Solution

Lanware took SAM from a traditional desktop support environment and delivered a complete virtual office solution using Citrix desktop technology. “IT is normally expensive and hard work, and outsourcing is definitely the easier option” emphasises Paul Carter, Operations Manager at SAM. “With the benefit of a dual datacentre service, we now provide a high availability environment easily accessed by our employees.”

Customer service is paramount, and SAM’s clients now have confidence in a complete Disaster Recovery solution. The service SAM provides to its clients would be uninterrupted.

With a solid virtual office and high availability implementation, SAM now supports a remote office in its entirety. No matter where in the world, everyone has direct access to the same secure environment. “Although the software may be vanilla, it’s the way SAM deploys it which is groundbreaking,” highlights Carter.

Lanware think at a different level, where nothing is too complex. Their vision of building a future proof solution was key. We leverage off their creativity to make the complex simple.
