Sydney, Nov 04, 2015 – VMtech is pleased to announce that Savills, a leading global real estate service provider, has selected VMtech as its consultant and managed services provider to drive Savills through the next-generation ICT infrastructure transformation in Australia and New Zealand.
Savills drives its superior client and agent engagement by focusing on adopting emerging technologies to strengthen business operations. In a closely partnered collaboration with VMtech, Savills has successfully transformed its network infrastructure to enhance application performance, resiliency, and breadth of security across its offices in Australia and New Zealand. VMtech has also successfully architected and implemented Savills active-active datacentre strategy to enhance the resilience of the Savills business.
With a heritage of innovation, Savills prides itself on being at the forefront of new technology and driving operational efficiencies for clients and staff. Under the leadership of Michael Bartlett, CIO, Savills Australia defined a technology road map which would transform the Savills IT platform to increase mobility, scalability and flexibility. With over 18 years of experience in transforming IT for large enterprises, Michael brought the insight required to future-proof the technology at Savills.
“As our staff become more geographically distributed, and with the plans to introduce new service offerings, core systems and collaboration tools, there was an underlying need to improve the speed and availability of our IT platform. Our initial focus was to improve the technology experience of our people and our valued clients. By focusing on service availability (active-active DC), new infrastructure (packet light / core switching, firewalls and end user computers) and drastically improved network speed (dark fibre / TPG) we were able to exceed the expectations of our business whilst providing the building blocks to support our future IT strategies”, said Michael.
“VMtech’s expertise and holistic approach to consulting ultimately lead to a network design perfectly aligned to our long term needs. As we moved into the implementation stage of the project what really stood out for me was the expertise of their technicians. Ultimately their ‘one team approach’ and strategic forethought lead to a successful transformation of our Infrastructure project, I would have no hesitations in recommending VMtech to my peers”, added Michael.
“As we move into 2016, Savills will continue to be in a unique position to deliver on the needs of our people and our clients. 2016 is shaping up to be a very exciting period for Savills and I would like to acknowledge VMtech on our journey”, said Michael.
“Through its innovative solutions, VMtech has been partnering with enterprises to transform their ICT infrastructure to help drive successful business outcomes. Our success in designing, implementing and managing secure datacentre and hybrid cloud environments allowed us to deliver the outcomes experienced by Savills throughout this project. The relationship started with a ‘foot in the door’ project for a security refresh, but our proactive stance in understanding their technology needs and subsequently proposing solutions to modernise their infrastructure led us to drive the network and datacentre transformation. We continue to partner with Savills as their managed services provider and very much look forward to assisting Savills remain competitive in their market through innovation in technology”, said Len Findlay, CEO, VMtech.
