"The CodeBlue promise is to help clients reduce overall IT costs while concurrently improving service and support levels - all for a fixed monthly cost, no matter what."
Glidepath, a global leader in airport baggage and cargo handling systems, required a solution which would increase flexibility and allow external access to emails, all while saving the company money. Microsoft’s Business Productivity Online Service was implemented, which has led to significant cost savings for the company. In addition to this, with the intranet running on a hosted SharePoint system, Glidepath has virtual team collaboration, with employees able to access business information from anywhere, at any time, on any device.
With disparate systems in the different offices around the world, and a lack of external access to data and emails, Glidepath did not have an optimal level of collaboration. The company required a solution that would enable them to consolidate and centralize its business processes, while also saving money and freeing up IT staff so they could concentrate on more strategic projects.
The obvious choice for Glidepath was to move to a cloud-based solution to house all of its data, making is easier for the different offices around the world to access the same information more easily, and for staff to access emails outside of the office environment.
Glidepath chose to work with CodeBlue, a Microsoft Gold Certified partner, who recommended a Microsoft Business Productivity Online Services (BPOS) solution, which would enable greater flexibility and connectivity within the company.

"Rollout went to plan and the products are easy to use, so we saw instant benefits. Our IT team are now able to concentrate on strategic projects rather than spending most of their time dealing with simple queries and maintaining the servers, and with the intranet now on a hosted SharePoint system we have virtual team collaboration, and employees can access the information from anywhere, not just in the office. With everything centralized in one location, all of our offices are able to retrieve and view the same information."
