WHAT SMARTER IT DOES FOR PEOPLE
ZHERO KNOWS THAT TIME IS MONEY. SPEEDY IT IS SMART FOR YOUR BUSINESS.
WeWork recently acquired a company that was responsible for the phase one of all project management, design, and architecture of We Work office’s in the UK. Based on exceptional successful rollout of phase one We Work decided to setup the new company up as a dedicated task force for phase two in UK.
Currently located at the largest WeWork on the planet, its next phase is to execute rollout at more than 30 locations. Following the buyout, WeWork discovered that it had acquired a sought-after company that did not have a supporting IT infrastructure.
WeWork designs and builds physical and virtual shared spaces and offers office services for entrepreneurs and companies. Located in 77 cities in 23 countries, the brand, with its 250,000 strong membership, seems on a mission to conquer the workplace.
THE IT CHALLENGE
A company bought out by WeWork did not possess an IT infrastructure for the new task force that would be relocated into a serviced WeWork office. The agile workforce needed to be accommodated at the lowest possible cost with the highest level of security and using a minimal technology footprint. Individuals also needed rapid access to design files on the AutoCAD and Adobe Creative Cloud platforms. Moreover, the company needed a smart way of hosting bespoke contract management and project management applications.
WHAT ZHERO DID
This is how Zhero applied smarter technology to deliver dynamic IT solutions for the company: Zhero designed a unique and speedy serverless IT infrastructure and implemented a bespoke hybrid cloud solution for data storage. The systems are highly scalable with a low-cost per user and modelled on Zhero’s Cloud infrastructure.
Zhero also installed virtual desktops, thereby enabling system integration and advance reporting to key staff. Employees had full access to the Zhero Cloud Software as a Service application which was modelled on Microsoft SQL infrastructure. WeWork has fully integrated 24/7 IT security and systems monitoring, complete with tried and tested remote working capability.
HOW ZHERO HELPED
Zhero’s cloud infrastructure provides the company with scalable and speedy data storage. Also, the cloud is future-proofed using a minimal CAPEX outlay. Zhero provides resilient and secure IT by applying a real-time ‘Cyber Essentials’ solution containing a unique set of security tools. The company has secure and automated data backups at a remote UK-based facility.
