The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) was undergoing a large digital transformation programme across their entire organisation. As part of this they had already rolled out Skype for Business, Outlook, OneDrive and were in the process of rolling out Windows 10. ACCA asked Bridgeall to assist them with the introduction and rollout of SharePoint, Teams, Power Platform and some of the wider Office 365 workloads. In addition, they were also looking to set up an operating model for delivery of changes and for this to encompass upskilling of their existing IT staff.
As part of an ongoing strategy to migrate to cloud-based services, The Security Industry Authority planned a move to the Microsoft 365 platform for a number of its ICT services. This had to be completed with minimal disruption to the SIA whilst retaining all existing functionality and adopting new services where appropriate. Bridgeall were selected as the implementation partner to deliver the migration to M365 enabling the SIA to drive internal user adoption of O365, email, collaboration and productivity tools within the organisation.
Link Group, one of Bridgeall’s long standing customers, were selected by Welso Housing Management to be the preferred partner for the transfer of all homes and services. This meant that Link Group had two separate IT infrastructures that they were looking to merge to support greater collaboration and integration of the new business. Bridgeall were invited to work with Link and Weslo IT teams to assist the transition and Office 365 tenant migration works to complete the Weslo technical integration.
Bridgeall implemented Office 365 for email and and migrate all file content from the on-premise shared drives into SharePoint Online in a structured manner. Consequently all versions of Office applications were upgraded and compliance ensured with Microsoft licensing.
Bridgeall were engaged to design and deliver a SharePoint Online Intranet with the key aim of driving collaboration within the organisation.
The subsequent site was designed to fit with Tennent’s core corporate branding and included multiple feeds from social media and Google as well as feeds internally from Yammer.
Bridgeall worked in partnership with SIA to migrate them to Microsoft 365. Bridgeall migrated all services to Microsoft 365 with minimum disruption to SIA.
Building on the successful completion of other Modern Intranet Projects with a range of clients across diverse industries, and working in close collaboration with Scottish Ballet’s internal management team, Bridgeall quickly delivered these improvements using the Microsoft Modern SharePoint framework. The project rationalised a number of key business processes bringing important content and information into one place supported by a bright modern theme.
On-time and within budget, Bridgeall successfully delivered a secure governance management solution built using SharePoint Online. With direct links to their existing project information management solution, the streamlined approvals and authorisation process delivered a single source of the truth and tracked accountability. The SharePoint solution simplified the document governance and approval workflow ensuring that forms being used for each project are the latest authorised versions.
McCallister Litho Group (MLG) is a dynamic print services and fulfilment company based in Glasgow.
MLG approached Bridgeall with an ageing group of servers and out of date business applications that required overhaul. They were also concerned about their ability to recover from a disaster should a major IT failure occur. Bridgeall produced a detailed options report providing several solutions with varying levels of cost. Key was the introduction of Cloud Services in Azure and Office 365 delivering significant improvements to the Business Continuity Plan.
The final solution consisted of a hybrid network of on premise and cloud based virtualised Windows Servers combined with Office 365, backed by a fully managed IT support contract covering business hours and 24/7 system monitoring.
