LW Reid prides itself on its immense stocking levels; with over 1,200,000 items in stock and needed a network that could handle their requirements.

Client results

Chris Ronnie, Technology Manager at LW Reid said: “Since KPMG Hands-on Systems completed our network refresh to a new IBM solution utilising the VMware platform, we have seen a dramatic improvement in the speed of our reports that are running in Microsoft Dynamics NAV. This coupled with the project coming in under budget means we have not only saved money but we are saving time and gaining efficiency.”

The project

KPMG had previously implemented a Microsoft Dynamics NAV solution with Power BI for reporting. When LW Reid found that their infrastructure and systems needed an upgrade, they contacted KPMG. KPMG implemented a network refresh, replacing their aging servers with a new IBM solution using the VMware platform.
