To all our partners, customers and suppliers, thank you for a great 2018! With great pride, joy and satisfaction we look back on a great year.
The past year we have had the privilege to do some amazing projects. Many Proof of Concepts to help companies invest with certainty in new solutions for their IT-environment. Some companies had calamities in 2018, which we helped to overcome. Banks who had issues in their data center, a hack in the aviation branch, a fire at an international technology company and many others.
We facilitated datacenter systems to companies to help them with their migrations. To all kinds of new environments. We bought back many old storage and servers hardware, thus extended their economic life by re-using them for other rental projects. Next to the rental of storage, server and networking solutions, Appliances such as VxRail, Nutanix and Azure Stack became more popular.
The synergy between our strategic partners such as Dell EMC, Lenovo and IBM increased and we also had the fortune to start new partnerships with great partners such as Microsoft, Commvault and Micro Focus.
2018 was also the year of innovation and change. iRent became IRENT.systems, with a new logo, identity and website. We were lucky to welcome many new talents to our team such as Francis (pre-sales), Mike (account manager), Pascal (account manager DACH region), Cor (technology consultant/architect) and Kevin (system engineer). Next to that there has also been set a new course with Roderick who, with his drive and passion, now fulfills the role of business manager. Special thanks to our loyal team, without them as a strong foundation, this would not have been possible.
In short; a beautiful year to look back at!
What will 2019 bring us?
Our international growth will continue. At the moment, already over fifty percent of our projects take place outside our home region of The Netherlands.
We are looking to welcome many more new, passionate and enthusiastic colleagues as valuable additions to our team.
More strategic (international) partnerships will be made.
By providing the right solutions, renting and buying back old hardware, we will continue to fulfill our role in the realisation of creating a circular IT.
We wish everybody a beautiful and a healthy 2019! A year of new chances, growth and surprises! Help each other and don’t forget to enjoy along the way! We look forward to a great 2019!
