Preparing for investment
Scrutinising your business from an investor’s perspective means looking for the cracks beneath the surface. A robust IT strategy can make all the difference to securing backing and evolving your business to the next level. In the same way, investment offers a key opportunity to invest strategically in your business technology and support the future of your competitive advantage.
Driving new value with Acora
But the level of in-house expertise required is often a huge drain on the limited resources of mid-market businesses. If your infrastructure can’t support the rapid growth PE investment often triggers, if applications are no longer appropriate for your strategy, or if processes are inefficient and costly – outsourcing your IT to experts who understand your business is a way to realise the value of your investment and protect your competitive advantage as you grow.
Leading law firm Furley Page were looking to strategically update their systems before substantial financial investment. Their IT team felt strongly that moving into a virtual server environment was the best option for the business as it evolved, but difficult economic conditions meant that all decisions were being scrutinised at leadership level. They needed our help to build a compelling case for the value virtualisation would bring and communicate it from a clear, business-minded viewpoint.
We worked with Furley Page to provide:
- A non-intrusive, clear benefit analysis using our tried and tested Virtualisation Assessment, assessing current infrastructure and suitability for virtualisation.
- Accurate project cost projections and clear assessment of challenges.
- Objective technical recommendations.
Following our assessment, the leadership team at Furley Page decided the value of investment was clear and, taking advantage of our flexible payment options, moved into a new and scalable virtual environment.
