In 2015 Vysiion was created when RFL Communications plc acquired IT Solutions and JAD Integrated Services.
RFL with a heritage and strength in infrastructure, network infrastructure design, delivery and support, combined with IT Solution’s IT, products and technical services dimension and JAD’s hosting, cloud and outsourcing experience. This complementary union has resulted in an organisation that is better placed to deliver managed technology solutions to a variety of customers.
RFL Communications plc
RFL became a plc in 1996, however its history can be traced back to the early 1970’s. It developed as a turnkey systems integrator, with offerings from design and installation services through to 24/7 service and support.
It designed and installed communication systems to ensure that power networks and transport systems continued to run smoothly. Systems included fibre optic, radio and digital technology to convey critical voice, data, control and command signals between substations and control centres.
It was an internationally recognised company, offering full service packages covering everything from a network upgrade to a new offshore wind farm installation. RFL has supplied systems for national electricity grids in Jordan, Qatar, Azerbaijan, St Lucia, Abu Dhabi and Kenya. Recent expertise includes supplying systems for most of Britain’s offshore windfarms.
IT Solutions (‘ITS’)
ITS was founded in 2005 to deliver strategic and best of breed cloud computing and IT support to SME companies across the UK. The company was passionate about service excellence and attaining the highest levels of customer satisfaction, by ensuring every delivered project exceeded expectations. ITS excelled at roadmapping and future-proofing IT for rapidly scaling multi-site organisations; providing cloud services including hybrid and private cloud infrastructure; online backup and disaster recovery as well as exceptional IT support.
ITS had offices in Wiltshire and Hampshire, monitored over 1,000 servers and supported more than 6,000 end-users across the UK. Customers included Ark Data Centres, Oasis Healthcare, Hills Group, Feel Good Drinks, Myla Lingerie and Help the Hospices.
The 24/7 ITIL underpinned service desk was key to the offering, giving a single point of contact regarding all technology issues.
JAD Integrated Services
Like RFL, JAD can trace its history back to the 1970’s. Based in Plymouth, JAD delivered IT services and solutions to the commercial and public sector markets. In more recent years, JAD focused its expertise on delivering cloud based solutions and successfully qualifying for the G-Cloud 3, 4 and 5 frameworks, which was a testament to JAD’s knowledge of both cloud-based solutions and the needs of public sector.
