Case Study

Nobilis Care Group

SMS Case Studies

Domiciliary Care provider with various sites across the UK.

Taking the first steps toward moving to cloud services that meet their needs.

As Nobilis’s day-to-day operations were being impacted, it
became increasingly urgent for them to move from hosted
exchange to Office 365 and Azure. As a result of the
inadequate management of their old exchange server, they
became increasingly worried about the risk of a data breach
from their lack of faith in the security of the old outdated

Azure and Security

Nobilis required a modern well-founded solution like Azure that allows them to use virtual machines and improve security. With access to services such as Azure Bastion, additional security is provided. Seamless remote desktop provides access to virtual machines without any exposure through public IP addresses. Plus, Azure and Office 365 also support multi-factor authentication that provides an additional layer of security when accessing Office 365 and Azure services.

Mobile security

Nobilis’s mobile devices, such as laptops and smartphones, can now be protected with products like Intune and Enterprise Mobility + Security, which allow auditing and device security. Additionally, information protection services like AIP and Acronis Backup can protect documents from unauthorised access and keep them backed up in case of data loss.

Moving from hosted exchange to Microsoft Office 365

With the fantastic work that Nobilis do, communication and organisation are crucial for a successful working day. Office 365 provides them with solutions all under one roof. Tools such as Excel and SharePoint give them the ability to keep everything up to date and organised all in one place, as well as being able to access the desired information at any time. As Nobilis approached various Office 365 providers, Simply Mail Solutions proved to be not only the best priced, but also the best people to orchestrate a seamless transition from hosted exchange to Office 365.

What are the benefits of Office 365?

With Office 365, you have access to all of your files and tools whenever you need them. You can work on documents collaboratively with your team, or from any device – whether you’re at home, in the office, or on the go.
