A large Financial Institution (FI) with more than 2000 employees and over 50 branches nationwide positioned itself as one of the leading FIs in the ASEAN region. It has been on an aggressive technological modernization spree over the last year striving to become one of the top in its category across the country.
Its significant interest in IT investments that enables optimization for nationwide reach has spanned multiple services, from remittance all the way to mobile facilities. It is known to be the first in the country to use a computerized accounting system, and pioneered specialized wireless communications. Yet the FI still needed to do more and transform its systems to support projected growth.
Originally using a third-party email solution, the FI found that it was not business friendly. Necessary functions needed for daily use, such as calendaring, contact management, and task controls, are not integrated and had different interfaces. This resulted in collaborative work being made even more difficult than it already is across branches.
File formatting is also an issue, as the third-party solution files need to be converted to Microsoft Office formats, especially if those files are designated for access and use outside of the FI. As a financial institution, data privacy and security are also critical concerns for the FI and both immediately became glaring flaws for the existing third-party solution.
As the FI also required zero downtime, Softline proposed a migration strategy that would play a vital role in successfully deploying the new platform. It is the only partner capable of supporting a dual platform co-existence migration and its expertise meant a fast turnaround time as well.
Softline believed this technologically-driven financial institution was being held back via the advanced technology it is adopting. The FI was convinced that Softline demonstrated expertise in terms of knowledge and skills in the migration work from other third-party email solutions to Microsoft with zero downtime. In fact, the migration process is a key strength for Softline.
Key IT personnel within the FI were originally keen on the features that the Microsoft productivity suite offered; Microsoft Office 365 Groups as it is developed with collaboration in mind. The tool enables users to work closely in teams when writing documents, creating spreadsheets, working on project plans, scheduling meetings, or sending email.
Further benefits include gaining access to the Microsoft Trust Center and how it outlines key support for safeguarding customer data within its native Cloud storage platform. This fit the level of confidence that the FI wanted to instill in its customers and how it would move to strengthen its market position.
Thanks to the flawless migration, the FI managed to meet key objectives of increased productivity and having more efficient inter-department task tracking. Microsoft Office 365 also allowed the FI an opportunity to reassure its customers with the use of cutting-edge security and advanced data privacy policies.
