The Club 142, as it is now stylised, is a members social club in Poynton, Cheshire. Working with very limited budget and with a high degree of autonomy, I was able to bring what is a 19/20th Century institution into the 21st Century with great benefit for the 1,000+ members, staff and guests.
I worked this position from September of 2008 until July 2016.
Starting very early in the IT Trade with The Club 142 allowed a degree of flexibility that would have been otherwise impossible in a rapidly growing business. I was the principal implementer, architect and supporter of many now mission critical systems.
These systems included a WPA2-Enterprise encrypted Wireless Network Infrastructure with RADIUS backend, integrated with bespoke membership and infrastructure management system, Door Access Control System with 2D Barcode scanning capability, Web Integrated Membership Management backend, Secure online portal with card payment processing functionality, PCI-Compliant payments network, SIP telephony architecture w/ Tier 1 and Tier 2 ITSP Interconnects, Dynamically programmable IVR and SMS Messaging Systems.
Whilst I have now left this company, I retain very many of their IT Support and System contracts. I have a lot of very close colleagues working here.
