Vail Williams

Vail Williams LLP is ranked in the top 30 UK real estate advisers offering acquisition, disposal, asset management and consultancy services to corporations, landlords, public sector clients, developers and investors. The firm has a network of 9 offices with over 150 staff. CCC has been working with Vail Williams for 14 years and over much of that time has been responsible for both the development and continuity of Vail William’s IT environment.

CCC has helped develop VW’s IT environment as the company has grown. We have been involved with Vail Williams from the first introduction of MS Windows PCs to user’s desks, through two major software upgrades (first NT and then Windows 2000 and XP) and a major Wide Area Network enhancement right up to the present day helping Vail Williams to migrate to a tier 4 hosted data centre environment and thin client infrastructure. Over the course of our relationship with Vail Williams, this involvement has been to provide user support, hardware support, systems design and implementation and technical consultancy. We have also provided the technical link and leadership for the development of a bespoke CRM (Customer Record Management) solution by a 3rd party supplier.

CCC has also conducted the design and development of a number of custom database solutions to fit Vail William’s business processes. These include an HR database holding personnel data, an asset management system to enable the company to keep track of their growing IT assets, a new business opportunity application to help them maximise income leads from their customer base, and a job register of ongoing work, built upon their bespoke CRM solution.

Ian Rudland, the CEO at Vail Williams LLP, offers the following comment:

‘CCC has been a trusted business partner of Vail Williams for many years enabling us to remain focused on our core activities without the distraction and costs often associated with building a central IT services department. In effect they have been our in house team whilst offering the flexibility to add appropriate resource as and when needed. CCC has provided us with a reliable range of IT services from consultancy and strategy advice to hands on practical delivery of networks and applications for many years.‘
