Client: Royal British Legion Industries


When it came to identifying, implementing, and supporting a future-proof IT solution, RBLI chose to partner with Sota. One of the nation’s most loved charities, required faster and more reliable connectivity for its head office, and in locations across the UK, and a significant uplift in server, storage, and backup capacity to accommodate current, and future, operational needs. RBLI benefited from a range of professional IT managed services provided by Sota.


RBLI (Royal British Legion Industries) is a national charity providing support to the armed forces community, and those disadvantaged by disability, a health condition or social welfare needs. From employment to housing and care, RBLI improves lives for those people every day.


As a fast growing national charity, RBLI’s existing IT platform and network infrastructure was proving inadequate, and the need for a future-proof solution was becoming more critical. With a massive increase in the volume of data, more remote users, and other operational needs, they required higher performance, high availability, connectivity, and an increase in compute and storage capacity to accommodate the growth. RBLI were looking for an IT partner which shared a people-centric approach, and had the expertise to deliver.


The successful business relationship between Sota and RBLI has evolved over the last ten years. In this time, Sota has been involved in virtually every aspect of RBLI’s IT platforms and infrastructure, from supplying a managed connectivity infrastructure, to providing a full business continuity solution. Since the first meeting, the charity placed its complete confidence in Sota’s professional and flexible approach, and appreciated the value of its market leading IT managed services. The Sota team worked closely with RBLI at every stage to ensure that successful outcomes were achieved in the agreed timescale, and on budget.


RBLI has benefitted from a Sota’s professional approach, and targeted IT managed services, with transformation across the workplace supporting over 260 users.
