Ore Valley provides low-cost rented accommodation for individuals and families across Fife, including 650 homes and additional retail units and also supports various social enterprises and community initiatives.

With a wide variety of properties across a large geographical area, access to accurate information was key for their office and field based teams as was a dependable email solution, available on any device and in any location.

True to one of their core values of being “proactive and innovative” the leadership team were keen to move towards the Cloud to discover new and better ways of working. Having considered various options and Partners, Google’s G Suite seemed the perfect solution and Leeds based Refractiv was chosen to help with the transition.

G Suite enables new and better ways of working, staff are able to manage their time and appointments effectively, information is easily accessed and always up to date and G Suite has already provided time and cost savings and working efficiencies for the Ore Valley team.

With advice and consultancy support from Google Cloud Partner Refractiv, Ore Valley had the confidence to go ahead with the G Suite adoption. The migration was smooth and Refractiv were onsite for the “go-live”, delivering training and helping team members with any queries.

G Suite has gone beyond my expectations and is already improving the way we work as a team. With support from Refractiv, the transition was smooth and the improved communication and collaboration across the business is helping us to deliver a better service to our tenants and to the wider community
