Domino's, the world's largest pizza delivery firm, announced the completion of the switchover as it reported that online sales had rocketed 43% in the last year, driving a £44 million pre-tax profit.

Online and mobile sales channels are now a key route to market for Domino's, which has said it depends on high IT uptime levels.

Lance Batchelor, Domino's chief executive, said in a statement to investors that the company had "successfully completed a wholesale move of our critical IT systems" to a hosted setup.

"This gives us added security, greater scalability and frees up the internal team to focus on developing initiatives like our new apps and further ways to leverage greater online sales and customer engagement."
