The largest Chamber of Commerce in the UK with over 5000 members
“IT Lab has provided us with a future-proof, scalable IT platform that we have complete control over, without the need to rely on a third party to carry out support-related change requests.”
GMCC is the UK’s largest Chamber of Commerce, serving over 5,000 members and processing enormous amounts of data on a daily basis.
With its range of sector-based membership services and vast range of networking opportunities, the Chamber provides first-class business support to North West businesses in a range of diverse sectors and of various sizes.
As a rapidly growing, extremely modern and 360-degree communications organisation, GMCC sees IT as a commercial differentiator and a platform, which is absolutely integral to ensuring it stays ahead of its client base, to provide the requisite service they need.
Following a positive tender process and successful partnerships on previous projects, IT Lab was the strategic choice to design, project manage and implement a carefully thought-out solution to support GMCC. In particular, IT Lab’s consultative position enabled a full review and interrogation all of the options available, allowing GMCC to have complete autonomy over the system put in place.
The final decision was to implement a new hybrid platform which made the best of both on premise and cloud-based systems. This solution provided the most secure and robust solution towards protecting GMCC’s data.
As a strategic partner, IT Lab relieved GMCC of a huge amount of pressure, overseeing every aspect of the project which included:
The key functionality implemented by IT Lab included Microsoft Dynamics GP and CRM, Office 365, Citrix XenApp, Skype for Business and SharePoint, which through its innate understanding of GMCC’s organisation, IT Lab identified as the technology and applications best-suited to its needs.
