Total Jobs

​​​​​Seamless migration of 400 users in 6 months

Totaljobs Group is the largest online job advertiser in the UK, operating six specialist industry job boards and the cross-industry site totaljobs, carrying over 190,000 jobs between them and attracting seven million jobseekers each month. 

A new system was required in eight months with minimal disruption

StepStone acquired Totaljobs Group from Reed Business Solutions, leaving Totaljobs without any IT infrastructure. They face a choice of either investing in a new physical infrastructure or adopting a cloud solution; either way the system needed to be ready in eight months with minimal disruption and cost. 

The hidden benefit of Office 365 was Lync Online. It has transformed the way I work, at home or in remote locations. Lync Online offers the ideal channel for me to work with colleagues with video conferencing, we can all work effectively with people in other departments or Countries to develop the business.

Totaljobs chose to move to a cloud based solution that offered a seamless, quick migration to the cloud, with minimal disruption and the most up to date Office applications as standard. Office 365 also gave staff the opportunity to work closer with colleagues in Europe through instant messaging, audio and video conferencing as well as the ability to work anywhere.

In just 6 months 400 users over 8 locations were migrated to the cloud with minimal disruption to their day to day business.

Through the new system Totaljobs have now migrated their infrastructure to the cloud, adding functionality and avoiding significant IT investment and ongoing operating costs. They have been able to:

  • Reduce spending on IT with an operating expenditure model
  • Saved employees 20 minutes a day that was previously spent on mailbox management
  • Offered new and improved functionality for staff in the form of Unified Communications
