Challenge

Grupo Alkan is a leading holding company who develop comprehensive logistics solutions related to the import, distribution and marketing of the fuel sector. They wanted to modernise their existing infrastructure, optimising investment in equipment whilst incorporating modern platforms. The aim was to improve business processes, to guarantee the security and availability of data, enabling agile growth and easy administration.

Solution

Alkan turned to Logicalis to provide guidance on the best tool to tackle their current challenges, provide greater efficiency and capacity for future business growth. The team selected the VMWare virtualisation solution.

To future-proof the business further the team implemented a suite of services for Grupo Alkan to create and manage teams, allowing them flexibility to continue growing.
