Nicols Group is a leading European manufacturer focused on the market of household cleaning products: sponges, scouring sponges, wipes and microfiber wipes, air fresheners, toilet care products, insecticides and moth-repellent products. Nicols is one of the most important manufacturers of this type of specialized products for the European market. Headquartered in Belgium, and the main production centers are located in factories in France and Poland.
Recent years have brought dynamic development and growth of sales in the European market for Nicols Group. Poland has become a strategic market. With the increase in financial results, there appeared increased needs for IT infrastructure, including data center resources. The ultimate catalyst for the project turned out to be the internal transformation of the company, including migration of the Nicols headquarters to a new office in Nivelles, Belgium. On this occasion there was a need to find a new server room. Comarch’s offering turned out to be the most competitive one.
The project has three main goals:
In July 2013, the process of data migration from the current headquarters to our cloud began. At this stage, we acquired the know-how from the existing IT service provider, prepared our systems to accept Nicols applications and in December we started providing a whole set of services known as IaaS, or Infrastructure as a Service. In June 2014 Comarch launched Data Recovery Center (DRC) for Nicols and it was located in Comarch Data Center in Warsaw.
