Park Holidays UK, one of the largest operators in the country, has chosen IGEL as its strategic solution to support an ambitious merger and acquisition (M&A) growth strategy. They have been an IGEL customer for over a decade and have relied on IGEL’s technology to standardize their IT infrastructure and streamline their operations.
Park Holidays UK has grown both organically and through acquisitions, with the recent addition of nine parks from Bridge Leisure in 2021, Bodmin Holiday Park in 2022, and Park Leisure this month. Their portfolio now includes a total of 54 locations. With revenues of £228 million and EBITDA at £79.6 million in 2021, the company continues to achieve record performance.
By using IGEL’s managed endpoint operating system, Park Holidays UK has been able to create a standardized IT environment across all their locations. This has allowed for faster and easier deployment, configuration, and management of their desktop services. They have also benefited from a variety of other advantages, including native support for cloud-based applications, fast staff onboarding, enhanced security, lower cost, simplified management, and the ability for staff to easily work across sites.
Looking to the future, Park Holidays UK plans to implement Microsoft Teams for video conferencing capabilities using IGEL endpoints running IGEL OS.
According to Simon Townsend, IGEL’s chief marketing officer, IGEL’s technology has enabled Park Holidays UK’s rapid expansion plans by providing a simple and cost-effective way to deploy endpoints.
