What Was Going Wrong

In short the IT needed a refresh. Computers seemed to run slowly with people sat waiting for screens to refresh and load. Things ‘glitched’ regularly and staff were getting frustrated.

Meller use a piece of software called ‘Workspace’ which is critical to their business. Workspace was being updated and the new version simply wouldn’t run on the equipment that they had.

Whilst undertaking this vital update to their technology we also identified that the business was using old versions of Microsoft Office which would soon go ‘end-of-life’. This presented a possible security problem in the near future. This was a good opportunity to move to Microsoft 365 and take advantage of the added features. This would improve collaboration (especially with remote working) and help individuals be more productive.

What We Did.....

How This Has Helped

What AM Norris Thought

“Your IT have provided IT support to Meller for over 10 years, and we trust their knowledge and advice. So, when we needed to upgrade our main project management system this required a well-managed plan to provide a new server install, prior to the software upgrade.

The new server, software upgrades and data transfers were carried out successfully during the COVID-19 lockdown period with minimal downtime to the business. The new server and software had an immediate positive impact to the way we communicate both internally and externally with clients. Your IT successfully supported Meller through this major IT upgrade.”
