Aged hardware and minimal support.


Upgraded server hardware, migration to Microsoft 365 and end-to-end IT Managed Services.


A reliable, high performance hybrid IT environment with first-class local support.

Updated ways of working

Elephant Hill Winery operating in Hawke’s Bay produce world-class wines and are known for their innovation. To remain at the cutting edge they needed to update their aged hardware and outdated operating systems.

How Spark added value

Spark IT and the local Hawke’s Bay Business Hub team sat down with Andreas and his team to talk through their specific IT needs and collaboratively designed a tailored end to end IT Managed Service and hardware refresh. They replaced outdated hardware and migrated email to Microsoft 365 resulting in higher performance, increased resilience and robust cloud backups.

The onboarding of Elephant Hill into Spark’s end to end IT Managed Service, LANcare, resulted in professional and responsive support, remotely or on-site where necessary.  All this is underpinned by a solid relationship where the local Spark IT Team are positioned as a key trusted and strategic advisor to the business.
