Fujitsu to Implement Streamlined Balfour Beatty UK Messaging Platform

Fujitsu UK & Ireland

London, May 01, 2014

Following the partnership agreement last July between Balfour Beatty and Fujitsu to undertake a UK IT transformation project, Balfour Beatty has now selected Fujitsu to implement a collaborative messaging platform across its UK businesses.

The plan is to implement a single collaborative messaging platform to support 14,000 UK users, across approximately 900 sites. Fujitsu will support the implementation of the messaging platform using Microsoft Exchange 2013 to replace 14 existing email platforms and enable the use of Microsoft Lync as a real-time communication tool.

“When we decided to invest in improving and streamlining our messaging platforms, we looked to Fujitsu to partner us.” said Danny Reeves, CIO of Balfour Beatty’s Services Division. “Implementing this collaborative messaging platform will help our employees better engage with each other and our customers.”

Helen Lamb, Executive Director for Managed Infrastructure Services at Fujitsu UK & Ireland, commented: “As a global company, Fujitsu realises the importance of collaboration and communication. The objective for this project is to create an easier to manage and much more collaborative environment for Balfour Beatty’s employees. We believe that implementing the messaging platform will provide Balfour Beatty with the efficiency and enhanced productivity it desires. The continuation of the partnership is also a testament to our relationship with Balfour Beatty.”

Planning is currently underway for implementation to be carried out over the next six to twelve months.
