Case study – Lubavitch Children’s Centre

Planning for the future success of London Jewish Centre

The background

The UK Lubavitch Children’s Centre (LCC) in Stamford Hill, London is a purpose-built, state-of-the-art facility providing culturally-sensitive services for children and adults in a multi-lingual environment.
Providing welfare for families, LCC has become a home-away-from-home at the very heart of the Jewish community. The Centre is part of the Lubavitch House Schools, founded in 1959 by the Lubavitch Foundation, which is an affiliate of the international Chabad Lubavitch movement, dedicated to spreading the wonders and rewards of Judaism around the world in an inclusive manner.

The challenge

IT is crucial in education. Technology can help to increase interest, activate children’s mental activity, broaden their horizons, and evoke an emotional response. IT can also aid the cognitive activity of pupils, stimulate and develop mental processes, and boost thinking and memory perception.
Communication technology, such as email, is also widely used, allowing for prompt interaction between the participants of the educational process.
IT is also used to collect and process information, such as making lists of children, collating information about parents, conducting diagnostics of the development of children and creating various forms of documents.
Historically, the LCC had not had any form of IT infrastructure. We knew it was important to change that.

The approach

In developing LCC’s IT infrastructure, we knew it was important to consider the organisations’ future plans for further development. This helps to minimise future costs of capacity expansion, and reduce the total cost of purchasing equipment and maintaining the IT infrastructure for the long term.
First, we analysed LCC’s infrastructure requirements, and then developed the technical specifications to include all client requirements.
Next, we determined the requirements for IT systems, before the implementation stage – when the equipment is delivered and installed.
Finally, we created an as-built document for the client, containing a detailed description of the IT infrastructure required for the use and maintenance of the corporate information system.

The results

LCC now has a valuable IT infrastructure in place allowing the organisation to effectively conduct its business and plan for the future.
Our work with LCC included cost optimisation efforts based on its current and future business development plans. Addressing the workload of all company employees, all IT processes are fully automated as part of a well-built IT infrastructure. And additional investments in IT technologies will produce a predictable result.
All of our work was carried out by experienced professionals, from start to finish, with all tasks solved within one project. This allowed LCC to get a fully-functional IT infrastructure that they can now trust to deliver efficiency and enhanced business performance, now and in the future.
