Hitting the Gold Standard

iSite, the technology division of Styles and Wood, has won a contract that will see the implementation of The Hub with Africa’s largest bank to deliver a consolidated ‘one view’ of the latter’s estates and facilities management operations.

Rumoured to be Standard Bank, the iSite team has been working alongside its representatives from to determine the best technology that will integrate several existing systems already being used by the bank, as well as to develop additional capabilities and reporting standards. The Hub is claimed to be the answer – a fully integrated, cloud based, web portal created by iSite.

It will provide a ‘single version of the truth’, taking data from various sources around the business and consolidating them into real time management information. This, in turn, should speed up the decision process and enable more accurate information to be immediately available. The system will allow for both the collection and dissemination of information via enabled mobile devices and permits the bank to both retain and consolidate existing specialist systems that both suppliers and internal staff are already using.

Martin Ward, iSite’s managing director said: “This deal with Africa’s largest bank is a testimony to the results we have delivered on behalf of several major blue chip financial organisations, most recently Nationwide. Because The Hub allows a single overview of an organisations assets it means real savings can be made, teams can be streamlined and value added to the bottom line. It’s an exciting project for us and a great start to 2014.”
