A Civilized Migration
Far flung teams are a business norm these days, but companies don’t always have the technology infrastructure to adequately support them. This was the case when we stepped in to help a local company headquartered in Vancouver with their SharePoint migration. With staff working remotely, our client was losing valuable productivity time battling with VPNs on a daily basis.
The sudden push to remote work illuminated a common issue for many workplaces: VPN trouble. Signing in, network speed and security are complaints from staff who are using VPNs to access work files remotely. Plus, with so many employees on the network, the heavy load dropped speed to a crawl and work came to a standstill. Frustration was a daily occurrence.
Our client knew they had to address staff complaints and solve this tech issue immediately.
The Technikel Solution
A VPN routes internet and power through the physical office, which exacerbates latency issues. This extra step was unnecessary and old fashioned. After examining their system infrastructure, we knew the best solution was to migrate them to SharePoint because it offers:
- On-demand files (without taking up any disk space)
- Easily shareable files
- 99.9% uptime
- Real-time collaborative file editing
- Accessibility from any device via a web browser
Thrilled to avoid paying for a new physical server and delighted this move was already included in their O365 licenses, we began migrating the client to SharePoint.
Upon its unveiling, staff noticed an immediate difference in network speed and file reliability; collaboration tools were icing on the cake. Staff love the ease of the new system and peace of mind knowing every document is in the cloud.
