Queen Elizabeth’s Foundation step into the future with IDE Group

Queen Elizabeth’s Foundation (QEF) is a leading disability charity for people with physical and learning disabilities or acquired brain injuries, helping them gain new skills and increase independence for life. With residents, staff and visitors to QEF wanting to use today’s modern technology, the IT infrastructure across its sites simply was not up to the job. QEF chose IDE Group to bring the charity up to speed with the latest tech infrastructure and to modernise its ICT services.

Challenge

Solution

Continual improvement

QEF needed to jump back on the tech train and make up for lost time. But as a charity it needed to keep costs down. IDE Group was chosen for its mid-size suitability, value and range of solutions and upon an independent internal audit into IT procurement, was confirmed as ‘the right solution at the right time’.

“We caught up ten years in two. Young people expect to be able to use our services on their tablets and phones from the moment they walk in the door. As do our trustees. So it was a major plus be able to create this faster, more modern environment. There were challenges, but IDE Group understood them and were able to adapt their original plans to meet them. We’ve ditched the tapes, knowing our data is now continually backed up remotely with SAM and our new helpdesk function means all our staff are benefitting from using IT that’s up to the job. Our Health and Safety procedures – and others – can now be accessed from one place, helping us become more seamless and to easily access and roll out information. In the end, both staff and our young people are better networked together.”
