Chapman Taylor Director Andy Hudson to speak at London Build 2019

Chapman Taylor Director Andy Hudson will be speaking about using SharePoint for managing AEC project information at the London Build 2019 conference on 27 November.

Andy will be joined by Liam Southwood, Customer Support and Services Director at Atvero, the project information management software company with which Chapman Taylor has been collaborating on developing an efficient, cloud-based document management system.

Andy and Liam will be talking about why Microsoft and SharePoint Online was selected as Chapman Taylor’s business platform – what the platform provided, what it didn’t provide and what extra was needed to support our business and project strategies.

In 2017, Chapman Taylor embarked on a top-down strategy to present a unified international brand, with a business goal of a fully connected and collaborative workforce able to design and deliver projects anywhere in the world.

Our existing IT and delivery platforms used on-premises servers, which restricted connectivity between our global studios and hampered efficient communication and collaboration. What was needed was a scalable and more flexible way of working, enabling the business to be agile, but without incurring huge costs to change.

A feasibility study was undertaken in mid-2018 with NittyGritty, our IT services provider, to explore how far SharePoint online could be configured to support Chapman Taylor’s project delivery requirements. Andy and Liam will be discussing the ways in which the SharePoint platform was adapted to support the dynamic document and information workflows necessary to deliver high-quality projects efficiently.
