Converting a furniture company’s software from on-premise to the cloud
March 5, 2018

The Challenge

A mid-sized furniture company in the US, was engaged by Accordo’s Sales Enablement Team (SET) for a standard License Verification Process (LVP). The challenge the SET faced was to illustrate the benefits the organization could experience by digitally transforming their business through cloud solutions to modernize the workplace and empower employees.

Partnering for Success

Accordo partnered with CDW, the organization’s partner of choice, to consult with them on their use of on-premise Microsoft Office Pro 2010 and 2013 software. The SET was able to highlight the benefits of working with cloud solutions such as Office365 to allow employees to access files from anywhere, at any time, on any device. As a result of this consultation, the customer subscribed to 380 units of Office365 licenses.

Strategic Consultation

Accordo was able to bring value to this customer by educating them on the benefits of Office365 including an overall cost-savings with a subscription-based cost structure versus a capital expense. At the end of the day, the modern technology of cloud solutions will help bring this organization’s IT infrastructure forward.
