Playgroup Queensland Cloud deployment boosts productivity and saves not-for-profit organisation A$34,000 per year

Playgroup Queensland co-ordinates approximately 800 playgroups across metropolitan and rural Queensland. The day-to-day technology set-up wasn’t coping, email was sluggish and the company faced increasing costs to maintain ageing servers.
After staff investigated their options, they made the decision to move to the cloud. Telstra T-Suite provided the perfect solution with their comprehensive suite of Microsoft applications, including Office 365, available in the cloud.
Playgroup Queensland deployed three cloud-based services: Microsoft Exchange Online, Microsoft Lync and Microsoft SharePoint Online. Now every member of staff has easy access to email and company files with a single log on, and with Lync have great collaboration tools at their fingertips. Even better, the organisation has seen a reduction in IT costs per year of A$34,000.
