Construction company office move and Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 domain deployment. These clients came to us wanting to separate they're computer systems from a shared office arrangement and move into a new office building just completed.
We recommended what was required for the wired network and micro managed the communications requirements with the help of Total Communications and Telstra Business.
After looking at their existing setup and talking to them about what their wanted, our proposal was for 4 new computers running Windows 7 Professional, a Domain Server for file sharing and Backup plus additional hardware and software to complete the move. Using only name branded products like HP, Lenovo, Apple, Microsoft, Panasonic, Cisco and Fuji-Xerox.
One of the main jobs was to convert their POP3 E-mails accounts to IMAP accounts and synchronizing all their mail across Microsoft Outlook 2010, Apple iPhones and iPads was the most time consuming.
Then it was a matter of getting the new hardware installed with Windows 7 Professional OS, Office 2010 and then transferring the data off the old computers and configuring the new Workstations to be as close as possible to the way they were use too be in the new environment.
