Business Requirements

KDM are reliant on email as their main communication tool between offices, staff, clients, and the sub-contractors. Over time their old, on-premises based, Exchange Email Server was causing more and more issues.

Also, KDM were concerned about the security of their email system and the old setup was no longer fit for the business needs.

Business Solution

After reviewing different solutions, KDM have decided to go with the Microsoft’s Office 365 proposition and start from adopting their Exchange Online email platform.

Minimising the downtime while transitioning to the “Cloud” was one of the main requirements. Thus, we spent a lot of time initially planning the whole migration project to make sure that there are no surprises during the implementation process. Also, we have put safeguards in place that not a single email got lost throughout the organisation during the switchover process.

Managed IT Experts team has completed the project successfully so that KDM can now reap the benefits of having their email system fully in the “Cloud”.

Business Benefits

One of the key benefits for KDM was the ability to synchronise their emails across multiple devices fully. It meant that their staff and sub-contractors could work from anywhere and any device – standard workstation, tablet, laptop, or their smartphone on the go.

Also, it was very appealing that they no longer have to make on-going investments into their local Server infrastructure and Microsoft’s Cloud will simply take of it. So, they will always have the latest version of the email system and MS Office suite applications like Outlook, Word, Excel, etc.

All that just for a small monthly fee sounded like money very well spent for KDM.
