Harrowells is a firm of solicitors headquartered in York, North Yorkshire.
In late 2014, pure technology group was contacted by Harrowells, enquiring about moving their IT systems onto cloud. Harrowells had an ageing virtualised IT infrastructure and made the decision that it was time to move to ‘the cloud’. After assessing the market, they approached pure technology group based on referrals and reputation.
pure technology group arranged for a bespoke proof-of-concept, which included test installations of their line-of-business applications.
Dan, IT services manager, commented:
“On the old system, we’d had some problems with BigHand Digital Dictation and several other Line-of-Business applications. When installed on cloud, our software worked perfectly and we were really impressed with the team. Remote dictation is notoriously difficult to set up in low bandwidth environments, such as our rural offices. On ecloud, it works really well; much better than it did with our old on-premise environment”
The cloud system upgrade was completed in January 2015 and a staged implementation was planned. Harrowells migrated all of their systems onto cloud: Exchange, Skype for Business and SharePoint, in addition to legal software; BigHand, MatterSphere, Laserforms and Cost Master. Dan said “The staged migration went really smoothly. The consulting and engineering teams were meticulous in their planning and execution and provided excellent support to our IT team with the software migration. Paul and Ed, in particular, deserve a special mention – they were exceptionally helpful and are a real asset to the team.”
Cloud now enables Harrowell’s employees to have full access to their corporate systems, wherever they are, securely. “It doesn’t matter whether our Solicitors are at client premises or working from home; they have access to our entire system and can use any resource at their disposal. Cloud is enabling us to provide a better service to our clients and be more efficient in our working practices.”
“I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the pure technology group to others. We’ve been really happy with their service and cloud is performing very well for us.”
With over 2000 active users and built on an ultra-fast all-SSD platform, it’s one of the fastest and most robust cloud offerings available today. Cloud enables customers to access their full IT systems from anywhere, all with the assurance of world-class security.
