Shared Care Scotland makes Big Savings on their IT

Shared Care Scotland helps carers and works to improve the quality, choice and availability of short breaks (respite care) across Scotland.

Solution required

Shared Care Scotland helps carers and works to improve the quality, choice and availability of short breaks (respite care) across Scotland. And their IT was in equal need of care. Shared Care Scotland had an eight-year old server that needed replaced. On top of this there was also a desire to help everyone work remotely and to improve on their disaster recovery and business continuity strategies.

Solution delivered

Shared Care Scotland took no convincing that Green IT-in-a-Box coupled with Microsoft’s Exchange Online cloud based email solution was the system for them. And, to seal the deal as a caring charity it was in their DNA to want to care for the environment too and nothing does it better than Green IT-in-a-Box.

Capital and Energy Savings

Amazing Capital Savings of around £4,023 were easily achieved for them plus they benefitted from Energy Efficiency improvements of between 50 – 60%. That’s another saving of around £2,506 over a 5 year period.

Additional Benefits

On top of that they were now able to hot-desk and work from anywhere and on any device – and all without cables and clutter. We’re delighted to say they are now thoroughly enjoying respite from their traditional IT. And it couldn’t happen to a more deserving group.

We’re very happy with the new system and very pleased with the support received to iron out minor issues. I thought the project management of the switchover was excellently handled too. You were very thorough in the preparation.
