VanCert is an example of how innovative software as a service can help small businesses

Dedicated server hosting specialist RapidSwitch has been chosen by a Manchester software company to support an innovative app that helps heating engineers work in a paperless environment.

Software company VanCert in Altrincham has designed a multi-platform software solution which enables oil & gas engineers to manage their workload and provide paperless safety certification to clients. The software means the engineer can raise a job directly through their smartphone or tablet and then complete the legal certification while still onsite.

RapidSwitch provides the servers, power and network connectivity from its N+1 data centres across the UK to support the software as a service.

Michael Fraser, Managing Director of VanCert, said: “Hundreds of oil & gas engineers and even chimney sweeps are now using our software to make their working days easier to manage. We’ve grown to the point where we are uploading ten to fifteen thousand jobs a day and the speed of the RapidSwitch network means the engineers using our software can get the information they need downloaded on to their mobile devices instantly.”

RapidSwitch has a national MPLS enabled network which means private circuits can be provided to customers not only between data centre sites but also direct to their offices.

Neil Christie, Commercial Director for RapidSwitch, added: “VanCert is an example of how innovative software as a service can help small businesses. The engineers can access the job and certification data from their portable smart devices and then transmit it back via the internet to be stored securely in our fully redundant data centres.”
