Areen Design has been at the forefront of interior design and fit-out for more than 30 years, with huge projects across the Middle East to their name, from airports to hotels, and from hospitals to luxury palaces. The key to Areen’s success is driven by the combination of high-quality design and high-speed implementation.
Areen came to Freeman Clarke to help keep their technology capabilities up to the demands of modern business and to offer their clients the very best service.
Mike Sturrock joined Areen’s executive team and immediately got to grips with both the fundamentals of running complex bespoke systems as well as developing a roadmap that aligned with the aspirations of the business. He implemented modern, cloud-based capabilities, delivering a much-enhanced level of integration with clients, including better visibility of project progress and supporting rich collaboration as designs developed. Security was also a key requirement, and the demands of the modern cyber environment were met, along with reducing annual costs by 25%.
Paul Hewes, Group Operations Director said:
“Mike became an invaluable member of our executive team very quickly, bringing a breadth of business and leadership knowledge as well as deep technical capability. We had the confidence to embark on a program of investment and renewal that we simply could not have achieved otherwise.”
The backbone of Mike’s contribution to Areen Design included migrating from a bespoke platform to industry-leading cloud capabilities, managing the user groups changing from their established ways of working, and ensuring that value to the client was always at the center of the work.
