The British Heart Foundation is the UK’s favourite heart charity and the largest researcher of life-saving cardiovascular research. As such, they have helped transform the lives of millions living with heart conditions. As a not-for-profit charity, the BHF are completely reliant on the generosity of its supporters to fund their research.

Firstly, Stratas have been streamlining processes for the BHF since 2013. It began with the deployment of print services to 750 shops across the UK and Ireland. Initially, this drove savings in excess of 50%.

In 2014, Stratas deployed a document scanning and workflow solution to rationalise site communication with centralised Head Office functions. As a result, this eliminated postage costs and reduced the time burden for store administration. Thus delivering a level of business agility which had previously been impossible to achieve. Consequently, this project alone had a return on investment of 62% and continues to deliver significant savings to the charity.

Following this, the BHF chose Stratas to design and implement a retail Gift Aid barcode printing system in 550 shops across the UK. As a result, Stratas successfully designed a process that has resulted in a seamless end user experience through support, flexibility and a can-do approach.

Working Together

At Stratas, we are honoured to have the unique ability to help BHF reach their goals, drive information innovation, and therefore, continue to make an impact.

To demonstrate, this video tells the story of how we came together and collaborated to ensure the success of this digital transformation project.

Overall, Stratas is focused on not only how we do things, but how we could do things. Without a doubt, they have shown us the Art of the Possible and current projects will deliver real benefits and tangible cost savings.”
