Our Clients and Case Studies
Case Study - Switch Concepts
The Brief; Switch Concepts wanted to move their hosting services over to a cloud solution which meant there was an opportunity to release some 300 servers that were in operation in a Slough Data Centre. They approached 3 different companies to bid on the equipment and happily they chose Flux IT to work with. We gave a market leading valuation and offered a very quick turn around on testing and payment.
How we helped; Flux-IT worked with Switch Concepts over a 9 month period, buying all the servers as they came available. We collected up to 50 servers at a time and were able to fully test these within 5 days to meet the clients requirement.
Full reports were provided to Switch Concepts and we were able to transfer the warranties on the servers to the new owners, this also mean there was very little adjustment required for the few failed parts.
All the servers were re-purposed, reused and put into production. Extending the lifetime use of the servers and reducing the environmental impact of destruction.
What Switch Concepts Said; 'Flux IT was professional and reliable from the start of the project, they worked with us to meet deadlines and was always upfront with any issues which they also helped us overcome. Would definitely recommend them to other companies that are looking to release equity in their surplus server equipment'
'Switch is a market leading technology platform for Publishers, with a reach of over 80% of the UK population.'
Case Study - Trainline
The Brief; Trainline had a huge variety of network, server and storage equipment that was surplus to requirements following internal upgrades. They wanted to get the best value back on the old equipment and preferred to have a single point of contact.
There was also a requirement to receive some new equipment as part of a trade in deal.
How we helped; Flux IT was initially approached as they had a quantity of Cisco equipment that they wanted to release the equity on and in the first instance we collected a number of switches, routers and firewalls.
Over the last 2 years Flux IT have worked with Trainline on different projects. We have mainly been buying their surplus network, server and storage equipment.
Since then we have had several collections from them including helping to remove a number of servers from a data centre in Docklands London. Our aim is to provide a single point of contact for all their surplus and redundant equipment, making the whole process as simple and quick as possible.
What Train Line said; 'We have worked with Flux IT on quite a few projects now, they give us an upfront offer on our kit, come and collect, and always make payment on time. We have used other companies but found we came back to Flux IT as they were the most reliable. Always a great service from the guys there.'
'Trainline is the UK’s leading independent train ticket retailer'
