bluesource Australia – Playfair selects Office 365 and uses bluesource to help lower IT costs and more

bl​uesource Australia – February 24th, 2015 – Playfair, a rapidly expanding Australian legal firm specialising in migration chooses bluesource to migrate its IT systems to Microsoft Office 365 and upgrade its server infrastructure. This has resulted in lower IT ownership costs, improved customer service and operational efficiencies for Playfair.​

bluesource helped architect and transition Playfair’s systems onto Microsoft’s leading edge, Office 365 platform and delivered a Windows server upgrade.

Playfair was struggling to support its staff members with its current IT infrastructure and wanted a solution that could improve its core business system and customer information and communication. They wanted to de-risk the IT environment and create a new, flexible, platform to enable more structured information management as well as catering for future increases in scale, rationalising license fees and reducing overall, on-premises IT costs.

bluesource with its strong industry accreditations and a proven record of global excellence in Microsoft system migrations and implementations, helped establish and create the most appropriate IT platform for Playfair.

bluesource delivered an IT change management strategy that recommended Playfair to move to Microsoft Office 365 which would allow flexibility and security that Playfair required without the burden of management, upgrades and support. bluesource managed the design and migration of Playfair’s systems and data to Microsoft Office 365’s Exchange on-line ensuring that there was no operational downtime, that the information was protected and maintained an unbroken chain-of-custody. This new solution supports Playfair’s growth, delivers scalability, flexibility, operational continuity and has helped in reducing its overall IT ownership, management and support costs.

Shanil Nanayakkara, Practice Manager Playfair said, “Our new hybrid cloud environment is proving highly cost effective, flexible and secure – helping our staff to better manage information and effectively collaborate. bluesource’s combination of technical competence and thorough understanding of client needs, makes them an excellent, highly reliable, implementation and support partner.”​
