Get Your Head In The Cloud

We recently teamed up with Freedom Bath & Bristol, who felt that their outdated set-up was holding them back.

The Challenge

Freedom Bath & Bristol were using an old IMAP server with limited support for email facilities. This set up provided limitations both in terms of access, support and stability.

The Solution

Having been recommended by another Bristol based charity, Flair 4 IT were chosen to manage the project to move Freedom Bath & Bristol from their existing email infrastructure to Exchange Online. In addition, on-going support was required.

Read the full case study where we explain the process undertaken and the challenges faced along the way.

The Result

This project saw 11 users and a total of 20 mailboxes successfully migrated to the new cloud based system. Exchange Online has provided Freedom Bath & Bristol with an email solution that:

        • Improves usability by providing familiar interfaces
        • Provides a web based platform that can be accessed anywhere from any device
        • Increases resilience, reliability and provides greater flexibility

We removed the limitations Freedom were facing and provided them with a solution that works for them. If you require support or advice on any aspect of cloud migration, give us a call today.

“We now have access to a team that can support and resolve any issues as and when we need them – this has removed limitations we previously had.”
