Travel Nation and Rickshaw Travel
We are delighted to have been appointed as IT Support provider to two travel companies based in Brighton; Travel Nation, who specialise in round-the-world adventures; and Rickshaw Travel, who specialise in authentic and immersive experiences. Both companies provide amazing and inspiring personalised holidays for their highly-complimentary clients. We’re now aiming to provide their employees with a similar standard of customer service.
The two companies were previously supported by one shared in-house IT technician. As both businesses flourish and grow, their IT strategy and infrastructure needs to adapt. They now require the broader skills and expertise of a managed IT service provider who can not only deliver their IT support but can also assist them with IT projects.
Our initial discussion with both companies involved understanding their business, their culture and their people, in addition to their IT infrastructure. From this information-gathering exercise we can complete the on-boarding process and start to advise on their business and IT goals moving forward.
Curve IT Support Service
We follow a specified process when we welcome new clients which starts with an on-site audit of existing IT systems. Then follows the on-boarding stage, where we establish and execute a detailed plan of action to move the clients IT systems into our IT management service, ensuring minimal disruption to business operations. We conduct an analysis and follow-up meeting with the client soon after the transition has taken place to ensure that all systems are functioning in their optimal manner.

- IT Support helpdesk (unlimited remote and on-site IT support)
- Monitoring and alerting systems
- Asset and license management
- Backup and anti-virus

We’ve really enjoyed getting to know both the teams at Travel Nation and Rickshaw Travel, and the fact that we’re all neighbours in New England House, Brighton, means we can borrow the odd cup of sugar from each other too!
Here’s a couple of comments we’ve already received about our service:
“I feel that our IT needs are in very safe hands with Curve. They handled a complex but well-planned transition of all our IT needs when we came on board and made the process much more simple than we anticipated. They are a friendly team and highly professional, so we have a very happy team!” – Jonny Goodall, Commercial Director | Travel Nation
“I just made my first call to Curve IT as my PC kept saying it was out of disc space. They logged straight on and got me all fixed and sorted really quickly… very impressive” – Paula | Rickshaw Travel
