The cloud solution
The implementation of Microsoft® Office 365 meant staff operating remotely to the business could stay on the same network, keeping up to date on projects and in contact with other staff members as needed. On top of that, effective backups and cloud storage helps keep these documents safe and secure.
Opting for a cloud solution also allowed Calibre to save on their IT overheads. And we’re not talking about a small amount either – Calibre saved $30,000 by choosing a cloud-based solution rather than buying a new server. The services helped them save money - their ongoing IT bills are also down by $1000 a month.
After the introduction of Microsoft Office 365, Calibre Real Estate staff can now access some of the tools they need to collaborate effectively online, which has helped to increase their responsiveness and professionalism.
With video meetings and the easy sharing of documents, Calibre were also able to streamline their on-going management of the employee start up process. Adding new employees to the pool of operators is just a matter of adding them to the list and expanding the allowance of workers.
