With over hundreds of endpoints to manage, the financial recruiter sought a solution to provide the most efficient IT infrastructure management and support
Goodman Masson is one of UK’s leading financial recruiters, with over 150 workers across both London and Dusseldorf. Goodman Masson had to maintain a large number of computers, laptops, tablets, surface devices and servers with no method of patching machines, upgrading systems, or installing fixes from Microsoft. Having briefly considered internal enterprise solutions, the organization instead turned to 3Gi to overhaul its IT infrastructure, with a view to streamlining management operations, reducing costs and providing a better service to its staff.
“Before taking on 3Gi and baramundi, we were suffering from slow desktops, lengthy patching processes and complicated deployment,” noted Luke Kibble, second line IT support at Goodman Masson. “We turned to 3Gi, our existing infrastructure consultant, and the advice was to test baramundi for a month ahead of implementing a year ago. The decision to choose baramundi’s Management Suite ended up saving us both time and effort by giving us better visibility and control over the network, regardless of the device build, level of patching or current location. Now we can push out all software, even down to mobile phones.”
3Gi recommended a number of components from the baramundi Management Suite to provide the level of automation needed to meet the highest security standards, and create an ideal environment for IT administrators to manage the entire landscape from a single, centralised location. The new support allows Goodman Masson to deploy devices to new employees without experiencing onboarding issues and inefficiencies, as well as markedly improving staff performance.
“We’re very pleased to be a central component of Goodman Masson’s IT infrastructure, helping to provide recruiters in the UK and Germany with a reliable and secure endpoint management solution,” said Sean Herbert, Country Manager, baramundi Software UK. “By being able to manage and oversee the entire business’ IT estate, administrators can now effectively address issues as they arise, manage application vulnerabilities and make savings by identifying third party licenses that are going unused. We’re thrilled to continue to be one of 3Gi’s trusted partners, and look forward to working together going forward.”
“We have worked with Goodman Masson for five years and knew that speed and security were the primary drivers behind this overhaul,” commented Jonathan Collins, Associate Director, at 3Gi. “In addition, easy deployment, better oversight and ensuring IT governance were of great importance. Through baramundi, Goodman Masson can quickly and simply update software on an ongoing basis.”
