Reaping the benefits

We’ll work with you to overcome any challenges, using our vast knowledge and expertise to give you the best advice. Here are some of the common issues we hear about:

Accelerated time to market
When resource is deployed to ‘firefighting’, there’s less time available to be forward thinking about application architecture and functionality. Modernising to a cloud platform means you don’t need to worry about supporting the infrastructure and can focus on the application itself.
Security & reliability
Get maximum IP and data protection by utilising Azure’s native compliance and security tools along with Azure high availability and disasters recovery features.
Modernisation plan
The modernisation plan can feel like a challenge due to pressures on internal resources which can make it difficult to identify the best route for re-platforming. We’ll guide you through the process, assessing each app’s suitability so we can recommend the best option.
Using data
Make better data driven decisions more efficiently by using the Azure monitor or application insights to view performance, usage and availability of your apps.
Whatever the size and needs of your business, by modernising your applications, you can unlock the power of Azure to scale either up or down depending on usage requirements.


Benefitting from up-to-date industry knowledge


Low / no code

In recent years, there has been an evident upward trend in application development that focuses more on visual programming as the primary approach to create solutions, rather than conventional manual hand coding practices.


AI capabilities

The emergence of AI is helping novices write software. While this opens up more opportunities for less tech savvy people, businesses need to be mindful that applications are still written and hosted securely and robustly.

Don’t just take
our word for it…

Commercial deliver. We are fortunate to work with some amazing partners. Here are some examples of great things we hear every day.

The new Walsall Housing Group office is a fantastic, fresh and modern workplace thanks to the wonderful work of the Commercial interiors team. They created a steering group to work alongside us to understand our demands and held regular meetings during the design process to keep us informed of the progress. Our desire was for a more collaborative space, with meeting booths and one-to-one seating, rather than traditional desks – and they delivered a fantastic final fit-out over the full four-floor building.
Each year, Commercial supplies accessory packs to graduate trainees at a leading accountancy firm, which are then picked, packed, and delivered to their home addresses by the Commercial Foundation. This not only guarantees that every new employee has the necessary equipment to be productive from their first day but also allows their IT team to focus on other responsibilities. Collaborating with the Commercial Foundation generates substantial social value returns on investment for the firm and contributes to improving the lives of the Foundation's volunteers.
Wollens have enjoyed a long-standing and fruitful partnership with Commercial because they are always introducing innovations and improvements to our IT environment. As the threat of cyber-attacks increases it was vital that we strengthened our capabilities for dealing with a ransomware attack with a cloud-based backup solution. Our solution means data cannot be altered or deleted, giving us a crucial way of recovering data to minimise any potential downtime and financial losses
Working with Commercial for our branded materials has proved to be effective and collaborative. The team is efficient and they listen to requests for improvements. Commercial has made branded goods simple.
As E-commerce in retail continues to grow, Commercial’s stock-management and fulfilment expertise has allowed a leading UK retailer to free huge amounts of warehouse space. Commercial took on the stocking of our employee uniform, transferring to a new supplier with the management of the supply being consolidated into their existing supply accounts. Not only did this free vital space in their distribution centre, the consolidated supply of all GNFR delivered significant delivery cost savings.
At JoJo Maman Bébé we are happy to work with the Commercial Foundation and support inspiring work they do to help disadvantaged young adults. Like us, the Foundation are a B Corp certified organisation that is proven to put purpose ahead of profits. We have enjoyed working with their volunteers to help with a mug-making activity. We are now working alongside them to create an introduction gift for our new employees, these include printed mugs, pens and notebooks.
