With more than 30 years experience in the Australian property industry, FKP is one of Australia’s leading diversified property and investment groups.
Originally founded in Queensland, FKP has grown into a truly diverse group with over 650 staff and operations across the country. It has dedicated offices in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne and a ranking as an ASX top 200 performer.
FKP has an internal IT department with no shortage of work in supporting this large organisation. Recently they rolled out a new Standard Operating Environment to their office locations and other property assets owned by the organisation, such as a large number of retirement villages. The scale of this SOE rollout to around 800 computers presented a significant resourcing challenge for their IT Manager.
Dan called upon IT Leaders to supply additional resources to roll out the SOE to Brisbane, the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast locations. IT Leaders provided a number of engineers as per Mr Crawford’s requests. As we were involved with this project staging over a number of months, the IT Leaders technical staff assigned were also able to contribute on the fly to making the rollout a more efficient process.
Constant feedback from our staff about the efficiency of the SOE software & process allowed tweaks to be made to improve it. While an SOE design service from us was not requested, this care for our client and attention to detail directly lead to a more efficent and lower cost rollout across the country.
FKP has found that getting IT Leaders to assist with projects has allowed them to produce faster and more accurate results.
