Case Study: Swales & Willis

Who are Swales & Willis?

Swales & Willis is a growing independent book project management company working in the Academic publishing sector. The company produces over 200 academic books per year for UK and US academic publishers and uses a diverse supplier base in the UK and overseas to process high amounts of data, both text and images, for both print and ebooks.

What was the IT challenge?

Swales and Willis is a growing company in a competitive marketplace and, as it has grown, so too has the IT demands on the business. As you’d expect, the team at S&W excel in book production work, but haven’t got the in-house capabilities to address today’s IT challenges. After trying a number of alternatives which failed to deliver tangible benefits to the business, they turned to the team at VPW to help them transform IT in a practical way.

The requirement was to deliver flexible IT services so the team could work from home, improve data security and backup capabilities, avoid the need for large capital investment in equipment and deliver a solution without significant disruption.
