Our Project

GrowthPoint was engaged to develop and guide the implementation of an IT roadmap for EastCoal’s distributed operations.


“I partnered with Mike at GrowthPoint to develop the IT infrastructure for EastCoal, a start-up mining company with operations in Eastern Europe and a head office in Vancouver. We needed a stable and secure IT network that was accessible from anywhere in the world and allowed staff to do their jobs regardless of their location.

I had worked with Mike before and knew that he was the right person for the job. Very quickly Mike presented a variety of options and once we selected the one for us, it was implemented quickly and worked the way it was meant to.”
