Working across the Public and Private sectors Montagu Evans encompasses advisory, commercial & agency, property management and planning, historic environment and townscape services creating inspiring places to live, work, communicate and connect. They care about legacy, partnerships and people. Advising clients with complex planning and development challenges.
The nature of their sector, the need to continually develop collaborative ways of working, and keep pace with demanding best practices, heavily rely on a resilient and innovative IT and Cyber Security foundation. This is how our partnership started.
Montagu Evans desired a partner that would act as an extension of their business, and they could build a long-term trusted relationship with.
When we first engaged with Montagu Evans, we prioritised building that relationship to truly understand their challenges. Having a clear picture of their business vision and what they wanted to achieve enabled us to present the right Managed Services portfolio and solutions. We needed to demonstrate we could support strengthening their operations and creating a secure and efficient working environment, with their people’s experience at the centre.
With the property industry being so prominent, Montagu Evans needed confidence that they could depend on a provider to bring all of their services together seamlessly so they could focus their attention on supporting their clients to achieve their goals.
SHARED FOCUS ON EXPERIENCE
We demonstrated how Montagu Evans could maximise investment in technology and gain added value for their people and clients in a complex market. From End User Support to Managed Cyber Security Operations, underpinned by our unique Experience Led Approach™ every business area is covered, providing multiple layers of support and peace of mind.
With the cyber landscape continually evolving and pressure ramping up for Montagu Evans, building a resilient on-premise and cloud-based infrastructure and evolving their cyber security operations was extremely important. We met their requirements by deploying the Acora Managed Security Operations Centre (SOC), an experienced team built over the years through strategic acquisitions and organically.
Acora’s focus on user experience was a crucial differentiator in the partner selection process. Together, we share the same passion that people drive the real value in their business.
ROAD MAPPING CLOUD-FIRST STRATEGY
As Montagu Evans continues to expand their business, they desire a clearly defined roadmap. The plan for 2023 was focused on developing the relationship, building trust and understanding their business needs. 2024 and beyond includes innovation road mapping, strategic planning and continuous improvement to meet the demands of their fast-paced market and growing needs.
The shared vision, centered around a cloud-first strategy, includes a diverse range of innovative projects that meet their requirements for a modern, agile, and secure way of working. Along with an evolutionary service offering, they need to maintain compliance and Cyber Essentials Plus to continue being a trusted provider for their clients.
