Background: What were Berry Place’s Challenges?
Berry Place provides specialist design and manufacturing services to leading UK creative agencies, retailers and global brands, developing their concepts into three-dimensional solutions of exceptional quality.
Their variety of specialist skills and understanding of production and manufacturing constraints means that they need to be able to quickly bring ideas to reality, enabling their clients to make informed decisions for the development, testing and marketing of their products.
Additionally, Berry Place use the latest CAD Software and cutting-edge technology to bring client’s concepts to life in both 2D and 3D, and require IT Equipment with enough processing power for changing points of view, making hidden line drawings, rendering the model, and more.
However, they needed a bespoke solution for their communication processes.
Our Approach: Creating A Resilient And Effective IT Environment
247 IT Services were engaged by Berry Place as a trusted advisor to undertake a business transformation project to boost productivity by streamlining communications, file storage and data management using Office 365 and SharePoint.
For Berry Place, Office 365 provided them with a digital workspace with more powerful tools, access from anywhere, easier and safe ways to share important documents and information throughout the whole organisation and to external clients. Ultimately, Office 365 has allowed employees to focus on what matters: their team, specialist design and manufacturing services and, most important of all, their customers.
The Result: Improved Digital Collaboration
247 IT Services implemented and configured Microsoft SharePoint Online as their new cloud-based collaboration and document management platform. This allowed Berry Place to decommission their outdated file server and move to a more secure storage platform that offers enhanced security.
Additionally, 247 IT Services designed and installed custom-built computer hardware with the necessary processing capabilities and resilience to keep up with the always-increasing demands of the design services industry. This puts Berry Place in prime position to bring any 3D concept requirement to life, in a timeframe that benefits the client.
