KMC-Services – migration to the Polcom’s cloud computing

Industry:logistics, transportation, storage
Key service:Cloud infrastructure (IaaS)

KMC-Service is a Polish logistic operator providing a comprehensive service of the supply chain. The company’s offer includes services within 6 areas: storage, warehouse services, Value Added Services, national and international freight forwarding, logistic advisory services and BTS warehouse construction services, and recently also e-commerce services. The company has been operating for over 17 years and it specializes in contractual logistics, i.e. designing and implementing tailor-made logistic solutions. In 2018, KMC-Services was awarded in the Gazele Biznesu contest.


Dynamic development of KMC-Services and extension of the scope of provided services contributed to the implementation of a few new warehouse applications that influence the functioning and organization of work of the whole enterprise.

Therefore, the it was necessary to create adequate IT infrastructure with efficient computational power. The investment costs necessary for the development and maintenance of the server room were high, that is why KMC-Services decided to use a cloud-based infrastructure model.


Cloud-based IT infrastructure significantly influences optimization of investment costs related to the maintenance of one’s own server room.

Polcom gave access to computational power which makes it possible to control the costs and change the balance point of investment financing to the infrastructure (change of CAPEX into OPEX). Thanks to that, KMC-Services incurs the cost for the actual use of resources, whereas the IT platform guarantees the company full scalability and flexibility. Reliability of IT environment guarantees security and continuity of operations of all administrative systems, which is frequently difficult to reach from the company’s infrastructure level.

Key results and benefits

Cost optimization

The company optimized the costs connected with the purchase of equipment and servicing of its own server room. KMC-Services incurs the costs related to the actual intake and use of IT environment resources depending on the current needs.

Scalability and flexibility of computational power

Dynamic changes that characterize the logistic industry enforce the implementation of appropriate IT systems together with efficient IT infrastructure which guarantees business continuity.

Increase in the level of data security

Polcom has international quality certificates which confirm that it meets the standards of information security management – ISO 27001, 27017 and 9001.


The fully functional IT platform offered by Polcom provides us with full business flexibility while adapting to our needs that change over time. It allowed us to optimize the costs which we would have to incur during further expansion and maintenance of our own server room.

We are also certain that our data are protected in a proper way, and the continuity of operations of our IT systems will be preserved. Technical support offered and ongoing contact with the Polcom’s team indicate highest diligence and attention paid to every aspect of the service.
