Churchgates is a unique and powerful combination of accountants, solicitors, tax advisers, investment managers and financial planners, offering a wealth of expertise under one roof. By offering a comprehensive range of services they deliver bespoke solutions that are convenient, consistent and effective for their clients.
Churchgates faced challenges with an aging on-premise infrastructure, including servers, switches, and firewalls. The servers were nearing the end of their life and running at 91% utilization, resulting in sluggish performance and degradation of services.
This critical situation demanded an urgent solution to ensure uninterrupted and efficient service delivery to their clients.
To address the pressing challenges, Churchgates decided to migrate its services from the aging on-premise solution to a modern cloud-based Azure model. The firm also recognized the need to replace the outdated switches and firewall on-site.
After careful consideration, T-Tech proposed a comprehensive plan to move the services to Microsoft Azure, a highly scalable and secure cloud platform.
Additionally, they recommended replacing the existing firewall and switches to further enhance the infrastructure's security and performance.
The migration to Azure was a resounding success. Churchgates now enjoys the benefits of a modern, scalable, and secure cloud-based platform. With Azure's Platform as a Service (PaaS) model, the firm can focus on delivering top-notch financial services to their clients without worrying about managing infrastructure on-premise.
The client expressed their satisfaction with the project's outcome. Samuel Jackson, Director, and Investment Manager at Churchgates, shared his thoughts on the transformation, saying, "I was quite dissatisfied with the slow performance of CCH, but since our transition to Azure, I've noticed a remarkable increase in speed. This improvement has not only enhanced our efficiency but also resulted in significant time savings. I must commend the seamless transition and the tangible benefits it has brought to our operations."
This positive testimonial reflects the significant improvement in service performance and client satisfaction after the migration.
Looking to the future, Churchgates is now excited to engage further with T-Tech on the next steps to enhance their Practice Maturity.
By embracing modern technology and cloud solutions, Churchgates is well-positioned to continue providing exceptional financial services to their growing client base.
