Bostoen

Collaborating in different locations thanks to IT outsourcing

Bostoen Customer Case

Residential property developer Bostoen has been providing households with new homes for more than 40 years. Apartments, custom homes, masonry, timber frame... Everything is possible! For its web hosting, the company has been relying on Combell for many years, but this collaboration was recently expanded to include cloud hosting, app hosting and hardware outsourcing

Bostoen’s request

  • Growth strategy: working closer to the customers in regional offices
  • Software: the tools for planning and document sharing must continue to work properly after the creation of regional offices
  • Hardware: renewal of the existing in-house infrastructure that needed to be replaced
  • Website: new website, mobile first
  • Customer Zone web app: also available for smartphones

« In the long run, it was less expensive to start using Combell cloud hosting than having to purchase the hardware ourselves”

Combell’s solution

  • Cloud hosting makes it possible to open regional offices
  • Collaboration tools in the cloud are available everywhere and at all times – you just need to log in to your account
  • No investment in new hardware, but outsourcing – migrating to a hybrid cloud infrastructure provided by Combell, which includes firewalls, domain controllers, remote desktops, database servers, etc.
  • New responsive website on the fast cloud web server
  • Customer Zone is now a smartphone app, which is very easy to use on the construction site, especially thanks to the Media Corner feature that allows direct communication with Bostoen

“Thanks to Combell cloud hosting, we can now have our employees work all over Flanders, close to our customers”

Joery Michiels, Head of Corporate Sales & Marketing Bostoen-groep
