Californian consulting firm Berkeley Research Group (BRG) is using cloud collaboration tool Huddle to bring together its network of experts and affiliate organisations from all over the world.
BRG offers a worldwide strategy and consulting service that focuses on connecting clients to the right internal experts, and a global network of affiliated firms, universities, and individuals with a range of specialised knowledge in a variety of disciplines.
Because collaboration is central to BRG’s business model, the company sought out a tool that was secure, efficient, and universally accessible. BRG team members now use Huddle to collaborate on projects with each other and with other team members, eliminating hundreds of emails and streamlining processes to deliver exceptional service to clients.
Before implementing Huddle, BRG relied heavily on email, which could slow operating processes and create version control issues. Collaborating in the cloud ensures that BRG’s content is up-to-date at all times.
Since deploying Huddle, BRG has noted dramatic enhancement in its users’ ability to collaborate quickly and efficiently. Team members no longer have to take turns making revisions to a document, which has accelerated revision and approval processes. Huddle is easily scalable, allowing BRG to add new team members as additional expertise is required to address a challenge facing its clients.
“Huddle speeds both direct collaboration and internal processes,” said Kevin Hamilton, managing director of Healthcare Performance Improvement at BRG. “It’s easy to use, so we can on-board new team members quickly and easily. We’ve streamlined our processes, and the result is highly responsive project teams that quickly bring to bear the best expertise in the business.”
“In our field, we need to operate quickly, flexibly, and inclusively to set ourselves apart,” continued Hamilton. “The value we provide our clients comes from combining the knowledge of specialists from all over the world to provide the most informed approach to their issues. Huddle lets us do that better and faster.”
As an organisation that works heavily with government and healthcare clients, BRG members interact with sensitive data on a day-to-day basis. Security was a key requirement for BRG in the search for a collaboration solution.
“Working with major government and enterprise organisations around the world, we work hard to ensure Huddle remains the gold-standard in secure cloud collaboration software,” added Morten Brogger, Huddle CEO. “We are thrilled to see the terrific results that BRG have achieved using our secure collaboration platform.”
