Anthony Nicholas Group is an international jewellery retailer that selected Stryve’s business continuity platform to support continued expansion and growth plans.
Anthony Nicholas Group is one of Ireland’s leading retailers with several jewellery companies including Fraser Hart, Fields, Lyons, Bernstones and Crouch. Across its businesses, the company employs almost 1,200 people. Anthony Nicholas Group offers a range of quality products to customers in both Ireland and the UK. For example, Fraser Hart began trading in 1936 and is now one of the UK’s leading jewellers with 39 shops nationwide. Similarly, Fields has been a market leader in Ireland since 1979 and has now expanded to 14 stores throughout Ireland.
Anthony Nicholas Group required a solution that could provide an enterprise Business Continuity Plan combined with an efficient cloud-based recovery solution. A solution that ensured optimal service to customers was key, therefore, Anthony Nicholas Group required a Recovery Point Objective (RPO) of seconds and a Recovery Time Objective (RTO) of minutes. The company’s previous solution was slow, required user intervention and was unable to fulfil the organisation’s business requirements. Anthony Nicholas Group needed a solution that would not impact the business operations in any way and guarantee a quick turnaround - measurable in minutes, not days!
Stryve conducted an audit of the organisation’s system and then implemented a solution which had zero impact on the business. Stryve were able to fulfil Anthony Nicholas Group’s essential requirements using a combination of two of our business continuity products - Online Backups and Disaster Recovery. The packages were tailor-made to ensure a perfect fit for the Business Continuity requirements of an expanding organisation with a substantial international presence.
Stryve’s solution minimised disruption to the Anthony Nicholas Group’s business and customers, giving the company an edge over its competitors.
Keith Baxter, CIO at Anthony Nicholas Group, explains, “Business continuity planning has always been a key focus of the Anthony Nicholas Group as we strive to ensure that our customers' experience remains optimal at all times. Stryve provided a unique service in allowing us to reach key business continuity targets set by the business”
Baxter describes the organisation’s experience with Stryve as, “A unique personable partnership with a solution-driven approach.”
