2Plan Wealth Management – Case Study

2Plan Wealth Management

Number of Users: 400+
Services: Office 365 – Exchange Online

Service Outline:

2Plan had an Exchange 2007 Server which was hosted at 3rd party data centre. The system was not sufficiently scalable to allow continually increasing numbers of users.

Instead of investing in new servers 2Plan decided to utilise Exchange Online with Office 365. The system will allow up to 50,000 users and so the overhead on servers was no longer a concern. In addition mailbox size limits grew from 2gb to 25gb. What’s more is that the outlay required shifted from capital investment, to operational expenditure.

Eitex offered the following solution:

– Migrated email from old Exchange server to Office 365
– Provided access to Exchange Mailboxes via Citrix, and directly via Outlook and web browser.

Staff and systems are supported by the Eitex helpdesk.

Moving forward we are looking to implement:

– Consider possibility of utilising other Office 365 services to reduce number of servers
