The deal follows a successful three-year partnership in which ADA provided a fully monitored IT environment, consolidated Scorpio’s IT infrastructure and implemented Microsoft Dynamics NAV across a marketing and distribution service that manages over 170 airlines, ferries, cruise liners and major duty-free shopping groups.
In addition to providing IT consolidation and virtualisation across Scorpio’s global platform, ADA will deliver disaster recovery support and Virtual CIO services in order to define Scorpio’s IT strategy. The move will allow Scorpio to focus on operational delivery and continue its rapid expansion plans, which have seen turnover grow from £12m to £25m over 4 years.
Carl Grieves, Chief Sales Officer at ADA Technology Services, comments: “As with any business, a successful partnership is one that is based on trust and Scorpio’s commitment to a four-year term demonstrates that ADA has achieved this. We are delighted with Scorpio’s decision and believe that the new service level agreement will continue to support their ambitious growth plans and help position the business as one of the UK’s most prominent distribution companies.”
Ian Cowie, Scorpio’s Chief Operational Officer, adds: “IT represents a huge component of Scorpio’s growth strategy and ADA’s skills, knowledge and expertise has meant that we haven’t worried about this side of the business since we began working with them in 2008. Our customers expect the best from a technology perspective and ADA continually ensures that we have in place whatever systems and procedures are necessary. ADA is just like any other department within the business and we see them as a key partner going forwards.”
