The Unique Paper Company, designers and manufacturers of innovative gift packaging and decorative packaging accessories for retail and wholesale. As a relatively new company their resources were limited with no effective infrastructure or room for growth.
To really focus on growing the business they needed to have a system that catered for all their current and future needs. With only a few machines running, no server, the move to a second location and requiring access between the sites, there was a lot to look at. It was a challenging task for Strident.
Microsoft Small Business Server was chosen. It allows the function of larger businesses at a much smaller cost. This was installed on a mid-range HP Proliant Server, with a tape-drive for back-ups, and adequate anti-virus and spam-protection software. Routers were installed for communication between the two sites and access for Strident. All existing data was transferred onto the server to act as a central point for all resources, which all staff have access to with various access rights easily implemented by the administrator.
This solution has resulted in a number of benefits for The Unique Paper Company. The server now manages all information and resources as well as control of storage and backups; faster access and remote access to company information; a stable platform for continued growth and fast and reliable hardware and a safe, secure network.
The stability and peace of mind offered by Strident’s solution along with a support contract means that Unique Paper Company can run their business with the utmost efficiency while focusing on developing the business.
