Streamlined Office Design for Chinese News Publisher

10 Oct 2018 Information and communication

China Daily needed a future-proof digital workplace for its new London headquarters. Now, with the help of our IT Consultancy and Design, communication with colleagues around the world has been greatly streamlined. Plus, they have a clear IT strategy aligned to business goals. 

future proof digital workplace

China Daily is the official English language newspaper publication of the People’s Republic of China. As well as running offices and editorial bureaus throughout China, they have offices in New York, Washington, Hong Kong, Nairobi and London. 

Following rapid expansion of its London headquarters, they asked us to help them to move to a new head office. Firstly, we needed to be clear on their requirements. With the help of our Discovery workshops we managed to map out a clear picture of both current and future requirements for their digital workplace. Secondly, we used this information to create a complete IT strategy and budget for their relocation.

The team were able to seamlessly incorporate standard IT infrastructure requirements alongside more customised requirements required by our head office back in China



By providing clear budgets, aligned to goals, we helped fast-track internal project sign off from China. Following the success of the initial project our relationship has evolved significantly. For example, we now implement and support all of their IT services. And because we have a clear view of requirements, our experts make sure they achieve better value at each stage of the project life cycle.

Working with the Telefónica Tech team was a very friendly and professional experience and we would recommend them to anyone.
