About Understanding Recruitment

Understanding Recruitment is a distinguished IT and Technology recruitment firm based in St Albans, known for its rapid growth and expertise in the software industry. They specialise in connecting top talent with leading companies across the UK, Europe, and the US, consistently delivering outstanding recruitment solutions.

The Challenge:

Their existing cloud desktop solution had failed to meet the performance and functional requirements of the business and they required a new solution to provide a fast fully supported user experience whilst retaining the scalable low-risk cloud approach.

What We Did:

Total Group designed, project managed, and installed a Hybrid cloud solution to incorporate Microsoft Office 365 with ongoing PRO support. We migrated data from the previously hosted desktop solutions to a local server with cloud replication. This increased the bandwidth to content from 6MB to 1000MB whilst retaining the offsite cloud redundancy. We moved email and contacts and the domain name to Office 365 and set up and licensed all users to Office 2013.  A number of users used XP which required upgrading to support Office 2013.

Technologies Deployed:

Office 365 Cloud Exchange, Desktops, File Server, Cloud, Backup

The Results:

Total Group transformed Understanding Recruitment's IT setup by replacing their underperforming cloud system with a hybrid cloud solution, integrating Microsoft Office 365 for a faster, more reliable user experience. This upgrade significantly boosted their internet speed and ensured data safety with cloud backups, supporting the company's swift growth and enhancing their daily operations.

What Understanding Recruitment Said:

“Critically we were able to work well throughout the migration to the new cloud solution. We now have a faster solution that we are confident will support the business during our rapid growth.”
