Dorset County Council’s broadband delivery team, dubbed the ‘Superfast Dorset Team’, which works alongside the government’s Broadband Delivery UK, has chosen enterprise content collaboration platform Huddle to help it manage the project and communicate with suppliers.

Superfast Dorset delivery officer Pete Bartlett explains the need for such a platform: “We have internal systems for sharing data, but we mostly rely on email. However, with the superfast broadband project, we’re looking at files of up to 100MB and as our email attachments are limited to just 10MB, we needed a much better solution.”

“Once we get into the delivery phase it will be used as a two-way data sharing platform for the suppliers to evidence what work they’ve done with us through their mapping and invoicing, for example,” Bartlett added.

Another advantage of using Huddle, he said, is that the council can now access files from the Local Authority Resource Centre (LARC), a workspace in which BDUK publicises all of its latest documents that also uses the Huddle platform.

According to Dorset Council’s ICT business analyst, Alison Andrews, Huddle was chosen after several file sharing options were considered and evaluated.
