Agribar and Eurotux sign new service contract for infrastructure monitoring
Agribar has systematically adapted its technological infrastructure to the needs that the market and its cooperators require. More and more information is needed, of better quality and with greater availability.
Such technological infrastructure requires, like all others, a dedicated permanent follow-up, in order to keep the system always available and updated.
The resources required for such monitoring and follow-up are usually large and complex, which makes it complicated to manage with own resources.
Eurotux was chosen by Agribar to be responsible for the follow-up through a service in which Agribar will only have to focus on the application management which in this case is the responsibility of Grupoatwork, also a long time partner of Agribar.
All other tasks, including operating system upgrades, hardware, connectivity, backups and others, are the responsibility of Eurotux and provided as part of the infrastructure management services.
The Cooperativa Agrícola de Barcelos, better known as Agribar, was founded in 1931 and “is an undeniable economic and social force in the municipality of Barcelos” whose mission is to “satisfy the economic, social and cultural needs of farmers”, as it stands out on the Cooperativa’s website.
With a strong presence among its cooperators, Agribar promotes a dynamic intervention, both in the field of training and promotion, organizing various events, as well as in the social field with the communities where it operates.
In line with the continuous growth that marks its more than 80 years of existence, Agribar decided to invest in the optimization of processing and data storage capacities of the Information Technology System (IT).
It was in this context that the Cooperative counted on Eurotux’s collaboration, in order to improve the information management of its daily activity and to optimize security conditions and service availability.
