Vertical: Finance
Core Activity: Corporate investment and growth strategy, operational improvements and targeted acquisitions.
Employees: 30

The Challenge

Lyceum Capital had an expensive and complicated incumbent private-cloud solution, which was over-engineered and inflexible.

The IT environment was also restrictive in terms of allowing Users to work from anywhere and limited the adoption of new cloud technologies. A greater degree of flexibility and value for money was required.

The Solution

Softwerx proposed retiring the current private-hosted Server solution and leveraging the benefits of the Microsoft Office 365 stack.

All Users and workloads were migrated to Microsoft Azure, Microsoft Office 365, SharePoint Online and Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online.

The project was completed in a matter of weeks.

The Outcome

Lyceum Capital now has a future-proofed IT infrastructure solution that no longer has a reliance on local Servers.

All employees can work from anywhere with an internet connection and the adoption of new technologies can be easily accommodated. A separate benefit has been a reduction in cost.

Softwerx adopted a straight-forward approach to the design of our new IT Systems and infrastructure – and then did an excellent job of making the necessary practical changes, with minimal drama or disruption to the business.
