Our experience in providing test plans and test scripts allowed system and user acceptance testing to take place following implementation

Our tried and tested planning process engaged key business users and third-party penetration testers, who seamlessly followed the structure to validate access, control, security and functionality was aligned to the deliverables of the programme

Working in partnership with LPF stakeholders we utilised internal training platforms, workshops, Teams sessions and a series of literature to present users to the range of solutions, where training was required


Our partnership approach from the start meant that we were able to work closely with the LPF team to fully understand their business needs

Through short detailed workshops, we identified core operational requirements and convert them into practical solutions within the design

Our design approach details the platform outcomes in a very simple way, allowing business users and IT owners to understand


The selection of MS E3 & associated add-ons such as Advanced Threat Protection, PRTG, Websense and Fortigate for security and best value

Design stages included the low level design and implementation of telephony services through the use of Microsoft Teams powered by Service Board Controllers

By simplifying LPF’s needs our technical architects were able to provide solution designs that allowed the necessary integration of these services, handing configuration of the contact centre to the businesses in house experts, who are able to quickly and easily manage internally


The environment delivered to LPF has allowed them to continue to develop in line with technological advances, safe in the knowledge that it is future proof to remain agile in their business sector

LPF have gone on to integrate new finance systems, automation processes utilising security features and Single Sign on etc

LPF have also gone on to achieve both Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials plus for their estate, cementing their needs to provide compliance for financial authorities who govern them
