A charity is investing in its IT in a bid to ensure it has a more resilient tech infrastructure and comprehensive disaster recovery plan in place.
ITEC, based in Redruth, Cornwall, was selected to provide IT support for Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust (CAAT) following a rigorous tendering process.
The essential support, the charity says, will ensure vital computer communications remain robust, enabling the charitable trust to raise the money to fund the helicopter’s 700 missions a year.
CAAT, which receives no taxpayers’ money or National Lottery grants, relies on the public to raise the £3m needed annually to keep the lifesaving helicopter and crew flying.
The trust identified the need for a more resilient IT infrastructure and a comprehensive disaster recovery plan, which ITEC will deliver through proactive remote monitoring and 24/7 support.
Paula Martin, chief executive of Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust said: “The charity’s IT infrastructure is essential since, amongst other purposes, it safeguards the communications that raise the necessary funds from the public that keep Cornwall Air Ambulance flying. We are delighted to be working with ITEC.”
