NITC build strong relationship with leading UK Direct Debit Bureau Smart Debit

SmartDebit, the UK’s leading Direct Debit Bureau, has successfully transferred the SmartDebit platform from their second data centre to a new facility alongside their specialist IT Service Provider, Nationwide IT Consultancy (NiTC)
The second data centre is part of a three provision security environment which powers the SmartDebit platform from two geographically separate locations, both completely disconnected from their headquarters in Bagshot, Surrey. Thanks to NiTC, particularly Director, Mark Darrah, the migration to the new data centre was seamless, with SmartDebit’s clients experiencing no interference with the collection of their Direct Debits.

Founded in 2010, Hampshire based NiTC provide specialist IT support and consultancy services to a range of businesses from SMEs through to larger corporates. NiTC’s vision is to increase their geographical coverage in the near future by opening more offices throughout the UK and Ireland.

SmartDebit’s Director of IT, Steven Drewett, commented “NiTC were instrumental in the construction of our brand new secure processing environment in the early part of 2011. They have delivered again, successfully migrating our third provision to a new data centre with minimal intervention and most importantly with no disruption to service”.

SmartDebit’s service has several layers of redundancy with three provisions located in two separate data centres, ensuring their clients’ data is safe and secure and their processing service is running 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
