Global Hedge Fund Managers
Supporting a growing, global organisation
To support its growing business in the UK, a Global Hedge Fund Management Company was looking to expand its London offices. The Client needed to create a consistent user experience across its offices globally so that users can log-in with the same credentials anywhere in the world. Having recently engaged PTS to provide an independent review of its AV systems, having worked with PTS in New York and Tokyo, the Client appointed PTS as a safe-pair-of-hands to manage the fit out of the new floor.
With a ten-week deadline, the project required tight coordination with the architects and project team. PTS carefully planned the project approach, recognising long-lead items to ensure that the selected vendors could deliver the solutions that the Client required, including; Construction, IT Networks, Audio Visual and Security, Desk-fittings and Electrical hardware.
The new office space will enable the Client to grow as a business and the consistency across each of its offices in terms of IT and AV systems ensure that staff can quickly settle into the new space. The company now receives ongoing support from PTS Managed Services, meaning the Client can call support for all the above services 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, helping the business to focus on its core activities, generating revenue and expanding further.
• The Client benefits from a fresh, technologically advanced space that supports the needs of the business
• By paying close attention to the needs of the staff, employees can now focus on their day job as they don’t need to worry about the technology or IT systems not working
• The systems installed are in line with the Client’s global standards, creating a consistent user experience across each of its office spaces. Users visiting from over-seas offices needn’t worry about being unfamiliar with the technology.
• PTS was able to coordinate and complete the project on time and under budget. The Hedge Fund Management Company has since retained PTS to refurbish systems within the older part of its London Office.
• On-going, 24 hour IT support from PTS Managed Services will ensure the business always has the expertise and solutions required to minimise disruption and ensure the business can continue generating revenue
