Rename to RISC Group signals expansion of services

RISC Group : 15 April, 2009  (Company News)
As Clunk Click re-brands as RISC Group, the company moves towards offering new range of hosted services including data back up
Clunk Click has announced that they have moved into the second stage of their integration with RISC Group. Clunk Click, which has built a reputation for unrivalled data storage solutions over the last decade was acquired by RISC Group, one of the European leaders in IT Managed Services in June last year. RISC Group has 35 offices throughout Europe, 6 data centres including 2 in UK, 1,200 servers hosted to outsourced application, 4,500 servers remotely saved, 250 000 business computers secured and in '08 the organisation restored 30.5TB of data.

This agreement allows Clunk Click to offer RISC Group comprehensive portfolio of IT Managed Services in the UK. These services include Hosted Exchange, Application Hosting, Co Location, SaaS, Hosted Security Services and IBM Tivoli Storage solutions.

In the UK RISC IT Solutions also sells Storage Infrastructure Solutions to organisations such as NHS Trusts, Universities and Local Government as well as larger SMEs and Corporates. Their Storage Partners include, Riverbed, EMC, Commvault, Sun Microsystems, ExaGrid amongst others and they are a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner.

Clunk Click partner division has also had a change of name now known as RISC Group Business Partners the team will begin launching the new IT Managed Services through their reseller channel. There are plans to also offer VOIP and Networking. The last few months have seen the internal teams working together to ensure that processes were aligned for these services to have the levels of resources necessary for success.

"Our strategy is to grow organically whilst we also have the capital in place for acquisition." Commented Paul Roberts UK Managing Director. "We have the budget and the resources to become one of the leading players in the UK IT Managed Services environment by 2012 and we are on track to achieving this goal. We have the portfolio of services, the infrastructure and the financial backing to make partnering with us a recipe for success for channel resellers and we invite suitable channel partners to join us today"

The company which has an impressive 1,600 channel partners throughout Europe is keen to build their reseller numbers in the UK by offering the highest "value add" support package currently available. These include proven sales technique training; high quality marketing support; dedicated account managers and a 24 hour UK based technical support line. All of which are proven to grow partners' revenues.

"At a time when many are cutting back their support we have the resources to push on with our growth plans, as our tagline says, Step forward into growth with RISC Group IT Solutions." Continued Roberts; "According to annalists Sales in IT Managed Services are set to increase by 20% this year as opposed to 2.5% in the IT industry as a whole, which shows that the demand is there."

This can be exemplified by the fact that in an industry that has seen redundancies in recent months, RISC Group IT Solutions is recruiting for IT sales and technical support staff with proven records of success.
