LONDON, February 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Due to the greater effectiveness we are able to realise through our outsourcing partnership with BIS, the NHS Confederation has been able to deliver a range of strategic projects on time and on budget, says Janice Miles, COO, NHS Confederation.

I have a small team that supports a large number of users across multiple sites in the UK and Europe. I also need that resource to deliver multiple strategic projects. Thankfully, BIS provides the day-to-day management of our server and network infrastructure, allowing us to focus on the value adding activities required to drive the organisation forward, said Rob Dobell, Head of IMT. I am now able to manage my team and budgets more effectively, thus speeding up delivery and allowing us to better service our NHS Trusts, he continued.

Another massive benefit comes from BIS' 24x7 Management. This extended the support SLA I can offer the organisation, without an increase in my IT headcount. We have also been able to take advantage of the skills and experience of BIS' engineering team and have come to trust and depend upon them for advice and guidance on IT matters, reflected Mr Dobell.

The BIS/NHS relationship has grown over several years. We see ourselves as an extension of the Confederation's IT department rather than just another supplier; a feeling shared by Rob and his team, stated Matt Moore, Account Manager, BIS.
