Who are LIV?


LIV is a brand created by the team at Eddisons Residential to partner with major investors and developers, focusing on the private rented sector (PRS).

The company provides management and support service for PRS schemes throughout the UK, with lettings, property and specialist block management all managed under the same roof. LIV has a portfolio of 11,000 units nationwide, with hands-on management delivered by a team covering every part of the residential property spectrum.

The company is working with institutional investors and developers on some of the UK’s most exciting PRS schemes. LIV’s involvement starts at the very beginning of a new housing scheme, and their team is helping to shape great buildings and superb living environments, which they believe will help to redefine the private rented sector in the UK.

The Dynamic solution


When the LIV team in Leeds was relocating to new offices, they were looking for a company that could support the migration of their IT system with minimum disruption to their day-to-day working.

We handled the migration of all IT services for 70 staff, not only to a new building but also to a new virtual IT environment, supported with Cloud-based antivirus software across the board. We also provided full staff training on the new Cloud system to help make the transition as smooth as possible and make sure everyone knew how to access everything they needed.

In addition, our team implemented a full server replication to support the company’s disaster recovery planning. This involved the safe duplication of company servers, which is now securely stored offsite to provide LIV with a complete backup solution.

The next phase of work involves helping the LIV team to keep their network fully secure through penetration testing, as well as implementing web filtering and endpoint security.

 

The result


The move to the new building and the transition to the new Cloud-based IT system went smoothly, allowing the LIV team to continue their work with little disruption. Andy Longbottom, group IT manager, says, “The migration of our 70-user IT system to a new office went without a hitch, thanks to the Dynamic Networks team.”
