Moving an integrated group of businesses beyond their current Outlook.

Problem

FTS Group required the amalgamation of seven businesses onto a single productivity and collaboration platform. However, before embarking on the move the source environments included other Office 365 tenants, G-Suite and on-premise storage servers.  

Outcome

Veritec delivered three customised versions of SharePoint Site Collection to meet the businesses requirements including an all-user intranet and knowledge base.  In addition, a structured set-up of a multi-layered site with varying permission levels and user access for more sensitive document storage and collaboration. Veritec provided user guides and documentation to aid the users during the migration to continue performing day-to-day activities in a seamless manner.  

Veritec successfully completed the migration of seven businesses from G-Suite, Telstra O365, on-premises exchange and file servers, into a single Microsoft Office 365 tenant. EMS (Enterprise Mobility & Security) has been implemented to manage the mobile workforce. Yammer and Teams were deployed and are being used successfully throughout the group to support a need for better collaboration. A single FTS Group intranet site was created within SharePoint Online and a new Information Architecture applied to allow consolidation of historic document libraries. A new Win10 managed operating environment has been deployed throughout the organisation.
