As a rapidly growing pet speciality retailer with stores open 363 days, Petbarn needed an IT partner that could architect long term solutions and provide advanced support as needed. ITConsult understands the cost challenges all retailers face and have been instrumental in designing infrastructure changes that meet our growth demand and managing our tendering process to get substantial savings
Nik Laskaris, Group IT Manager, Petbarn
Petbarn is Australia’s largest pet retailer with over 200 stores Australia-wide. Through its success, Petbarn now has stores in every state and territory across the country with plans to open even more stores in the near future.
As Petbarn’s business strategy forecast aggressive growth plans, the next iteration of its IT infrastructure needed to take a different approach. Future infrastructure systems needed to deliver high levels of performance and availability to match the growth of the business.
Like many organisations, Petbarn’s IT expanded as the business did. Multiple sites were running infrastructure. Petbarn was consuming more and more resources. The business was no longer operating in-line with it’s lean IT strategy.
Petbarn’s hybrid IT environment delivers operational efficiency through the leaner IT managed with a managed service program provided by ITConsult
