“We needed to find solutions to a variety of issues whilst being a complex business, operating in a 24/7 environment. Stripe OLT listened and understood immediately the challenges we faced.”
They offer users access to their email from anywhere and on any device, all for a monthly fee. Maintaining the organisation’s other business services on a virtualised server meant that each service would behave as a stand-alone server, despite all being hosted on the same piece of hardware. This means that rebooting the finance server or maintaining the CRM system would no longer affect any other business services.
HOW WE DID IT
Often the software on phones or tablets needs to be updated or configured to use Office 365, so it was important for us to understand Elevation’s email processes and user preferences. We then ensured that the synchronisation between the Elevation network and the cloud was in place before scheduling a convenient date and time to switch over to the cloud.
This is always done out of hours to minimise disruption, and our engineers were on site early the next morning to ensure that any teething issues were ironed out swiftly. We moved all the hardware over the weekend and made sure all the services were up and running, ensuring that everything was ready for the next working day.
THE KEY TO SUCCESS
“We had gone from 3 people to 19, and had to move offices,” explains Beatrice. “We were not looking forward to the disruption of the move at all, but Stripe OLT made it all run incredibly smoothly.”
“We’ve been working with Elevation for a number of years while they’ve seen their growth, so it was a pleasure to move them into their new home,” concludes Alex Eley – Technical Director – Stripe OLT “It’s always good to work with such a dynamic business.”
