The Ærium group operate across seven offices in Europe with over 100 employees combining a deep knowledge and experience with judgement and a reputation for execution and delivering to their investors.
IT Support & Infrastructure
Omicron Solutions have worked with Ærium over a number of years and were selected to provide IT Support and Infrastructure for their recent office move to their new Mayfair headquarters.
With Omicron’s expertise in Cloud infrastructure and Cloud data solutions during the physical move, all of the UK operations were also migrated seamlessly to SharePoint.
SharePoint Online is a cloud-based collaboration platform that integrates with Microsoft Office. It is primarily sold as a document management and storage system, but the product is highly configurable, and usage varies substantially among businesses.
Business Continuity & Disaster Recovery
Ærium required a security solution that allows users to work remotely as if they were in the office, and to work from any device. Another priority was to reduce costs in the business of running physical servers and storage onsite.
The solution we provided ticks all of these boxes and more. We were able to help reduce the complexity and cost of the remaining infrastructure at the office location. Cost savings are circa £10,000 per year over their previous solution with additional functionality and flexibility.
Another not so obvious benefit is in Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery. The migration to SharePoint means that any access disruption to the office location does not stop business performing usual operations. Their valuable data storage are a risk to the business and need costly backup and replication solutions to mitigate these risks.
‘Installation Expertly Executed’
Gill Baines, Ærium’s Office Manager who was responsible for the move project said this about Omicron:
“The planning and implementation of 365, SharePoint and the installation of new hardware was expertly executed by Omicron and their team. They managed the whole process, which was seamless. Ærium’s Management was so impressed by Omicron that we have implemented their Virtual IT Director service for the whole Group. They are now in the midst of planning similar upgrades at our other offices.”
