Central Football ups their game with Office 365 and SharePoint Digital Transformation.
When you’re a lean organisation serving over 14,000 stakeholders across five regions, your communication and collaboration need to be good. And when you’re a sports organisation, in sports-mad New Zealand, it’d better be fast and efficient because fans don’t like waiting. The governing body for football in the Hawkes Bay, Gisborne, Manawatu, Wanganui and Taranaki regions, Central Football’s 19 staff are responsible for local growth and developing the game through improving systems, enhancing communication with members, and being more accountable to football being developed rather than simply administered.
With a clear understanding of Central Football challenges, Yorb –put in place a roadmap aligned to Central Football’s overall strategic plan. “We discussed their strategic plans and what they were trying to do, including in growing the game, and gave them a helicopter view of how things could be,” says Yorb client manager Chris Shakeshaft. Yorb’s philosophy is to help businesses see technology as a business enabler. “Central Football were willing to share and trust us to align their technology with their business.”
The roadmap included a move to Office 365, migrating email and files to the cloud, upgrading workstations and decommissioning existing servers - a solution which would provide a shared environment anyone could access from anywhere, anytime and on any device
