Industrial Services Company Revamps Its Infrastructure and Desktop After Acquisitions
Headquartered in Perth and Brisbane, Australia, Cape Australia provides industrial multi-disciplinary services to the energy and natural resources sectors. In 2007, the Australian operations grew but became more complex when the company acquired three additional companies. With a disjointed technical environment, IT leadership sought a new strategy to improve the reliability of its systems, improve communications, and reduce employee frustration. The company partnered with Microsoft to help revamp its core infrastructure and desktop solutions with a platform of Microsoft technologies that includes Microsoft Office 2010, Microsoft 2010 server applications, and Windows 7 Enterprise. With a standard operating environment, Cape Australia can reduce IT administration and costs, lower travel costs with new online communication options, and provide more capabilities that benefit its employees.
