Calvin Capital






Managed Support, Professional Services, Microsoft 365,
Microsoft Teams and Chess Teams Voice

Calvin Capital is a leading owner and manager of essential energy infrastructure assets. It's a highly competitive and forward-thinking organisation, and a significant player in the market that's creating cleaner and more sustainable energy accessible by all.

Calvin Capital have worked with Chess and our sister company CyberLab successfully for over three
years, with the team at Calvin Capital benefiting from Chess expertise across a range of technologies.

The Challenge 

Calvin Capital is always looking for ways to improve their operational efficiency, technical capability, and profitability. Nadeem Shafi, Calvin Capital’s Head of IT, had a clear vision to drive and support the business move to the modern workplace. This includes supplying their people with devices they enjoy using, office applications and platforms that help them collaborate efficiently, and meeting rooms equipped with video and audio conference technology, all protected with robust security measures.

The Solution

Calvin Capital awarded Chess ICT a renewed contract to supply Managed Services support, giving Nadeem and his team additional resource to call upon when supporting their people on a day-to-day basis.

At the same time, CyberLab conducted a M365 Security Assessment, to help implement security best practices with Microsoft 365. This included a Secure Score Review, and a gap analysis highlighting the areas to focus on. Nadeem and CyberLab explored how security features within Microsoft could help keep company data secure, and Calvin Capital are now rolling out a migration to M365 E5 licences for all their people.

By equipping team members with Microsoft Surface Pros, Chess ICT ensured that they team have
devices that they enjoy using, and that have the functionality they need to drive productivity. Chess
also continued their support with Calvin Captial’s telephony system, setting up Teams Voice, a unified
communications platform that enabled Calvin’s staff to communicate seamlessly from any location.

The Outcome

Nadeem and his team work with Chess ICT and CyberLab on a daily basis, as well as on specific
individual projects, to help ensure their short, medium and long-term objectives can be met.

"We have a very open and productive relationship with Chess ICT and CyberLab, and they're always really responsive when we have questions or suggestions. Being able to tap into knowledge and expertise that we trust across a wide range of technologies really helps us to keep moving forward. It's a real partnership."
