About Downing LLP

Downing LLP is a privately owned investment firm founded in 1986, with over 25,000 investors in businesses including renewable energy, care homes, health clubs and children's nurseries.

The Challenge

As a growing financial services firm, Downing LLP began finding it increasingly difficult to keep staff better informed about what was happening in the company.

The Solution

Wanstor was the best partner for this piece of work as it has significant experience in designing and deploying a range of Microsoft SharePoint solutions and holds Solutions Partner status with Microsoft.

Our new intranet site built by Wanstor has been a real success story. Staff have commented on how it makes their lives easier by giving access to the information they need, when they need it."
