apt Hiller Group lifts its ICT landscape to QSC’s Pure Enterprise Cloud

Cologne, 2 August 2016 – apt Hiller GmbH, a Monheim-based metal processing company, will be relying with immediate effect on ICT services from the Pure Enterprise Cloud offered by QSC AG. The aim is to gradually and permanently standardise and centrally manage the Group’s previously highly heterogeneous ICT landscape across all of its locations. To this end, all of the Group’s 400 workplaces at its national and international locations will be equipped with "Enterprise Workplace Services”, a full-range workplace environment including all desired desktop and collaboration applications, as well as help desk functions. Further add-ons, such as Business Intelligence or ERP services from the Pure Enterprise Cloud, are possible at any time and are also planned. The service package will be rounded off by an MPLS-based corporate network based on QSC’s proprietary network infrastructure.

Rapid implementation and full-range cloud portfolio
The first employees of the apt Hiller Group will be equipped with standard, full-range workplace environments from the Pure Enterprise Cloud from October already.

Key factors motivating the decision in favour of QSC and its Pure Enterprise Cloud services are the one-stop service portfolio, ranging from Enterprise Workplaces via app operations through to proprietary infrastructure services, and their modular structure and scalability.

"In QSC, we have found a service provider that we as a medium-sized company can communicate with both uncomplicatedly and on an equal footing. Not only that, apt Hiller has grown rapidly in the past and will be expanding further in future. We need a solution that will grow with us, and that without any problems. For this, the Pure Enterprise Cloud, which will substantially boost our speed and flexibility, is the ideal platform", comments Klaus Mazurek, CIO at apt Hiller.

The core business of apt Hiller GmbH, which was founded in 1972, involves manufacturing sophisticated aluminium profiles, further processing these and performing finishing and assembly services. The company has shown consistently strong growth and plans to achieve above-average growth in future as well.

"With apt Hiller, we have gained a particularly successful medium-sized company as our customer. This shows that – with its Pure Enterprise Cloud – QSC understands the needs of SME players in particular and is seen as a genuine partner when it comes to digitisation", comments Udo Faulhaber, Chief Sales and Consulting Officer at QSC AG.
