Why Reale Group wants to collaborate across countries
To become a global player, Reale Group wanted to build a ‘super information highway’ between their operations in Italy and Spain. They needed to improve collaboration between their 3,100 employees, and create an environment that would facilitate teamwork.
Reale Group, founded in 1828 in Turin, is Italy’s oldest insurance company, and provides insurance, real estate brokering, banking and financial services to more than 3.8 million customers in Italy and Spain.
Their vision is to become a global player and wanted employees in Italy and Spain to collaborate and communicate seamlessly. To enable this, they needed a metropolitan network to connect offices in these two countries.
It was also necessary to consolidate their Italian operations into three offices: a new head office building in as well as another office in Turin and an office in Collecchio.
A critical requirement was to deploy reliable infrastructure that would provide the platform for delivering communication and collaboration services across the Group. The infrastructure had to be multi-vendor so that the technological independence of the companies could be maintained.
