Thomas Duryea and Logicalis teams merge in new Melbourne HQ

Thomas Duryea Logicalis has marked the final stage of the integration of the two companies with the opening of new Melbourne office focused on activity-based working.

Logicalis, part of the same global group at Westcon-Comstor, acquired Thomas Duryea in December 2015 – and now the two teams are finally under one roof.

The company has integrated technologies from Microsoft, Cisco and Aruba, including Windows, Office 365, Teams, SharePoint and whiteboard technologies.

TDL chief executive Michael Chanter said: “We’re able to connect on Skype for Business using Surface Hubs and digital whiteboards.

"We also have a strong heritage with Cisco and have deployed a lot of Spark Boards, which are amazing pieces of technology that allow us to connect internally but also with our customers really easily.

Chanter said it was "all about making sure that people can work effectively together".

“If you think about the way you design the spaces and you’re careful about how you integrate technology, it makes a big difference to how productive people are.

“You’ve heard about how hard it is to attract and retain talent – I would say that’s almost our number one challenge, its importance for us to be able to deliver an environment that people really enjoy working in and feel really connected to each other and the space.”

Chanter said the office served as a showroom for customers. 

“'Modern Workplace', our key strategic practice, has been a fundamental component in delivering digital outcomes for our customers,” he said.

“We have found that customers and employees demand innovative technologies that integrate tightly with modern office environments and we wanted to reflect that within our own organisation."
