West Yorkshire FRS wanted to create a digital hub for the organisation to improve collaboration between teams and within departments and wanted an experienced partner to assist with the implementation. Drawing on our experience as a Microsoft Partner, with the Gold Standard in Portals and Collaboration, we carried out an initial health check on their existing system, adhering to Microsoft Best Practice standards. As a result of the consultation and follow-up work, West Yorkshire FRS decided to standardise on Microsoft technologies, continuing to draw on Black Marble’s skills, including a migration to SharePoint 2010.
Black Marble’s work with the West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service (FRS) on Microsoft SharePoint 2010 has been highlighted by Microsoft as a Case Study.
SharePoint is now the prime digital hub of the organisation and a business-critical system that is required to support our staff in their fire prevention and rescue work around the clock.Katy Pinder, ICT Project Manager, West Yorkshire FRS.
