"Capable partner for a managed services IT operation using Azure and Office 365"

Marché is a global and innovative company in the gastronomy sector with roots in Switzerland and an independent business unit of the Mövenpick Group. We have over 180 restaurants and about 2800 employees in 11 countries in Europe, North America and Asia. Last year, in 2018, Marché was facing the challenge of having to safeguard the current international IT operations within ¾ of a year. To do so, we were looking for an experienced partner that would competently stand by our side from tendering the services all the way to the operational handover to a service provider. We found exactly that partner in the 8 a.m. Consult KG and Mr. Bofinger!
Their many years of experience in planning and implementing complex IT infrastructure, rollout and transition projects, paired with their expertise of implementing managed services was exactly what we were looking for. Together with the 8 a.m. Consult KG and our new managed service provider, in a very short timeframe, we were able to map almost 100% of our infrastructure on Microsoft Azure and Office 365 and to migrate our IT services into the cloud.

"Standardization of Back Office Infrastructure and Applications"

Standardization projects in a decentralized company are a big challenge for project management. Because they impact almost everybody, changes within the IT infrastructure have to be handled particularly delicately when dealing with the various departments. Furthermore, efficient management of the cost-and-benefit-optimizing measures is needed. Together, the central service provider and the local partners at the various sites planned and implemented the standardization of the infrastructure and applications of the local back offices at the over 20 German sites of Rödl & Partner. By providing consulting regarding the management of the project, 8 a.m. Consult contributed significantly to the overall success.
