Case study



Beavis Morgan LLP is a forward thinking group of accountancy and tax professionals. Having created Beavis Morgan after an MBO from Vantis they wanted to bring their computer systems into the 21st century. The new management team wanted to use the latest technology to support an ambitious growth strategy and that included moving to ‘cloud’ computing to facilitate scalable expansion. Working with managed service provider, Vistanda, they transitioned their full range of IT systems within a challenging deadline of six months.

The Vistanda approach

The new Vistanda services platform delivers cost effective IT systems and support on a robust platform with the scope to support future business growth. The flexibility offered by the Vistanda model is essential for Beavis Morgan’s business growth plans as it can be rapidly adapted to the changing business and technological environment.

The transition team performed a detailed requirements analysis and assessed the client’s business strategy and operating processes in order to design a systems architecture relevant to their current and anticipated needs. The full range of business critical applications was thoroughly tested, with user feedback incorporated into the final migration plans.

Within 2 months, the whole business system had been transitioned to the Vistanda hosted environment, with a complete rollout across the organisation.

Key benefits of using Vistanda:

  • interdepartmental collaboration
  • visibility across departments
  • automated processes
  • improving cashflow
  • improving customer service
  • better informed decisions
  • security
  • scalability
  • freedom to progress other projects

""The cloud gives us a greater speed of transition of data and improved efficiency across the business. The way the database and data sets are managed saves us time and money in the cost of data management, processing and handling."

Nigel Haigh, Managing Partner, Beavis Morgan.
