Be-IT Resourcing are leaders in IT recruitment, specialising in the sourcing of high calibre professionals for the rapidly growing digital technology sector. Due to rapid expansion, the company was opening a new office in located in Edinburgh, initially with four staff, but with an anticipated growth to over ten staff within a few months.
To support the new premises, the company required a cloud based office for staff, delivering a flexible, secure environment with support for anywhere, anytime, any device access to business critical information.
The key challenge was to deliver all hardware, software and business productivity tools while keeping capital expenditure and operational support costs to a minimum.
Solution – Microsoft Office 365
Bridgeall’s proposal included the supply and installation of a Windows 2012 Essentials server, laptops with Windows 8 Pro and a network printer, all connected via a wireless network.
Microsoft Office 365 was chosen with an E3 subscription plan including Exchange, SharePoint and Lync Online along with licences for Office 2013 professional.
Windows Intune was used to provide Endpoint Protection to the laptops, management of security updates and system patches, with ongoing support provided by Bridgeall’s in-house service desk both remotely and on-site as required. We also delivered a customised SharePoint Intranet site to manage all document storage and resource diaries.
Gareth Biggerstaff, Managing Director of Be-IT, said:
“My experience with Bridgeall has been superb. Right from the onset I knew they understood my requirements and were sympathetic to my small business cost pressures. There was no over selling of additional ‘bits and pieces’, just a direct analysis of my business needs based on which Bridgeall proposed an effective and flexible solution which was very competitively priced.
