The Challenge

Beacon needed to find a new web and email hosting company that was responsive to any issues or queries that were raised and faults rectified quickly. The new email platform would need to work seamlessly with Microsoft Outlook and have the ability to secure accounts from the potential of being compromised. 

Why Beacon Land Surveys chose CloudHost

Beacon Land Surveys were referred to us by an existing customer which gave us the leading edge over similar companies in the area. IT industry is heavily populated so we were up against some great competition however ultimately BLS chose us because of our credentials and our friendly yet professional approach to understanding and delivering on the businesses needs.

How did CloudHost respond?

The first thing CloudHost did was to perform an audit of existing mailboxes and configuration as well as gain existing credentials for the incumbent provider. This being done CloudHost performed a migration to Microsoft 365 exchange online and consolidated various mailboxes which meant the customer saving some on-going licensing costs as well as enforcing multi-factor authentication (MFA) on all accounts. CloudHost then migrated the customers website to their dedicated hosting platform where the page response speed jumped in excess of 200% times faster than before.

The Results

Since working with CloudHost, Beacon Land Surveys continue to work with CloudHost on any ad-hoc IT projects they may have including data recovery.  If your company or organisation is looking for a professional, friendly and affordable IT company to work with then look no further than CloudHost Limited - Call us today on 03333 44 6500.
