A subsidiary of the FTSE 100 company United Utilities, Vertex is an international business process outsourcer with offices in the UK, North America, Asia, and Europe. To combine high-quality service and cost-saving operational efficiencies, Vertex needed to retool its IT infrastructure for greater customer focus.

Challenges

  • Migrate data from multiple legacy systems to a new IT environment
  • Integrate disparate siloed systems for greater efficiency
  • Create single customer view accessible across the business
The need to deliver the highest levels of customer service in a regulated market makes the utilities sector extremely challenging. To succeed we needed to create and migrate information to an agile, integrated IT infrastructure across our entire customer base.
