WHAT WE DO

Nostra will analyse your business needs and work with you to design the most effective and dynamic ICT strategy for you. We develop the solution, identify the best technology, implement it, support it, and maintain it with a range of trusted and proven skills in data infrastructure, managed IT services, cloud, networking and security, and contract resourcing.

YOU COME FIRST

OUR CLIENTS

With years experience providing our IT management services we have accumulated a wide variety of clients. From traditionally non-technological industries to some of the top ICT companies in Ireland, our experts have assisted in the improvement of data management, security and networking all across Europe.

“We chose Nostra as our IT provider because they understand our business and give a proactive approach to managing our IT. They provide the fastest response time from any IT company in our market but much more than this, they advise us on keeping our systems stable and our costs down. They have become a key IT manager to our business.”

“What Nostra do better than anyone else is free up management time. They allow us to focus on what’s important to our business while they look after every aspect of our IT platform. The service they provide is second to none and I look forward to our future work together.”

“Although Nostra have committed to 30 minute support, the support engineers are usually online and fixing any issue within 5 or 10 minutes and we’re generally back up and running within the 30 minutes. I would have no hesitation in recommending Nostra to any company who wish to cut IT costs without jeopardizing any service levels.”

“We have worked with Nostra as our Technology Partner since 2011. During that time we have moved our mail to Microsoft O365, upgraded our servers, and deployed Microsoft Virtualisation. In tandem with Nostra we have reviewed and upgraded our Business Continuity Plan and have put disaster recovery failover in place. All of these initiatives have been accomplished in a seamless, efficient, and hassle free manner with no down time to the company.”

OUR PARTNERS

Nostra have a number of partners that we work closely with in an effort to always remain at the forefront of our industry. Over the years our team have built an impressive array of Business Awards, IT Certifications, and IT Partner Accreditations. As a result we are dedicated to continue employing staff who are trained to the highest standards in the most relevant technologies and modern solutions. To do this we maintain close ties with world class technology providers as well as leading emerging technology companies.

SECTORS

Nostra aim to make life as easy as possible when it comes to finding the best solutions for your organisation and implementing them as quickly and as effectively as we can. We provide support to small, medium, and large organisations and can either increase or decrease the scale of our offering depending on what level of support is needed. We know from many years of experience that the complexity of IT systems vary greatly from a small business to a corporate entity, however we have both the range and breadth of experience to provide the same level of service to clients of all sizes and across all industries.

HOSPITALITY

Nostra have provided support for many years to some of the biggest hotel groups in the country, as well as a number of independent hotels throughout Ireland and the UK. We have built up vast experience in industry specific areas such as POS, booking, key card systems, Wi-Fi, and remote access.

It is a very unique industry which involves a tailored service and irregular operating hours to other industries. Nostra provide support to hotels no matter the hour, and provide a single point of contact for hotels to go through enabling them to bypass third party vendors who we deal with on their behalf. This also enables us to review costs of IT for our hospitality clients and help to negotiate better supplier deals to ensure the lowest cost, but maximum reliability and performance.

RETAIL

We manage the IT for a wide variety of businesses such as printing companies, advertising agencies, web designers, digital marketing providers, and publishing companies. We understand Mac’s and PC’s equally and we ensure seamless integration where design, print and management can all coordinate and work together to have an ultra-reliable common working space. We also understand that deadlines in this industry cannot be missed and computer stability and data reliability are all critical.

PUBLIC SECTOR

Nostra have provided ongoing support services and managed IT services to the public sector for many years. We have provided all kinds of services available, on both a small and large scale with on site IT teams. This kind of model allows for direct control to remain with the onsite support teams, but also allows for them to avail of our wide array of technical knowhow through our remote help desk, onsite consultancy services, RFP/Tender Process support and installation facilities. 

We have provided high end consultancy to public bodies on a range of subjects including Virtualisation, Business Continuity and DR Failover.

HEALTH

The health and wellness sector requires reliable and stable IT systems where information can be recalled very quickly, and any delay which may impact on patient care must be avoided. The focus in these businesses is always the client or patient, and therefore Nostra take very seriously the level of support required and place particular emphasis on response times for any reported issues. Nostra operate as the silent IT partner and deliver managed IT services which allow computers in both isolated and central clinics to be managed remotely, and when not in use, to have regular health checks completed. This level of proactive service enables the absolute stability which is required in the health sector.

MANUFACTURING

Nostra look after some of the most successful manufacturing companies in Ireland and the UK, whose turnover can be measured in millions of euro. Nostra provide full time engineers with a variety of roles from onsite maintenance to high end project management both with and without on-site IT teams. Our involvement includes day to day management of user issues. We know that these small issues whilst not overly complicated can often occupy vast amounts of an IT department’s time. Recent developments for this sector are implementing sophisticated replication environments and ERP server consolidation.

FINANCIAL SERVICES

Nostra have provided support and managed IT services for many years to some of the biggest hotel groups in the country, as well as a number of independent hotels throughout Ireland and the UK. We have built up vast experience in industry specific areas such as POS, booking, key card systems, Wi-Fi, and remote access.

GRAPHIC & WEB DESIGN

Nostra maintain the IT for a number of graphic art and web design companies and have come to understand that Apple technology plays a significant role in the daily operations of these companies. As such we have gone to great lengths to employ some of the highest qualified Apple engineers in the country. 

We manage the IT for a wide variety of businesses such as printing companies, advertising agencies, web designers, digital marketing providers, and publishing companies. We understand Mac’s and PC’s equally and we ensure seamless integration where design, print and management can all coordinate and work together to have an ultra-reliable common working space. We also understand that deadlines in this industry cannot be missed and computer stability and data reliability are all critical.

AVIATION

In recent years Nostra has become a market leader in providing IT support to organisations operating in the booming Aviation industry in Ireland, which has become a hub for European Aviation activity.

With our 24/7 support options and dedicated engineering resources we are able to provide managed IT services & support to companies that operate around the clock and deal in a variety of time zones around the world. Our engineers are skilled in a variety of industry specific technologies and have also successfully implemented the likes of Office 365 and industry leading DR and Failover solutions to provide resilient systems that stand up to international scrutiny. We also provide a high level of consultancy and security governance advice in keeping with standards such as Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX).

EDUCATION

Nostra support a number of schools and education providers around Ireland. It is a unique sector with its own demands that Nostra have come to understand well. As a Microsoft authorised education reseller and partner, we have successfully implemented cloud and virtualisation solutions along with hybrid scenarios that take into account the often constrained budgetary restrictions to which schools are subject.

Nostra are also well placed to advise schools on the various cost savings to be found in IT, with many of our large partners such as Microsoft offering significant discounts to organisations involved in education.

CHARITY

Nostra provide IT support to a number of charitable organisations around Ireland. Nostra are big advocates of both local and national charities and are always keen to help in any way that we can. Knowing the budgetary constraints that charities come under we are always willing to offer significantly discounted rates to charities, and free advice on how best to improve their IT estate.
