AIM - Case Study

Leading insurance firm takes off with cloud-based solutions from Gather

Advent Insurance Management (AIM) was on the rise. With their business growing, and an office move on the cards, AIM needed an IT infrastructure that could be flexible, secure and keep pace with their growth.

BACKGROUND

The company started life in a shared office, and relied on shared IT systems for all its services. But following continued growth, and a proposed move to new premises, AIM needed to quickly build its own secure email platform, encrypted and compliant file storage, and phone system with call recording.

The solution needed to be completely secure, yet offer fast, reliable remote access to AIM’s dispersed workforce.

We are delighted with Gather as our technology partner.
They have proved themselves understanding of our requirements and responsive to our needs... and they are nice people to work with!

WHY DID AIM
COME TO US?

The company started life in a shared office, and relied on shared IT systems for all its services. But following continued growth, and a proposed move to new premises, AlM needed to quickly build its own secure email platform, encrypted and compliant file storage, and phone system with call recording. 

The solution needed to be completely secure, yet offer fast, reliable remote access to AlM's dispersed workforce. 

WHAT DID WE DO?

Working closely with the customer to understand their requirements, we designed a bespoke, entirely cloud-based strategy. Harnessing industry-leading technology from Microsoft, Dell, Dropbox and RingCentral, we delivered a complete solution that enabled a smooth separation from AIM’s existing services.

But for us it’s about more than delivering technical solutions - we want to deliver business benefits. Through implementing flexible, scalable systems, we were able to give AIM the agility to continue their growth. Outstanding disaster recovery and enterpirse-class security means work can continue anywhere, anytime, while a pay-as-you-go model gives a clear, per-head cost for increased efficiency.
