GreenPages, a leading systems integrator and cloud services company, has selected Huddle’s cloud-based system to boost staff productivity across its own virtualization, cloud consulting and integration business. Using Huddle, GreenPages is maximizing the benefits of flexible working in the cloud and BYOD schemes by providing staff, clients and partners with an online portal to access, share and work together on content.
Being cloud-based, Huddle allows GreenPages staff to access content inside or outside of the office, via their device of choice. Huddle provides apps for smartphones and tablets, meaning staff can make the most of the usually unproductive time spent travelling in between meetings or commuting to work. Huddle’s intuitive interface also provides an easy to use platform that does not require additional IT support to get workspaces up and running.
Now that all staff have access to Huddle, internal teams and external partners and customers working together on different projects can all access the required information. This ensures everyone has full transparency of document versions and updates. Instead of wasting valuable time having meetings or calls to go over notes, staff can collaborate online, using Huddle’s discussion and comment feature to provide feedback on content.
GreenPages had previously relied on a legacy ICT system but found it time-consuming to administer and staff were unable to set up workspaces without support from the IT team. Most importantly, the lack of access for external organisations created a big barrier when it came to collaborating on key projects.
“When speaking to each department we found that a collaboration tool was a necessity for our teams to work together. It wasn’t just a content repository we needed but a platform where we could comment and work effectively on content as well,” said Matt Mock, Information Technology Manager, GreenPages. “We have a BYOD policy here and Huddle makes this so easy to manage as staff don’t require a VPN to access their content and the audit trail provides peace of mind for every single document.”
“It’s all about getting work done, rather than just talking about it,” said Alastair Mitchell, CEO and co-founder, Huddle. “Now staff at GreenPages can continue to collaborate outside of face-to-face meetings, resulting in a much more productive workforce. According to analyst house Forrester, virtual workers are expected to comprise 43 per cent of the workforce in the U.S. by 2016. As Huddle is cloud-based, GreenPages has an online platform ready to accommodate this growth and provide access to key content for its expanding workforce.”
