As we move swiftly into the second half of 2022, we wanted to reflect on the changes, projects, and client success stories we’ve seen so far at the 848 Group this year. Technology is integral to modern business, and it’s exciting to watch our customers grow, evolve, and innovate using cloud-first IT.
Enabling Real Business Change
Modern IT facilitates meaningful connectivity, innovation, and transformation. Our mission builds on this, aiming to enable positive outcomes and change with cloud-first IT in organisations across the UK. Our team work hard to deliver the valuable IT services and solutions that support businesses in reaching their goals. We’re proud to work with a diverse range of clients of all sizes, industries, and sectors.
From window cleaning to clean energy, education to aerospace, we’re helping clients focus on, create, and achieve amazing things. Every business we work with matters. As an independently owned business, we value every client, big and small.
Supporting a Government-Backed Green Energy Development
Our team is working on a number of exciting projects at the moment, supporting clients in delivering Net Zero goals and industry-specific innovation.
848 is currently delivering a digital transformation programme for a ground-breaking green energy development. The client is developing a clean energy solution built on nuclear technology to address the urgent global need for low carbon energy. Our team is playing a major role in the project; designing, building, and providing the IT services and cloud-first infrastructure that underpins the development. We are proud to support this client in creating a solution to deliver sustainable, scalable, and affordable nuclear power across the globe.
Our team are also delivering a large-scale Microsoft migration to a multi-national client operating in the securities finance industry. The migration away from Google and to Microsoft 365 includes the design, build and implementation of a new modern workspace environment that will enable secure remote access and collaboration for the 13,000+ end users.
Always Evolving Services
To address evolving client demands and environments, the team are constantly making changes to enhance the deliverables and outcomes for those utilising our managed IT support services. Rory Kilpatrick is moving across to lead IT service development in the managed services practice, working in collaboration with Head of Managed Services, Fraser Scott.
Fraser has been heading up managed services at 848 for nearly 3 years, while Rory joined in 848 in March this year to lead the implementation of our ServiceNow platform and practice. Prior to this, he was the Head of Technology and Innovation at Ricoh Europe.
Rory has brought this experience to 848 to add value to our clients and ensure services are meeting their changing needs. With ServiceNow set up and running, we’re delivering valuable support services to thousands of users across the UK and beyond, underpinned by the leading ITSM platform.
We’re delighted to expand our partnerships to Dubai, as we recently announced our new partnership with Insight Plum. This company is a specialist provider of procurement technology, services, and skills, with a global HQ in Dubai Silicon Oasis. As a Microsoft Gold Partner, 848 will be working with Insight Plum to deliver valuable cloud services and licenses to clients in Dubai and the rest of the UAE, extending our ability toad value to clients in new ways across the globe.
Our list of partnerships is always evolving as we work hard to meet the changing needs and demands of clients. Towards the end of last year, we announced enhanced relationships with the likes of ServiceNow, AWS, and more. You can learn more about our partners here.
An Independent IT Partner
Whether your organisations operates in clean energy or cleaning services, finance or further education, we’re here to help. With over a decade of experience, the 848 Group is a one of the largest independently owned IT services and solutions partners in Staffordshire and the West Midlands. Why should it matter to you that we’re an independent business? Because our owners set up 848 with a passion for adding value through IT, and they’re still working with that same passion today.
When you choose us, you work with an IT partner that won’t treat you as a just a number. Our independence gives us the agility to move quickly, and helps us develop a leading team of IT professionals that are passionate about what they do. We work with client goals at the heart of every project, and take the time to dig deep into what you want to achieve. Our services are designed to evolve and grow with you, providing maximum value and flexibility.
