Hawk Conservancy Trust

Hawk Conservancy TrustSaqqara carried out a thorough audit of the current infrastructure and systems and suggested areas for improvement. Saqqara now provides IT support which includes the entire network and equipment, secure Wi-Fi for visitors and staff and any other IT issues that affect the daily running of the site. Saqqara performs as the IT department for the Trust, assisting with the management of budgets and short and long term strategies.

Saqqara immediately replaced the overhead cabling with underground ducts containing multicore optic fibre to each principle building on site. This solution enabled the Trust to run data and voice over one main network allowing them to do a much needed upgrade on the telephone systems as well. This was implemented out of office hours, with minimal disturbance or downtime in terms of staff performance.

The ability to manage 3rd party relationships is of huge benefit to the Trust. They have been able to delegate this function to Saqqara with complete trust and confidence. The recent addition of a 120 cover capacity restaurant meant detailed project management of IT, telecoms and point of sale, during which Saqqara liaised with up to six suppliers and contractors.

Hawk Conservancy Trust said: “Saqqara has brought a host of benefits to the Trust, allowing us to make some initial capital investments which will equate to substantial savings in the long term. Saqqara encourages us to talk about the big picture and our goals as an organisation, they help us work towards it and save costs. While supporting and managing our IT, their service is outstanding and we can rely on them to support us 24hrs a day.”

Saqqara continues to work closely with the Hawk Conservancy Trust with planning to extend the fibre optic network infrastructure across the whole site to various multi use buildings.
