T H White – Office 365

T H White approached Bechtle with the need for a better e-mail solution that properly catered for mobile users. They were using a POP3 mail system which worked, however did not synchronise with mobile devices or allow remote wipe & control of devices. With a growing number of mobile users a better service was vital in order to gain better control, such as the ability to remotely wipe devices if they were lost or stolen.

    Bechtle’s Solution

    Bechtle, as a Microsoft Office 365 Cloud Accelerate partner, discussed with T H White the various benefits that Office 365 Exchange Online could bring to their business, including increased mobility, increased security, reduced administration and also moving to an Opex payment model.


    Bechtle arranged a 30 day trial of Office 365 Exchange Online for T H White, which allowed them to test out the features in their own environment and with their own users. Bechtle also covered the different plans and pricing to help T H White choose an option that suited them best and was scalable for their entire organisation.


    The Benefits

    Microsoft Office 365 Exchange Online gave T H White what they needed in terms of a synchronised mobile email solution with world class data protection. The ability to start with a small test group and then easily add users gave T H White the opportunity to properly evaluate the solution and then deploy to new areas of the business in a staged approach, until ultimately covering the entire organisation.


    The Office 365 Admin portal makes it easy to perform common tasks such as:


    • Adding users
    • Setting permissions
    • Creating policies
    • Controlling licenses


    Alongside that, it is simple to add licences for other Microsoft services such as:


    • SharePoint:
    • Lync
    • Office Pro Plus
    • Project etc..


    This allowed T H White to evaluate the products and then easily deploy to the relevant users when needed.

    “When we asked Bechtle about Hosted exchange vs our own exchange server Rich was able to go through all the benefits and price options, then after choosing to start with the hosted version continue to help us with some of our questions at the end of the trial. As we start to renew licences in Office365 rather than traditional licencing for other products like Office, Visio, Project, they are able to quickly give us a price comparison so we can make informed decisions. The whole Office365 experience has been pretty hassle free with users instantly noticing the improved service.”
