Glenn was very forward thinking and believed in the Cloud, so he chose to migrate the business to Google Apps.

“All our printing is now working perfectly and the internet has a backup configured so we don’t ever go down. Their advice was clear and simple, which was followed up by a very efficient piece of project work. TechQuarters support our whole network and I must say they are a pleasure to deal with!.”

TSG – 365 Cloud Academy Training and Partnering with TechQuarters

With experienced specialists across all areas of technology from infrastructure to telecoms, ERP to Office 365, business intelligence to SharePoint, TSG is one of the UK’s leading IT organisations. Although TSG offer a wide variety of IT solutions, they discovered there was a distinct lack of training available around solutions like Office 365 – cue the 365 Cloud Academy. Partnering with TechQuarters and 365 Cloud Academy allowed TSG to offer a complete end-to-end package to the clients; improving productivity and uptake of Microsoft products.

“The quality of the 365 cloud academy solution, was a perfect filer for a gap that we (TSG) had in terms of training for our clients; it was an ideal fit… so much so, we actually deployed it (365 Cloud Academy) internally as well.”

Paul Burns – CTO, TSG

Roedean School – Office 365

Roedean Exchange server was nearing its end of life and becoming difficult to support internally. Roedean were made aware that Microsoft Office 365 was free for education, so wanted to investigate how it would integrate with their existing network. However, a fast transition time for all 800 mailboxes was imperative for the school.

“Having email hosted in Microsoft Office 365 has meant we can reduce our number of servers by three, reduce our licencing requirements for Windows and email scanning, eliminate the headache of internal backups or disaster recovery and have saved precious time for our ICT staff.”

Shayne Parker – IT Manager Roedean School

Caroline Chisoholm School – Office 365 for Education

Barry Jeffrey, the IT Manager from Caroline Chisholm School, approached TechQuarters to help move their system from Exchange 2010 to Office 365 for Education.

“Their reputation as Cloud Champions is well deserved—our system was facing some problems but TechQuarters did whatever it took to deliver the project on time, and within budget.”
