Our client place Office and Industrial staff into Permanent, Temporary and Contract positions across all industry sectors on a daily basis throughout Berkshire and Surrey catchment area. With 5 Branch offices located within 25 miles of each other and to the West of London in between the M3 and M4 corridor these are very busy branches that need to have the ability to quickly share job opportunities and CV’s alike.
Having 4 offices proved to be a challenge on a daily basis. Connectivity between the sites was poor and because they shared resources with the head office; such as Microsoft Exchange this meant that email was unreliable and slow, a potential business loser.
LAN Support analysed the current environment and forwarded a proposal that would change everything moving forward. Our consultants put together a business IT strategy and delivered it.
We provided superfast broadband connectivity to 3 of the 4 branches, this not only improved the connection to the internet from 3MB to 70MB but was cheaper than the current ADSL service. We then migrated their Exchange server to Microsoft Office 365 Business Premium and provided 2 Hosted Servers running their line of business application. We then deployed several Managed Services such as Antivirus, SPAM Filtering and Help Desk services.
“The difference this solution has made is business changing. To be able to resolve so many issues in such a short amount of time is just outstanding and beyond expectation.”
By providing Microsoft Office 365 Business Premium we were able to provide a service level uptime of 99.99%, secure access to data, business continuity and a help desk support service. Providing a Hosted Server solution enabled greater access speeds to the server from any office, the ability to work from one central database, reduced costs in hardware and software support.
