Working to help businesses enhance employee motivation and accelerate growth, Prosperio Group is a consulting agency headquartered near Chicago with remote employees working throughout several Midwestern states. Previously, the company relied on a multitude of software and services to communicate with one another, store documents, and collaborate – including Google Docs, Dropbox, GoToMeeting, and LiquidPlanner.
Since this approach made finding information across multiple systems challenging for workers, the company chose to centralize its content by migrating to Microsoft Office 365 and rely solely on the cloud platform – including Exchange Online for email, SharePoint Online for collaboration, and OneDrive for Business for storage. “Migrating to Office 365 meant finding information would be much simpler for our workers,” said Scott Fouts, Prosperio Group IT Director. “Additionally, from the IT perspective, it was much easier to support our users on cloud services that are fully integrated with one another, and projecting costs was also much simpler working with one vendor.”
Once the company migrated its business content to Office 365 and SharePoint Online, Prosperio Group quickly realized the need to ensure its critical data received the utmost protection in the cloud. Since SharePoint Online’s native capabilities would only restore data at the site level, the company began a search for a solution that could protect its data according to its specific needs. “We needed to ensure that our documents would all be in the cloud whenever we needed them,” Fouts said. “If a single document was accidentally deleted due to user error or a system failure, we needed a solution that could help us get it back for the user quickly and with ease.”
