Mono is the largest provider of network support services to the mobile telecoms sector providing a complete range of end-to-end services to network operator clients across the UK.
Following a period of rapid growth, the company needed to develop a critical application for the management of new telecom network projects covering acquisition, planning, design, construction, power and logistics. Effective tracking and management of documentation and data between Mono and partners is critical to the success of each project.
Bridgeall was appointed to design, develop and implement a new Deployment Database for Mono.
With a significant number of new telecoms projects about to start, the timescale for development was extremely challenging. Using an Agile development approach, Bridgeall successfully delivered within two months.
The design team had to be extremely flexible, accommodating multiple departments and changes to the specification during the development phase. The solution was delivered using the Microsoft Azure platform, developed in ASP.NET using Visual Studio and the MVC framework, designed to scale to 1000's of projects and 100's of users.
Circa 2,500 active projects are being managed simultaneously from the new Deployment System which now plays a key role in Mono's drive to scale the business and cater for a growing client list.
Ian Marshall, Director in charge of the Deployment Division at Mono said:
"The big challenge for Bridgeall was to convince us they had the capability to deliver an effective database application in the timescales, something that had not been done successfully before by previous IT suppliers. Bridgeall has been a key ingredient in helping us achieve our targets. We look forward to working with them again in the future. Everyone at Mono has been very impressed with the way Bridgeall understood the requirements clearly and delivered an effective solution. The team was extremely flexible and communicated very effectively with everyone involved."
Bridgeall MD, Stephen Beer said:
"We were delighted when Mono decided to work with Bridgeall in this critical area of the business. We have a strong record of achievement in rapid development environments and are very delighted with the results here."
