Ensono transforms Whistl’s IT infrastructure

Whistl has selected Ensono to implement and manage the re-platforming of its IT applications to Ensono Private Cloud.

The postal delivery company will migrate business-critical workloads to Ensono’s private cloud platform, including its core logistics platform.

The transformation of its IT infrastructure provides Whistl with a hybrid IT model that will enable it to share workloads between private and public cloud environments as required to support its service offering.

Service enhancement

In 2017, Whistl and Ensono began a review of the technology infrastructure and, under the leadership of new IT Director Jason Powell, identified a number of areas for cost optimisation and service enhancement.

In addition, the new platform was selected to provide an agile, streamlined and cohesive infrastructure to support taking the business forward.

The move to the cloud will increase efficiency across the business and the speed to market of new Whistl services, ensuring a better customer experience and more agile delivery.

Innovation and efficiency

Jason Powell, IT Director at Whistl, said: “Whistl strives to lead the industry through technology, innovation and efficiency and migrating our IT estate to Ensono Private Cloud ensures we continue to deliver an excellent service to our customers.

“Whistl will be migrating key business services, including our core logistics platform, to Ensono Private Cloud to deliver a highly secure and stable environment, designed from the ground up to run business-critical applications.”

Cloud computing will also prepare the company for future growth as it expands its services and position within e-commerce fulfilment.
