g-company | Part of Xebia
HVZ Fluvia is an emergency fire brigade located in South West Flanders and supervised by the Belgian Minister of Internal Affairs. Since January 2015, it has served 14 municipalities across 16 locations with the help of many volunteers
Finding a New Way to Collaborate
The Fluvia emergency fire service relies mostly on volunteers to perform its fire brigade services. Most of these volunteers did not have access to business IT accounts, which meant that information was often shared via personal accounts. However, fire services information is confidential and ideally should remain within the organization. Fluvia reached out to Xebia to find an alternative way to collaborate with its small team of professional firefighters and its larger pool of volunteers.
Secure Cloud-First Workplaces & Full Data Control
HVZ Fluvia can now offer secure cloud-first workplaces to all its firefighters while retaining full control over the data in its domain. Fluvia’s IT support can now focus on what is needed, adding functional productivity to end-users instead of wasting time maintaining and supporting local hardware and software. Next, Xebia will develop an intranet based on Google Sites and implement Google Currents within the HVZ Fluvia organization and provide the necessary training.
