Richard Kendall Estate Agent expanding operations with new IT Support from Techn22

Richard Kendall Estate Agent

Richard Kendall Estate Agent recently approached Techn22 to review their IT Support and advise on staying IT relevant whilst continuing their operation expansion plans across South Yorkshire.

The customer

Richard Kendall Estate Agent is a UK-based estate agency that operates in the Wakefield and Pontefract areas of West Yorkshire. The agency was founded in 1991 by Richard Kendall and has since grown to become one of the largest and most successful independent estate agents in the region.

The agency offers a wide range of services related to property buying, selling, and letting. These include property valuations, marketing, property management, and relocation services. The agency also provides advice on mortgages and conveyancing.

Richard Kendall Estate Agent has a team of experienced and knowledgeable professionals who are dedicated to providing the highest levels of customer service. The agency prides itself on its local knowledge and expertise, and its staff are familiar with the local property market and trends.

The agency has won several awards over the years, including the Gold Award for Best Estate Agent in the Wakefield area at the British Property Awards. Richard Kendall Estate Agent is also a member of several professional bodies, including the National Association of Estate Agents (NAEA), the Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA), and the Property Ombudsman.

The requirement

Richard Kendall approached Techn22 to refresh their IT estate and support the business with a scalable solution that fits with their desire to expand operations. The existing system was starting to fray around the edges so having a solution that can adapt to changing business needs was crucial.

Connectivity was also a problem in some locations so new internet lines with added resilience were required.

Lastly replacing a number of ageing PC’s to complement the new environment rounded the requirements off nicely.

The solution

Techn22 provided Richard Kendall with a new Microsoft Azure environment utilising Multi-Factor Authentication to ensure user security is maintained. Coupled with Microsoft Identity Protection & Conditional Access, we can ensure only authorised users from recognised locations can access the environment.

Productivity solutions included Microsoft Office 366,  Exchange Online for email & SharePoint for document management. Again, this ensures licensing is efficient and scalable for their requirements.

Connectivity arrived with a combination of FTTC (Fibre to the Cabinet) and FTTP (Fibre to the Premises) broadband lines and a 200/200 lease line.

The migration took place over the course of a weekend, with the assistance of the outgoing provider, meaning there was no downtime for the users. Standard practice for Techn22.

“Richard Kendall Estate Agent is delighted to be working with Techn22, to provide improved and enhanced IT services for our growing business.

In today’s market it has never been so important to ensure you are one step ahead of the technology game and to have a ‘go to’ company that you can trust and rely on 7 days a week is absolutely imperative.

We are thankful to have found a company who put’s their customer first and ensures that whatever their requirements are they provide sound, direct advice.”
