Qcom was invited to propose for the design, deployment and on-going management of a brand-new IT and communications environment for a start-up financial services company.
This project presented a few challenges as the client had not yet secured premises, so some aspects of the low-level design had to wait until the offices were open.
Another challenge we faced was having to understand and integrate with a few different finance applications as these were critical to the daily operations of the business. We wanted to achieve an environment that would allow Hurley to work from anywhere they wanted in a secure and efficient way.
Hurley wanted both Windows and Mac hardware to work seamlessly on the same network. Given that they handled sensitive client information and were operating in a regulated industry, security was of utmost importance. We had to ensure that security did not hinder their users’ productivity but still kept their data safe.
Streym designed, supplied and deployed a network, server environment, remote access solution, in-house telephony system, conferencing facilities, printers, user desktop & laptops, 100Mb leased lines, and cabling for the entire office.
The end result was an IT environment that was high performance, secure, provided the users with flexibility and highly resilient. The solution was also designed to scale as the plan was for Hurley to open additional sites within 24 months.
Streym provided Hurley with on-going management of the entire environment and support for all the users. Streym also liaised with all 3rd party vendors to ensure that any issues were resolved.
In the seven years that Streym have been working with Hurley, they have gone on to open a further two offices. The IT has seamlessly accommodated their growth and been an integral part of their success. The service that Streym provides Hurley represents a saving of approximately 70% over having to employ in house staff to provide the same level of support. Streym is considered Hurley’s trusted technology partner.
