Cloud Transformation Project for Phoenix Recruitment Services
Phoenix Recruitment Services (PRS) is one of the leading providers of recruitment services to the Building and Services sector. PRS was referred to Meritum Cloud by an existing customer to help them move away from a Citrix Hosted Desktop managed by their incumbent IT services provider. Being in a fast-paced industry, PRS required a modern and future-proof IT platform to help them work smarter and be more competitive.
For a number of years, PRS relied on a Citrix Hosted Desktop to provide their employees with productivity and line-of-business applications. Hosted in a remote Data Centre and accessed over the internet, the PRS IT platform suffered from downtime, inconsistent performance, and lack of high availability. Legacy Operating Systems and applications provided usability and compatibility challenges. Collaboration with peers and clients was limited due to a lack of modern technology.
Meritum Cloud analysed the existing IT environment and worked with PRS to define business and technical requirements.
To address the needs of the business, Meritum Cloud recommended a Microsoft solution based on Office 365 and Intune, complemented by several other cloud services.
The solution addressed the end-to-end needs of the modern business including productivity tools, cloud-based mail, data, and backup, to name a few.
