- Beyond recommended the restructure of the separate technology divisions into an integrated technology services team and the consolidation of other IT responsibilities into this team.
- Through the use of advanced remote management tools, appropriate processes and an organisational structure more closely aligned to business requirements (rather than legacy reporting lines) the work teams were streamlined to deliver improved SLA’s more efficiently.
- The resulting reduction in workforce requirements, investments in new generation technology and targeted vendor negotiation delivered an immediately achievable ongoing cost savings of 25%, increasing to 30% of the previous IT opex budget in the medium term.
