Underpinning the physical designs was a clear request and mandate to improve communication and collaboration across the national and international teams.
POMT was involved in the evaluation, design and deployment of Zoom which alongside Slack and GSuite, saw Iress completely re-invent and re-invigorate their productivity, collaboration and communicate suite.

With a focus on connectivity and freedom, POMT designed, delivered and continue to support solutions that prioritise the human element so crucial to Iress’ service. Staying on top of the constant changes in the market requires technology that can keep up with the rapid-fire updates in the environment.
