Rade sponsor agri-food conference

Suffolk IT consultancy Rade is sponsoring the European Food and Farming Partnerships (EFFP) annual conference. Rade have provided IT and telecoms support to EFFP for the past 7 years, supporting both their headquarters and regional staff and over-seeing upgrades to their computer network and Internet connections.

This year’s EFFP conference, entitled Food GB: Stepping up to the plate, takes place at Plaisterer’s Hall in London on 2nd November. It will bring together business leaders from across the food and farming sectors.  Speakers include Steve Easterbrook, chief executive of McDonalds UK, and broadcaster Rosie Boycott, representing the London Food Board.

Rade managing director Jake Barton says: “The IT systems we design enable colleagues to share resources and highlight the benefits to be had from collaboration using the web. We are, therefore, pleased to sponsor the EFFP conference which will demonstrate how combining expertise from farming and food industries leads to business success.”

Rade procure Dell server for tech college

A technology-focused school needs a reliable computer network so Rade are often asked for advice in sourcing servers and desktops. One of our customers has added a further Dell PowerEdge 2950 rackmount server and tape backup unit to the existing server network. This client also favours Dell for workstations in their IT suite, so we procured 20 Dell Latitude E5400 laptops, with backup batteries to keep them running smoothly.

Santa delivery on Christmas Eve

In the twilight of Christmas Eve in snowy Suffolk, Rade came to the rescue of a man in a Santa hat waiting for delivery of a notebook PC. This last minute gift was delivered to the door (or rather through the hedge) as a surprise gift for his student daughter.

The Acer TravelMate laptop provides stylish and professional portability. More importantly, rigorous testing guarantees years of long-lasting, comfortable use.

While we enjoy spreading Christmas cheer we would like to remind customers to allow plenty of time for Christmas deliveries. We’ll do our very best to get your purchases to you as quickly as possible but remember warehouses and couriers are working to capacity and we can only arrange delivery to you when the goods reach us.
