T&C UK I.T Integration into the T&C Group

Apr-2013

In March 2013 we welcomed Haseem Mahamood from T&C Gulf Head office to our snowbound Oldham Office. His mission – to complete Phasehaseem  simon 1 of the I.T integration of T&C UK into the T&C Group.

This integration involved:-

  • The installation of a Mitel 3300 phone system enabling free direct calls internally, plus the system security that comes with the Mitel brand.
  • The installation of a new HP ProLiant DL380 domain server to bring T&C UK into the T&C Group I.T network . Relocation of the mail server to Dubai and creation of a VPN connection for Sage X3.

Haseem left Dubai, in a sizzling 40° centigrade, and landed at Manchester airport in a 0° centigrade weather front and found his first unexpected task was to locate a hat and pair of gloves.

Over the next ten days Haseem achieved all the main objectives with the minimum of disruption. The staff in the UK quickly came to appreciate Haseem’s easy going manner and widespanning I.T knowledge.

There were a few nights out in the eateries of Manchester and some interesting shopping expeditions in the local malls, plus, much to Haseem’s joy, quite a bit of snow.

Haseem became a friend of the T&C UK team and will provide excellent support to the ongoing integration and I.T support.
