Workspace

Empower your people to work more efficiently and securely

using a cloud-based workspace

Proact has been a good advisor and has helped us shape a standardised environment where we now place workloads in the cloud, whenever that is possible. One advantage which we noticed directly deals with security for both inbound and outbound email traffic. Office 365 does a better job of detecting spam and malware such as ransomware.”

Proact undertook a comprehensive review of our storage and backup infrastructure and looked to improve on our current environment in every way. The solution has given us greatly improved performance and capacity, providing us with a sound foundation for future growth and simplified management.

Our workspace solutions

Microsoft 365 is a hugely powerful set of tools and solutions. It enables your employees to be better-connected and more engaged, regardless of where they are and what device they’re using. This makes your organisation more agile and enables it to closely follow market developments. It also allows your staff to be more productive and start working smarter, organising their work just the way they want. Migrating to Microsoft 365 is a key step in your organisation’s digital transformation journey. It is usually combined with other changes, like implementing outsourcing or outtasking, enabling your organisation to focus on its key tasks while we take care of all IT-related tasks and processes for you.

Why Proact?

We understand the value of Office 365 first-hand, having migrated to it ourselves. With our experience of cloud migrations, our successful track record in delivering managed services, and our backup and security pedigree, we make the perfect workspace partner. We look forward to helping you at every stage, from consultancy to implementation, through to management and support.
