Nicholls & Clarke plan future growth with support from Sunrise Software

Service Management software company, Sunrise Software, today announced that leading building materials and retail group, Nicholls & Clarke, has become the latest company to implement its IT Service Management software, Sunrise ITSM.

Underpinning the group’s impressive ITIL and ITSM best practice approach, Sunrise ITSM will enable the business to enhance IT and customer service, supporting its 550 strong workforce and gaining business insights at Board level.

The Nicholls & Clarke Group is a business dedicated to the manufacturing, distribution and retailing of quality building products. With 24 UK locations and over 550 employees to support, effective support infrastructure was something of a challenge to Narendra Joshi, Head of IT.  “Previously we used a home grown Service Desk system” explains Narendra, “However, in an ITIL compliant environment like ours, where all IT staff are ITIL trained, we felt that we needed to make the investment in a platform that would rise to meet our operational standards and grow with us into the future.”

Following a comprehensive market review, Nicholls & Clark selected Sunrise Software for its technology, its people and for the company’s pragmatic and understated approach. “We liked the flexibility that the software platform’s modular approach presented to us,” adds Joshi. “It means that we can take a phased approach and grow across the business. The browser based interface is ideal for our environment and, coupled with the software’s integration with social media, showed Sunrise to be a really forward thinking company.”
