At Technology Tree, we don’t just talk the talk, but we walk the walk. Check out some of our case studies from previous (and ongoing) clients that we worked closely with to achieve their goals.
Geers Sullivan, a boutique personal and business accounting firm operating out of West Perth, Western Australia, approached us at Technology Tree for assistance in achieving a more agile and mobile approach to their business through modern technology, and an aim to reduce their overall capital expenditure. We identified that their current Citrix solution was proving a hinderance, coupled with their need to replace their current back office hardware at a substantial cost. With an imminent move to a new site, and an emphasis on providing a high level of service to their clients, the solution to be implemented meant minimal interruption to workflow and most importantly, was to move forward in a cost-efficient and effective manner. From day one of our transition, the business operated as usual for Geers Sullivan.
We implemented a Cloud-first approach to all infrastructure, hardware and software solutions, and with Geers Sullivan operating as a Xero Practice for accounting software, they were pretty understanding of the power of cloud technology! Employing the Microsoft 365 suite of services (including Intune, Azure AD and Office 365) as well as Microsoft Surface Pro hardware, we delivered a seamless cloud-first deployment approach to the end users. We recognised the importance of secure and mobile wireless internet on the site and utilised Aerohive Wireless for this, as we also introduced a secure wireless for guests and staff alike. Vocus Fibre was used for voice and data services, to aid with the large amount of data flowing between staff and cloud applications, which assisted the storing of large MYOB and Quicken data files as well as all staff data residing on their Surfaces. Backup services for Office 365 Exchange and SharePoint are provided by SkyKick.
Our integration of software and hardware for Geers Sullivan meant zero downtime during their move, and there was no interruption to any of their own clients - which we believe is important for all our clients. The nature of their work is more mobile, with staff no longer restricted to working just in the office, and now have the tools that allow them to visit, deliver and show in real-time to clients their available services – onsite, offsite or even in the comfort of their local café. The client has managed to reduce their expenditure on hardware and reduce capital expenditure by no longer having a back office (server) environment to manage and maintain. Working closely with Geers Sullivan, we developed an IT roadmap for their technology spend and technology outcomes and continue working with them to further reduce costs down the line, alleviate any concerns they might have and keep their network running so they don’t have to.
Elect Training & Consulting are a Western Australia based training group that specialise in Workplace Health and Safety and offer courses and information for clients to reduce risk and create a safer, healthier work place. Mark Small, the Director and Founder of Elect, came to us hoping to create a modern and user-friendly website that can service all platforms to advertise and sell his services. However, Mark simply did not know where to start! This is where we utilised our web design experts to create a minimal, modern and search engine optimised site to get Mark up and running.
Starting a new business is a pretty daunting and complicated endeavour, with more than enough time-consuming components to consider, and to get yourself and your business out into the public eye is not as easy as one might think. A digital presence, in our increasingly digital age, is more and more integral to the success of a business like Elect, where a simple website can make all the difference in winning clients. We wanted to give Mark a platform from which he could then grow over time as his business progressed.
As a Squarespace partner, we chose to implement a website through this medium. We used a template that was simple, concise and provided a range of options for users to explore, to fully understand what Elect was all about. Using this platform, his search engine optimisation (SEO) is already optimised, and when the time is right, can be built upon using a paid search strategy that is now very common for those looking to bring more clients to their business. The website was also integrated with Marks LinkedIn feed, creating not only a web presence but an important social media one too.
A thorough consultation, effective communication and a talented design team meant that Mark was able to launch his website the same day he opened his training business. We gave Mark the ability to edit and update his site whenever he needs and continue working with Mark to ensure he is completely satisfied with what his website is representing for his business and his brand.
