Conroy Removals – Case Study

Conroy Removals have been moving New Zealanders for over 45 years. They are one of New Zealand’s leading removal companies and each year take care of removal services for thousands of people moving locally, around New Zealand and all over the world.

Conroy removals have been moving New Zealanders for over 45 years. The family owned firm is one of Australasia’s leading residential and corporate moving firms. In 1999 Conroys expanded into Australia and continued the success they have experienced in New Zealand. With staff now totaling over 300 on both sides of the Tasman they have experienced significant growth in recent years.

After a calculated review process, Conroys selected The Instillery Hawkes Bay to be their long term IT partner. As part of the overall solution The Instillery proposed hosting Conroys core server infrastructure including customer website transaction engine in The Instillery’s local data centre together with out of region backup. After a review of the existing WAN design, The Instillery worked with Conroys’ WAN provider to come up with an improved topology which not only removed bottlenecks in several places but also reduced risks and costs. The transition to this new arrangement was carefully planned and involved Conroys WAN provider and previous IT provider.

One of the Conroys’ key motivations behind their decision to partner with The Instillery was the strategic planning and guidance that The Instillery is able to provide their business. The Instillery employ vCIOs across their business who provide direction on a range of business and technology related activities.

“Technology have become major drivers in our business today, and with our ever increasing dependence we are acutely aware of the greater need for reliability, cyber security and risk management. Our initial interaction with The Instillery was to conduct an in depth assessment of our infrastructure and gather an understanding of ambitions moving into the future. The results of that process were the catalyst for us to embark on a partnership with The Instillery. It is rewarding to have a partner on board who is dedicated to helping and guiding us through these exciting times.”  David Conroy – Managing Director
