Maxol Roll Out Irish Tech Solution Across 100 Stores Nationwide

The Maxol Group, the country’s leading family owned forecourt convenience retailer has announced the roll out of a new series of online business continuity services for its company owned service station network developed by Irish firm vCloud.ie. The new programme will be implemented across 100 forecourt stores nationwide and will see the retail convenience provider increase operational efficiencies in the event of any system failures.

A recent survey by the Kildare based firm revealed that 42 % of companies estimated the cost of downtime to be more than €5,000 per hour. Worryingly, 73% of the respondents also say that they do not have a Disaster Recovery Plan in place.

Stephen McCormack, Head of IT at the Maxol Group, stated, “Putting this new system from vCloud.ie into place is an integral part of our Business Continuity Management strategy. Maxol is an innovative and resilient company that has continued to grow at a pace in recent years and this investment underlines the importance we place in protecting our business systems to deliver the highest level of service to our growing customer base. ”

With a turnover in excess of €600 million per annum, Maxol indirectly employs over 1,000 people on the island of Ireland. The announcement comes as part of an ever-increasing vigilance to prevent disruptions to online operating systems, which may occur due to hardware or software failures, human error or cyber-attacks.

The Kildare-based tech company say that it is now possible to maintain a 100% IT uptime record, even in the event of an incident. This comes with the emergence of new technologies from the business which allow immediate recovery solutions.

Richard Meehan, CEO of vCloud.ie says, “Building and improving resilience within any business should be a top priority for companies of all sizes. System failures can seriously impact the provision of services or products. Companies should be positioned to recover quickly and with minimum adverse effects such as financial loss or reputational. This kind of loss is largely preventable if the correct structures are in place initially. Our product allows the client to restore operations, from a remote site, with just the click of a button should a system failure occur. We are delighted to be working with Maxol, one of the most respected family owned businesses in Ireland.”

With offices in the UK, Poland and Ireland, vCloud.ie are the only Irish company providing dedicated Business Continuity Services.www.vcloud.ie.
