The Challenge

Anheuser-Busch InBev (ABInBev ) sought support for its large-scale, enterprise level IT services – specifically for 15 of its North American functional areas. Because of the enterprise’s size and complexity, they required a flexible model for services that could be delivered on-site, off-site (local area) and near-shore from all North American Delivery Centers. ABInBev engaged Astadia for its ability to meet all these criteria and more.

The Solution

ABInBev chose Astadia for a centralized and managed solution, as well as our wide variety of support solutions to meet their current and anticipated future needs. They also valued Astadia’s agile and flexible response to changes in scope and seamless transition. In addition, Astadia’s established quality processes and service level reviews ensure ABInBev of high visibility and a commitment to continuously meeting service level metrics.

At the outset, to minimize transition impact Astadia retained 90% of existing ABInBev resources as part of our team. The team continues to grow and has assumed responsibility for all Level 1, 2 and 3 resources supporting the ABInBev infrastructure in North America as well as customer-facing events.

To ensure Astadia consistently meets service level agreement (SLA) requirements, we provide our customer with regular weekly meetings and monthly governance views to highlight any service gaps and areas for opportunity. The Astadia team averages 99% compliance at all monthly service level reviews.
