REVILO Automotive, a UK leader in prestige car buying, has revved up its performance capability after teaming up with East Lancashire technology specialist Holker IT.

Part of the Revilo Group, the fast-expanding brand Revilo Automotive has installed a state-of-the-art computer and communication system.

Lee Collins, chief executive at Revilo, said: “The success of our operation rests on how we manage our customers and our data, so this is a very big deal for us - in every respect.

“IT and communication is at the core of everything we do and we need the highest level of efficiency in our day-to-day systems. There can be no compromises.

“Holker IT came strongly recommended and it was immediately apparent that they could provide not only the right level of knowledge and expertise, but also the best in systems, support, flexibility and value.

"Equally importantly, they were able to install a very sophisticated system from scratch in an incredibly tight time frame. We are delighted with the job they have done.”

So pleased, in fact, that the Revilo Group, with headquarters in Rochdale, has now announced Holker IT - initially involved as a project supplier - as its sole IT provider.

Matthew Metcalfe, managing director at Holker IT, based in Burnley, said: “To be entrusted with the IT provision at one of the county’s most progressive companies is a major coup for us.

“Lee made it clear from the outset that Revilo Automotive had very specific IT requirements, both for kit and capability, and we managed to get them switched across to a new system inside a month.

"The installation, which included all servers, data and wireless connections, telephones, printers/copiers, was not without its challenges, but we got there on time and on budget and are now looking forward to developing our partnership.”

Management and staff at Revilo Automotive were treated to a full demonstration of the new IT system by specialist technicians from Holker IT.
