Journey to Arcus Private Cloud

In the ever-evolving landscape of the retail industry, Betts, a cherished family-owned and operated company with a rich legacy spanning 130 years, has stood the test of time.

With a steadfast commitment to quality and customer satisfaction, Betts has been producing and selling shoes under its various brands, both online and through a network of 67 brick-and-mortar stores nationwide.

Over the course of the past five years, Betts and CorpCloud have collaborated closely, with CorpCloud assuming the pivotal role of managing Betts’ entire network infrastructure.

This partnership has not only transformed Betts’ technological landscape but has also fostered innovation, efficiency, and resilience in the face of an ever-evolving industry.

As the sands of time continued to shift, Betts faced a pivotal moment in its technology infrastructure.

Anthony Wald, a dedicated figure with 15 years of invaluable experience as Betts’ IT manager, recognised the urgent need for a modernisation initiative.

The existing equipment had grown antiquated, lethargic, and increasingly costly to maintain.

Betts was resolute in its quest for a solution that would not only catapult them into the future but also prove cost-effective in the long run.

Among the primary concerns that loomed large was the uncertainty associated with legacy providers’ pricing models, leaving Betts vulnerable to the dreaded “bill shock.”

It was clear that a transformative shift was necessary, one that would guarantee both technological resilience and budgetary predictability.

CorpCloud was on the cusp of unveiling a cutting-edge private cloud environment perfectly tailored to Betts’ unique needs.

What set CorpCloud apart was their unwavering commitment to providing a fixed price solution, assuring Betts of both substantial cost savings and protection from the capricious winds of unpredictable expenses.

Private Cloud Partnership

“We were coming up to do a refresh of our server equipment, and when they (CorpCloud) came in, they mentioned they were building a private cloud infrastructure. We got really excited to look at it, talk to them about it and understand it as it looked like a great fit for us. “

CorpCloud provides and maintains our corporate networks and our network out to our stores. We have built a relationship with them and they’ve become a trusted partner of ours. They’re also based locally like we are, and that local support is really important to us.

For Betts our server environment is the biggest factor as it is actually the back end of our retail website. So, without that running, our website doesn’t function properly.

Betts has an online presence that runs 24×7, and with the move to Arcus, we have peace of mind that this is always going to be readily available for our customers.

We chose CorpCloud because they’re a company we know and trust, they are always eager to pick up the phone and provide answers. We know that with anything CorpCloud does, they do it well, and they do it properly.”

Game Changer

“When we started CorpCloud, Betts were one of our first customers. Right from the start, Betts used us because of the support and the flexibility that we offer them, particularly with all the stores that they have.

When we were first developing the idea of what would become Arcus Cloud, Betts was one of the customers that were front of mind.

We are excited to launch Arcus with Betts as one of our first customers, because it’s going to be a game changer in the industry.”
