Our work with West Yorkshire FRS Highlighted by Microsoft

03 Jan 2011

Black Marble’s work with the West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service (FRS) on Microsoft SharePoint 2010 has been highlighted by Microsoft as a Case Study.

West Yorkshire FRS wanted to create a digital hub for the organisation to improve collaboration between teams and within departments and wanted an experienced partner to assist with the implementation. Drawing on our experience as a Microsoft Partner, with the Gold Standard in Portals and Collaboration, we carried out an initial health check on their existing system, adhering to Microsoft Best Practice standards. As a result of the consultation and follow-up work, West Yorkshire FRS decided to standardise on Microsoft technologies, continuing to draw on Black Marble’s skills, including a migration to SharePoint 2010.


"SharePoint is now the prime digital hub of the organisation and a business-critical system that is required to support our staff in their fire prevention and rescue work around the clock."

Katy Pinder, ICT Project Manager, West Yorkshire FRS
