The move gives all staff access to email and calendaring product Exchange Online, collaboration tool SharePoint Online, Lync Online instant messaging, and social network service Yammer.
Richard Wilkinson, Bolton CAB’s Chief Officer said:
“Moving to the cloud enables us to resolve our client problems more quickly, and effectively and share expertise around the organisation. It has moved our IT along into a new paradigm. It has also significantly increased the security of our systems.
Having looked at a number of potential options we chose Office 365 due to its incredibly competitive pricing and ease of use.
We’re delighted to be working with Shaping Cloud who have helped us on this journey. They took the time to understand our business and aren’t ‘sales people’ we are often approached by.
Managing Director of Shaping Cloud, Carlos Oliveira said:
“It’s great to see a public sector organisation like Bolton CAB embracing new technologies.
We find that many organisations in the 3rd sector are reluctant to change their IT, despite the incredible cost savings and productivity benefits that are now possible.
These are exciting times for Bolton CAB as they can now scale their services when it makes sense, and enable staff to work together from anywhere. We’re looking forward to continuing to help them innovate and improve their services.”
