Office 365 - Software as a Service (SaaS)
Office 365 puts enterprise grade services in reach of all business. By using Office 365 you can realise productivity benefits across your entire organisation, in how you communicate, streamlining workflows, and administration.
Using SaaS, you are able to remove the administration commonly required around on premise infrastructure and re-focus your efforts on business productivity improvement.
Now your business can benefit from the same software advantages as your biggest competitor.
Provide your business with the systems they have been asking for reliably, efficiently and cost effectively.
With offices Victoria, N.S.W and Queensland, Sunbather was looking to streamline its administration; improve document and data movement throughout, minimising replication of processes, along with increasing security and productivity.
With an aging mail solution that was at capacity, an unmanaged instant messaging solution, and no presence, the need to communicate and collaborate efficiently was critical.
Sunbather needed to enable their team with anywhere access, to all key business services while improving performance.
The challenge was to deliver cloud based mail services which can be accessed from any device, anywhere to all key business services while improving performance.
SIAX were able to realise that the Office 365 solution aligned with Sunbather, providing a core platform that will allow Sunbather to be agile and responsive.
Sunbather chose to engage SIAX for the complete solution including; Analysis, Design, Activation, Migration, Ongoing Support and Training, all delivered on-time, on-budget & completely.
The scope set by Sunbather was clear, deploy Office 2016 Professional and Migrate all mail services and archives into Office 365 completely and with minimal business interruption and no loss of functionality.
Lync and SharePoint services also needed to be deployed and activated in conjunction with the migration.
The Office 365 platform gives greater flexibility to Sunbather. The “pay-as-you-go” subscription model allows Sunbather to increase or decrease their licensing requirement in accordance to seasonal demands.
The new tools, higher capacities and levels of redundancy have made Sunbather’s staff more efficient and improved business performance.
Sunbather is also seeing the financial and productivity benefits using Microsoft Skype.
Skype allows Sunbather to easily schedule interstate meetings online without the requirement for travel, increasing productivity and reducing travel associated expenses.
