Hoge 100

Hoge 100 are a UK based software company who provide specialist financial software to schools, businesses and charities across the UK. Established over 30 years ago, Hoge 100 work with the top multi-academy trusts and many leading UK businesses. Since moving to hosted software, Hoge 100 have seen significant growth and have a strategy to increase their customer acquisition over the next five years.

More information can be found on their website.

Hoge 100 required a new Cloud provider because they were finding it expensive and time-consuming to add clients into their hosted environment. Their existing environment provided a slow and unstable customer experience.

After a full consultation and assessment of the various Cloud options available, Hoge100 awarded EBC Group the contract to host their specialist software system within their Infrastructure-as-a-Service (ebcCloud) platform.

The platform allows Hoge 100’s academic and commercial clients to interact with their specialist software system via a secure remote desktop environment, which in turn provides them with secure access to their applications and web based finance portals. In addition, Hoge 100 also utilise EBC Group’s ebcCloud platform to host a series of public facing online payment portals.

Each Hoge 100 tenant has their own secure remote desktop environment which leverages the power of Active Directory with Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) to enforce a high level of security protection.

EBC Group’s solution is focused on providing Hoge 100 with a highly scalable, reliable and secure platform which can grow in line with their fast-paced business.
