PJ Nicholls Ltd

Leading Car Dealership Across 3 Counties

The Business

P.J. Nicholls Ltd. was established in 1984 by Philip Nicholls as a Ford Dealership in Pershore, Worcestershire. The company remains family owned and run with Philip’s two sons, Tom and Adam, managing the business. Since 1984 the company has expanded across two Counties (Gloucestershire and Herefordshire) with branches at Pershore, Tewkesbury, Evesham, Malvern and Ledbury. They offer main dealership services for Ford and SsangYong, HiQ Service centres and have retail partnerships with Nisa and Spar plus selling and fitting the vehicle roof mounted tents Tentbox.

Site Audits

As in all businesses IT systems have become essential in the automotive trade and support for these services across multiple locations was becoming difficult. The organisation was looking to standardise  the on-site infrastructure and to enable remote support. ICTn conducted audits at all sites and a comprehensive solution proposed. The solution looked to cover all aspects of the infrastructure:

  • Broadband
  • Firewall
  • Comms Cabinets
  • Switches
  • Data Point  Provision
  • WiFi
  • Security
  • Backup
  • Telecoms



Following the audits a detailed proposition was put to the directors with expected costs and timescales.

Following the installs each site has high speed broadband with a Fortinet firewall. Switching and Wi-Fi services are done through Aruba devices and security is covered using Heimdal. Many of the old data points were installed piecemeal and so new cat 6 cable was installed to central cabinets with clear labelling. Desktop productivity is provided through subscription to MS 365. This standardisation has given stability to all sites and allows for easier on-site and remote support. 


“We have been using ICTn for IT and telecommunication services for several years. The support team is extremely professional, knowledgeable, helpful and supportive both on the phone and in person.  They have provided us with a secure networking solution to ensure our operations run smoothly and efficiently.

They are excellent at providing transparent solutions with sensible costs without the worry of lengthy contracts and ongoing expenses which many IT companies adopt.

I would recommend ICTn to any company who wants a no fuss professional IT solution.”
