Avanade, an IT consulting and services provider has announced to work with Antares Capital, a financing solutions provider, to develop and deploy a cloud-based digital workplace solution designed to foster collaboration and efficiency.
“We are delighted to be working with Antares Capital to help them increase collaboration, productivity and deliver at the speed expected from a truly digital workplace. By leveraging a cloud-first model, Antares Capital is ‘future-proofing’ its IT infrastructure to be scalable and flexible to meet the growing needs of the company,” said Ronald White, Regional Executive for the Central Region, Avanade.
The new managed services operating model claims to free up IT resources to focus on innovative projects that will drive growth, increase revenue and enhance customer satisfaction.
“As a standalone business that was divested from GE in August 2015, we had the opportunity to create a full cloud-based organization supported by managed services,” said Mary Cecola, Chief Information Officer, Antares Capital.
“Avanade’s depth of expertise in the Microsoft ecosystem, coupled with their knowledge of the financial services industry, helped us manage our day-to day IT services while building a technology-forward infrastructure. As a result, our IT professionals can spend more time on strategic initiatives, providing a strong and secure foundation for our business to grow,” Mary added.
The digital workplace solution leverages Microsoft Office 365 and Microsoft Azure and is aimed at empowering employees with tools including Skype for Business, Outlook, SharePoint, and OneDrive, all available on any device at any time and eliminating cumbersome accessibility touch points.
