THE CHALLENGE

Passion Digital are an up and coming digital agency based in the heart of Clapham. With their roots in SEO and social media the agency moved into web design 12 months ago. In deciding to make this move Passion realised that their existing shared hosting platform was no longer suitable for their needs or those of their increasingly high profile customer base.

Passion recognised that they needed a dedicated staging environment to fully support the delivery of WordPress sites for clients as well as robust infrastructure on which to host their own website. With a knowledgeable but busy team of designers and developers they were looking for a managed hosting solution built on the latest server technology.

THE SOLUTION

Passion initially looked at Rackspace but having come across Wirehive at a digital agency event they were keen to explore the benefits of working with a partner who was 100% dedicated to their industry. After an initial meeting to discuss their requirements Wirehive proposed Passion take a cloud server with a managed support contract.

Passion discovered that not only did Wirehive offer a superior technical specification of server as standard but that their management services really stacked up in terms of value for money. This coupled with the fact that Wirehive had demonstrated a deep understanding of their business gave Passion the confidence to move their entire hosting platform across.

THE APPROACH

Wirehive worked closely with the designers and developers at Passion to ensure a smooth roll out and adoption of the new platform. This collaborative approached has continued beyond initial delivery with Wirehive Support becoming an extension of the Passion Digital team, the two businesses working together to ensure client expectations are consistently exceeded.

WHY WIREHIVE?

Although Passion are thrilled with their new platform from a performance perspective for them the true value of the partnership is in the ongoing relationship with Wirehive Support who are always on hand at the end of the phone to help advise on new builds or resolve unexpected problems.

“As a growing agency we often go above and beyond to ensure we do a great job for our customers. It’s great to work with a company that thinks and acts in a similar way to you.”
