It was beers all round at Datasharp when it scooped a deal to overhaul St. Austell Brewery's comms infrastructure.
The brewery is one of the largest employers in the south west and its plans for growth, which include a relocation, could only be realised following an upgrade of its comms systems by existing supplier Datasharp.
"With St. Austell Brewery being a multi-site operation it meant that the organisation required a range of technologies to be incorporated into its new communications and collaborations solutions," stated Allan Williams, Technical Director at Datasharp.
The company opted for Unify's OpenScape Business solution which enables collaboration and seamless engagement across multiple locations.
Williams added: "One of the biggest challenges in a project of this scale is continuity. So we worked closely with the internal stakeholders at St. Austell throughout the entire project and, specifically, chose a phased approach.
"This eased minds, as the entire switchover caused minimal disruption and no lost business. Training was also carried out before and after the change, ensuring that employees had a solid foundation on the new software and hardware, as well as being able to raise any issues and find solutions.
"All these actions ensured that, from start to finish, the entire project was a success."
