Award winning LBS Builders Merchants recently announced expansion of their branch network with the opening of their new store in Maesteg, South Wales.
To support their continued business growth, LBS have recently completed a major project to improve their IT infrastructure by upgrading their main CounterAct server. LBS needed to be open as usual in their 14 branches so they could continue to provide the first class service that they are renowned for. Border Merchant Systems worked closely with LBS to ensure that there was minimal disruption during the server upgrade.
The work was started after close of business on Saturday to ensure that it was business as usual for LBS. Phil Davies of Border; “We always do our best to keep disruption to a minimum when we undertake any upgrade. With LBS having an extensive branch network, any downtime would have a massive impact on the business. Border’s planning ensured that LBS systems were up and running perfectly first thing on Monday morning.”
LBS were pleased that the changeover went so smoothly. Financial Director, Phil Evans said” The whole upgrade process was handled very professionally and delivered as promised by Border Merchant Systems. LBS are delighted with the results. “
