Overview

 

Enchanted Forest is an award winning nursery group that employs more than 85 highly trained and skilled staff. Under the directorship of Mariessa, their philosophy is ‘being the best we can be’. Their success has meant that they now have five nureseries spread across the West of Scotland which are open 51 weeks of the year. It is vitally important that they can securely access records for their tiny customers as well as their parents from any location.

 

The Challenge

 

Enchanted Forest had found their existing VPN connection was letting them down a lot and they were unable to get access to their files stored on the central server too much of the time. It was very important that the VPN links between their various sites and the central server were significantly improved and they found secure hosting for their server. They also needed and IT system which was easy for all staff to use.

 

The Solution

 

We successfuly migrated all e-mail accounts over to Office 365 with a single sign on enabled to reduce the complexity of the IT systems for all users. All files were migrated on to a custom-built SharePoint solution hosted within Office 365. This allowed secure access by authorised staff from anywhere, whether on a company site or at home.

 

The VPN system was compltely overhauled with the firmerware on all routers and connectivity being upgraded where required. We now host their server in our secure comms room, providing a secure and easy to access environment for the equipment.

 

Summary

 

Enchanted Forest now have a network they can rely on while being able to easily access files from any location securely. We continue to support their business as they grow and win award after award.
