The Challenge:

Impressed by razorblue’s unique, bespoke approach to IT solutions, Gale and Phillipson appointed razorblue as their IT provider many years ago and have trusted them to look after all of their IT and communications needs ever since.

During this time Gale and Phillipson have grown and acquired numerous companies. All users from these companies needed to be integrated into Gale and Phillipson’s network, this process was complex and could potentially have lead to a lot of business downtime.

Any proposed solutions needed to take into account strict confidentiality and FCA compliance requirements to protect Gale & Phillipson’s data.

Client Profile:

Gale and Phillipson is an independent whole-of-market financial planning and investment firm with a long history of providing financial planning and investment management solutions to personal, corporate and trustee clients.

  • FCA regulated
  • 100+ users
  • 8 Office Locations

The Solution:

When each of the new companies were acquired razorblue connected them to their MPLS WAN in order to standardise their approach to technology, migrate their data to the cloud and replace all old laptops and desktop with new Gale and Phillipson equipment. razorblue wanted to ensure as little downtime as possible, therefore all this work was carried out overnight or over a weekend so Gale and Phillipson could still operate during their usual hours.

“We have always been extremely impressed with razorblue’s unique approach and understanding of our business.”

The Result:

Gale and Phillipson are full-service clients of razorblue. Their 100+ employees across 8 offices are all supported by razorblue’s Managed IT service and are connected through MPLS WAN and a cloud platform hosted by razorblue.

All companies acquired by Gale and Phillipson were fully on-boarded and now operate in a standardised way, with no downtime involved in the migration process.
