CHALLENGE:

Jeremy Evans, co-founder and CEO of Sepialine was using Microsoft Exchange and with the company growing rapidly, he knew it was time to consider another option.

"With our team in multiple locations around the world, Sepialine needed online access for all our email and calendaring. And, I wanted to eliminate the complexity of Outlook configuration," said Evans.

SOLUTION:

When Sepialine CEO Jeremy Evans decided to move from Microsoft Exchange to a web- based service, he reviewed several competitive options before deciding on one clear solution: Google Apps.

Google Apps is the clear leader in that space, delivers everything we need and provides cost savings, which is important in this economy. Bi101 was helpful in handling our migration into the cloud, and we haven't encountered any issues since."

In addition, according to Evans, the company was growing so rapidly there wasn't time to keep up with the technology upgrades and then train the staff on the new software. With Google Apps they could automatically take advantage of the new features as they became available and Bi101 helped keep them up to date.

"Most importantly, I sleep better at night not thinking about my Exchange server or hardware going down," said Evans.

RESULTS:

"Bi101 helped with the first step of taking our business to the cloud with Google Apps," according to Jeremy, "we also just moved our entire financial system to cloud-based technology with the help of Bi101. The consultants at Bi101 know cloud technology and know how to deploy it so I can remain focused on running and growing my business. The move to the cloud for me has meant money saved and that's great; but I also appreciate knowing that our company is running on the latest versions available and our information remains secure."
