The Challenge

In a fast moving environment the ability to respond and be proactive is key. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, The Edge decided that whilst all employees were working remotely, that they needed a platform where their collaboration tools could be easily accessed. The Edge Picture Company were looking for a greater degree of collaboration across the business and able to adapt and communicate effectively as a team whilst remote working.

The Solution

The latest project Twin Systems undertook was a full migration to Microsoft Teams. Consolidating on one platform as a single tool for communication would mean a massive productivity bonus for the company.

Web based meetings and document collaboration are now more than ever important business tools particularly in light of increased home working, all this while ensuring the experience was as near to working in the office as possible. Not only does Microsoft Teams enable you to work harmoniously remotely, it also has built-in security protocols, including two factor authentication to prevent any data from being leaked. This contributes to standards such as Cyber Essentials which the organisation has recently attained.

The team at Twin Systems are a pleasure to work with, providing valuable IT support to our disbursed teams, in a way that is easy to understand, prompt and effective.
