provide. This partnership will enhance our capabilities and offerings to our institutional and personal clients, and into the wider marketplace. I very much look forward to the relationship with Cybit who impressed greatly during the tender process with their knowledge and desire to assist Winn Group.”
Winn Group and Cybit will work together on an ongoing basis to improve the efficiency of IT support using automation and self-service customer portals.
Winn Group aims to stay ahead of the market with their service offering. Cybit will focus on managing their IT so they can concentrate on continuing to delivering value to their customers.
Chris Shields, Sales & Marketing Director at Cybit, says of the partnership: “This win is the result of Cybit demonstrating the value we can bring the team at Winn Group in both helping them bring best practice into supporting their existing systems with FlexCare, and delivering great service and value back to their customers and stakeholders as we help Winns get as much value as possible from cloud services. I look forward to building on our relationship with a very forward-thinking, market-leading organisation.”
Looking forward, the partnership will not only offer IT support and optimisation, but also a future roadmap of how Winn Group can continue to develop their innovative technologies, which includes automation and integration tools for the benefit of their customers and partners. Another goal is to migrate relevant parts of their infrastructure into a secure and tailored cloud environment.
