Specialist technology recruitment consultancy, Cathcart, needed a rapid move to 100% cloud operations at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic.

We supported by moving on-premises files and folders to Microsoft 365 Sharepoint Online and OneDrive for Business, and moving on-premises Microsoft Active Directory to Azure Active Directory. Using Windows Airpilot’s fully automated cloud-based laptop deployment, we were able to set up Cathcart’s teams efficiently and with minimal disruption.

Our team of experts ensured all Cathcart employees would have access to high speed internet, as well as using Microsoft cloud security for anti virus, anti malware and threat detection.

"At the start of lockdown, we had to move our entire workforce to working from home. We already utilised Office 365, and our business critical apps are cloud-based, but our file storage was local. We put pressure on Lucid to migrate us to Sharepoint, give all our staff VPN access and set up teams instantly, which they did very successfully."
– Director, Cathcart
