A semi-retired local IT provider set up a new data recovery business working in a 20 mile radius of his house. He processes basic recoveries in a small workshop and anything else is sent to Lazarus for lab work. We have a great working relationship and are getting a considerable quantity of recoveries from him.
A former IT helpdesk operator who was made redundant has started his own IT support company with data recovery as a key service. This is showing to be a stepping stone for his business to provide ongoing support and sales to these now loyal customers.
For a large IT department of a multi-national corporation, partner pricing now allows the team to provide data recovery at management level and downwards. Previously, personal “sign offs” would not have covered a data recovery and so the lost work would have had to be re-done. With an the increase in home working previously robust back-up systems are not being used or are not suitable.
