Apr 08 in Case study
Protec provided support for the on-premise Exchange environment at the client site for a number of years. The change in business setup and client needs drove a request for a cloud based email platform. The chosen solution was required to be easily scalable for fluctuating user count. Additional requirements were, the data must be hosted in the UK and protected by SSL encryption for secure email transit between Rapp Trans and their clients and providers. Protec performed a technical feasibility study and on possible providers. The decision was made to use Microsoft own hosted Exchange platform (Office 365 for Business).
Protec worked with Rapp Trans to plan the project and set out timelines, this allowed for a hassle free migration with minimum downtime. The project was actioned for a weekend allowing for minimum disruption. Throughout the migration Outlook Web Access was provided to historical email, along with access to the platform for current inbound mail was provided to ensure the continuation of email communication.
