FINANCIAL CASE STUDY
ABOUT THE CLIENT
Recently acquired, the company’s Effortless Desktop™ users have grown from 15 to over 25. The Effortless Office solution — Effortless Desktop™ and Effortless Defense™ — is used by managers, mortgage brokers, and administrative staff who all need computing resources. They have 3 servers hosted in Effortless’ datacenters in the Las Vegas SUPERNAP facilities, which are the most cost-efficient, mission critical, high-availability datacenters on the planet – All which are hosted in the Effortless ClearSky™ Environment. The mortgage company has two successful locations.
Making changes across multiple locations with varied staff members was frustrating to senior management. The infrastructure was failing to cope with expansion of the business and lack of advanced security, reliable disaster recovery, and data backup – all while they were faced with inadequate speed and efficiency of IT Infrastructure. PCI and other compliance needs had to be strongly considered in all solutions.
A centralized PCI compliant cloud-based desktop that virtualized the servers, applications, and each user’s desktop. Advanced security with Effortless Defense™. Secure sending and receiving of emails with Effortless Encrypt™. Remotely managed Effortless Wi-Fi™ in all locations.
15% INCREASE IN PRODUCTIVITY
Being able to log in to the company’s applications from any location or device allows managers and staff to spend more time working with clients. That, and everything is applied to all the company’s users globally, not one at a time.
90% INCREASE IN SPEED ADDS/MOVES/CHANGES
The speed of adding and removing employees to the system is important to the client. The client employee that brought Effortless in said, “The speed of Effortless is incredible. For example, it now only takes 45 minutes to bring on a new staff member with their Effortless Desktop™. And while we have very little turnover, for the few situations we have had, just a quick call and the crew at Effortless has the account on lock down.”
100% INCREASE IN CORDINATION
The switch to Effortless means that now all users are on the same software and operating system versions. Before Effortless, the client had a few different versions of OS and software running on various work stations. With the Effortless Desktop™ solution, they now have more than 20 users, in multiple locations, all in synch. In addition, licensing and patching of the company’s software is now seamless.
Effortless Desktops™ provide the client vast amounts of secure, SSAE16-compliant storage, with additional always available; therefore, as the company scales up, so does its capacity for state-of-the art storage.
DISASTER RECOVERY & BUSINESS CONTINUITY
Effortless provides disaster recovery and backup at a highly effective rate.
SPEED AND EFFICIENCY
Effortless Desktops™ provide this busy multi-location, small business instant access to the applications they need. The solutions provided by Effortless Office increase the accountability of the staff and the collaborative ability of the client.
Our client makes use of Effortless Defense™ which provides zero-day vulnerability and advanced protection which include enterprise firewall, spam, and antivirus, but goes beyond with sandbox-based detection techniques and a behavioral engine with machine learning. These additional security measures fulfill the goals they have for defense against cyber-threats and protection of customer’s valuable personal data.
