The Metropolitan Police Service needed to run a virtual online digital event for an audience of 500 people to launch their £600m strategic IT outsourcing initiative code-named ‘The Pegasus Programme’. This was a strategic event that would be hosted by the CIO and attended by stakeholders from the press, suppliers and internally.

Buy or Build?

The Met were faced with a choice to either try and run this high-profile event internally, using internal resource and technology platforms or partner with an expert who had the relevant skills, experience, knowledge and access to the best technology platforms.

After considering their options and a full market evaluation of the suppliers available on the Government G-Cloud portal, the strategic sourcing team at the Met chose to work with Generation Digital as they demonstrated the skills, experience, market knowledge and approach required to ensure the event was a success.

Zoom Managed Webinar Solution

Once selected, the consulting team at Generation Digital quickly partnered with the project team at the Met to deep dive into their objectives and validate their requirements via workshops. Once the outcomes were clearly understood and documented a solution was designed that would deliver the desired results.

The recommended solution was based on a full end to end Zoom Managed Webinar 'Concierge' Service delivery by Generation Digital that enabled the Met to deliver improved user experience, taking full advantage of the power of the Zoom platform and a significant cost-saving vs the traditional physical event without the associated risk or cost of running Zoom Webinars internally.


Following a demo of the Zoom platform at Zoom’s London HQ to the Met project team, the proposed  Zoom Managed Webinar Service was quickly signed off as the best fit solution to deliver on the requirements.
