How we helped

We were instructed by the IWMA to migrate its IT infrastructure from a shared IT platform to its own independent platform with hosted email and a virtualised server.

Throughout its relationship with the IWMA, we have facilitated its safe pursuit of new technologies that increase staff productivity and create the flexibility to continue working outside of the office. The cloud migration helped the client to achieve these aims, as well as create a reliable business continuity solution, with improved system performance and recovery.

Now operating cloud-hosted Microsoft Office 365, the IWMA platform and its users are supported by our Managed IT Services. This means that systems and data can be accessed from permitted devices anywhere in the world.

A managed approach to IT infrastructure means that their business continuity is handled proactively. Any developing faults or threats are taken care of before affecting users, systems or data. The result is a reduction in downtime, increased mobility for staff looking to work on-the-go, and the freeing up of IWMA’s management to focus on day-to-day business.
