Case Studies

Group IT function rationalisation

Integration of IT function across three companies providing 24x7 business critical data entry and transmission services to a single “Centre of excellence”.

Initial project was to review business operations within subsidiary company and prepare business case for support or termination of the current portfolio of products. Shareholder choice was for company restructure to concentrate on core business products which supported the shareholder operations directly and withdraw from other operations. Project was then expanded to a review of group-wide IT operations and the potential to achieve significant profit increase through integration across three companies within the group.
