Bluestone Group is a successful portfolio and capital management business owned by a number of leading institutional investors. The Group currently consists of two core divisions, namely Bluestone Asset Management and Bluestone Capital Management.
Over the past eighteen months, Bluestone has been focused on organic business growth with expansion to Europe and building up its newest core division, Bluestone Servicing. To support these plans for growth, Bluestone needed to ensure its IT hardware and disaster recovery was up to the task.
For assistance, Bluestone turned to their trusted partner Interactive, with whom they had worked successfully with since 2005. Interactive provided Bluestone with hardware maintenance support for its Intel servers and NetApp data storage, in addition to multi-subscriber disaster recovery and co-location with racks at Interactive’s data centre in Sydney. With Interactive, Bluestone enjoys having one point of contact and a dedicated engineer, as well as industry-leading response times and 100% local parts availability – the best spare parts policy in the Australian industry. In addition to improved service levels, Bluestone realised a cost saving of 50% by handing over the maintenance on its networking infrastructure to Interactive.
Interactive provide big business capabilities with a personal, small business attitude to service that cannot be matched in the market.Bradley Locke, Chief Technology Officer
