Abellio operates public transport contracts in Europe, whilst working in partnership every day to consistently exceed passengers’ and stakeholders’ expectations.
Abellio had a BPOS implementation that was not quite meeting their needs. They had spoken to Black Marble on several occasions about the potential of Office 365, and finally they moved forward with their implementation with Black Marble’s assistance. As a European company, with multiple offices, Office 365 works in their favour- none of their offices are of a size that can support the infrastructure required to host SharePoint on-premises.
In addition, due to the nature of their business, they can on-board a franchise at short notice, it might last for 2 years, and be unattached again. So the Software as a Software platform works great for them.
