CheaperWaste are the UK’s fastest-growing waste management service provider.
They had rolled out Office 365 and were looking at continuing the journey of cloud migration in the most secure way possible.
A key requirement of this was the implementation of a modern SharePoint Online site, tightly controlled security groups, and migration of documents from their file server. They also had several batch jobs running on local servers that needed to be migrated to MS Azure.
This was due to be rolled out throughout April, however as COVID-19 begun to take impact the need increased greatly, so this all needed to be delivered ASAP
We worked closely with the IT team to implement a modern branded SharePoint hub site, containing multiple site collections. Each one was configured securely to ensure only users of particular teams could access the required documents.
We then implemented a document migration strategy to ensure all documents were migrated straight over, and existing file servers locked down.
Finally, an MS Azure VM was created to host batch jobs, with outputs going to SharePoint rather than local file servers, and automatic notifications set up to relevant users.
CheaperWaste have a very dynamic young workforce who have really adapted to these new solutions with very few issues. The internal IT team are very pro-active and forward thinking, therefore making the implementation very easy, despite the very tight timeframes.
All of this meant that operations were able to continue seamlessly regardless of staff members being on-site or working from home.
