MotoNovo Finance selects NGD’s Cardiff data centre to support business expansion
Cardiff Capital Region - 14 September 2016: Next Generation Data (NGD) today announced Cardiff-based vehicle finance firm MotoNovo Finance as its latest customer.
A subsidiary of South Africa’s FirstRand Bank, MotoNovo has selected NGD’s colocation data centre located in the Cardiff Capital Region as part of its ongoing growth strategy which will include a move to new larger headquarters in Cardiff later this year and the recruitment of around 600 additional staff.
NGD’s 3+ data centre facility will provide the power, resilience and low latency connectivity MotoNovo demands for delivering reliable, fast hosting e-commerce services to thousands of UK garage dealer partners and consumers looking to finance cars, vans and motorcycles.
MotoNovo Finance said, “Thousands of dealers and members of the public access our online services every week for quotations and the subsequent processing and arrangement of our schemes. We therefore rely on the efficiency and availability of our web- and cloud-based platforms as well as their ability to scale as we continue to grow our business. NGD’s data centre facility offers the space, power and high speed connectivity we need for supporting our immediate and future requirements. Being conveniently located nearby is also an added advantage.”
Ben Senouillet, NGD’s account manager, added: “We are delighted to have been awarded MotoNovo’s business which clearly demonstrates the business benefits and competitive edge our locally-based world class data centre offers financial and other growing firms located in the region.”
