Some of our Projects
Great Ormond Street Hospital - Collaboration & Mobility
Block’s relationship with GOSH has been built upon a sound level of trust and a series of successful projects. Through a consultative approach and methodical understanding of GOSH operate, including having technicians attend in-theatre operations to fully comprehend how visual and collaborative processes could enhance the operation process, Block were able to quickly design and implement a robust solution that have staff access to a collaboration environment that enabled them to interact, watch (both in real-time and on-demand), upload, review and share communications securely and quickly. The solution involved utilising Cisco’s latest collaboration tools including their TelePresence and Show & Share platforms, further expanding upon the existing Cisco communications infrastructure.
End to end IT & Managed Service, Kent Institute of Medicine & Surgery
Based on a sound level of trust, experience and know-how, KIMS engaged with Block to deliver a complex end-to-end solution based on a hybrid IT approach combining on and off-premise components, skills and services. Starting with an infrastructure built around fixed and wireless architectures, a robust data centre and application platform was established across the on-site assets and off site backup. This was then overlaid with strong security, virtualised desktop, full collaboration and finally wrapped with a round the clock managed service provision.
