Bibby Distribution, one of the UK’s leading independent logistics companies, combines an impressive portfolio of services with a unique business approach, genuine commitment to excellence and unrivalled pride in its people. Bibby Distribution has 41 operating centres with over 2 million sq. ft of storage, employing over 2000 staff, supported by over 1000 vehicles and using sophisticated computer system capability. Speed of access to accurate information is vital to Bibby’s success and the company was seeking an intranet solution to improve communication across all employees and locations.
Bibby distribution turned to SORCE for a packaged intranet solution that could be rapidly deployed and easily integrate information from a legacy Lotus Notes system. The new intranet ensures that all of Bibby’s staff have real-time access to up-to-date reports and timely information about the company’s business and people.
“We were looking for an intranet solution that could be deployed quickly, would easily integrate information from a Lotus Notes system and could be customized to our corporate look and feel,” said Colin Thistlewood, IT Manager at Bibby Distribution. “The SORCE intranet solution fits the bill on all three counts and has enabled us to deliver a productive intranet to over 400 users very quickly.”
“The SORCE intranet solution is designed to enable rapid deployment with maximum flexibility and choice of application,” said John Nicklin, Sales Director of SORCE. “Bibby Distribution has unique requirements that include the ability to integrate applications and information from a legacy system that the SORCE solution is able to address quickly and easily.”
