CASE STUDY:
GRAYERS GRAPHICS

Grayers Graphics are the award winning vehicle wrapping and graphics experts based in Grays, Essex. As industry leaders and very well respected Grayers Graphics are the best in the game for commercial vehicle wrapping. Grayers Graphics needed an IT company could be relied upon and able to meet the requirements to support their growing business.   

ACTION

Grayers Graphics were facing a daily battle with email problems including delayed sending, receiving and emails going missing. an ageing IMAP email platform having served the business for over 10 years it was time for a change. Our recommendation to Grayers Graphics was to deploy Microsoft 365 (Office 365) with Microsoft Teams and OneDrive. 

Data backup was also an area of concern for Grayers Graphics and with a very large amount of data stored on-site meant the risk of loss or corruption was high. Lots of large graphical images ruled out Cloud backup as a single solution so we designed and built a backup system using using replication between two sites. Grayers Graphics now have all of their data backed up off site incrementally allowing for recovery in the event of loss. Along with our deployment of Microsoft 365 each member of staff was assigned Microsoft OneDrive and with their files transferred over this has provided both access anywhere and resiliency should their PC fail.    

 

Grayers Graphics required a reliable service to support their staff and business for everything IT related. A service that met their requirements as a fast paced business that is growing and looking for new ways to improve with technology. 
 

OUTCOME

Grayers Graphics now have Microsoft 365 Business Standard deployed to all members of staff and by migrating they are already seeing the benefits with faster delivery of emails. Microsoft Teams has enabled the workforce to create a central hub for data sharing and collaboration with video and instant messaging. Grayers Graphics Exhibition team can now connect easier whilst working from home and owner Paul Grayer can keep in touch with the team using the Microsoft Teams mobile app.

Grayers Graphics owner and the man himself Mr Paul Grayer was very kind to provide us with a video testimonial. Thank you Paul.
