Investors in People approached us when they needed some project work done. They were already using cloud based software and Office 365 in their business, but they needed to move all their laptops off their domain due to some internal restructuring.
Old systems in place that need migrating to the cloud
Mass migration to Office 365
Protect their IT systems and users from IT failures and hackers
There was a very short window of opportunity for this to be done, so some considerable planning was needed to achieve the results. Investors in People were also scanning to encrypted USB sticks and then transferring data to their machines. This was not very productive and made simple scanning a time-consuming job. As well as this, they also needed approximately 40 laptops re-imaged!
Using special software, we were able to move user profiles off a domain and onto a workgroup with ease, and with very minimal disruption and no data loss.
The scanner was set up so it would work with Office 365 and enable them to now scan to email – a much more efficient way of working.
By creating USB boot installs for Windows 10, with the latest feature update on, we managed to update the laptops with ease so they could be re-distributed and worked on by new employees starting.
The simple solutions we put in place mean Investors in People are now working more efficiently and by recycling their equipment will save huge amounts on hardware.
