Totaljobs Group is the largest online job advertiser in the UK. 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.
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 gave staff the opportunity to work closer with colleagues through instant messaging, audio and video conferencing as well as the ability to work anywhere. 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 also been able to save employees 20 minutes a day that was spent on mailbox management and offered a new and improved functionality for staff in the form of unified communications.
