Case Study Two
When we first started working with one of our charity clients, they had gone from a home-based operation to a handful of staff members working in three different locations.
When they decided they needed an office we kitted them out with a complete from-scratch network system that was designed to fit their needs and also grow with them. We designed and set up a comms room, installed servers and built a network with spare capacity for their projected staff growth. This meant incorporating remote working, including web access to files and email, and email on mobile devices, from the start.
Their core network included an Exchange email server and SQL Server database servers, as well as file servers and a remote access server. We set up both in-house and cloud-based backup for them, with off-site email and spam filtering and cloud-based anti-virus and network monitoring. And we made sure they got the best internet connection possible for their budget.
Then we set up all their PCs – both new and old – onto the network, migrated all of their data to the servers, and migrated their domains and DNS into our management.
When they won funding to transform their website into a central part of their business, we helped them to find a web design company that could meet the brief.
Now they have a network that supports up to 20 regular users both in the office and in remote locations. By subscribing to our managed services they can be confident that their network is being monitored in the background, assuring high availability and communications systems that are up to the job, and flexible enough to keep growing.
