The single biggest revenue opportunity for Cloud Service Providers is as a Cloud Service Brokerage.
We tried to maintain such address books and mail groups manually, but it proved extremely expensive and inefficient, and never had a good acceptance rate by agents. We were looking for a solution that would make change management easy and professional—adding new executives, deleting retired agents, or changing passwords.
The Microsoft partner also offered high system availability backed by a service level agreement. Neostratus impressed us with its depth of experience, local language support for our team and customers, and the self-service features of its control panel—not to mention the low cost.
Cloud Service Providers must find new ways to help SMEs to do business using the cloud, not just cheaper ways. Trust is a differentiator.
Knowing the precise location and availability of our life-saving specialists is absolutely key in emergency situations and thanks to Neostratus’ system, we are now closely connected at all times.
Within only six months of implementing our hosted Microsoft Outlook with Unified Communication Services solution, we managed to integrate our staff communications, save tens of thousands of euros in travel costs, and free up over 1,500 man-days in staff resources to do what we do best – saving lives on our country’s lakes and rivers.
It’s an intense, around-the-clock operation. Our lifeguards are on duty 24/7, providing emergency response at 42 locations around Lake Balaton and all across the country. We perform ten lifeguard courses a year and reach more than a hundred schools with our preventive lectures, with most of our staff working on a volunteer basis.
Developing the system in-house seemed like the most expensive option for us, especially because it was important to keep our IT team focused on other critical applications—the software-plus-services model was the main alternative.
Cloud is an increasingly important part of GTS Hungary’s service offering. With Neostratus we are able to provide world class virtualized services to our business customers in a cost effective way.
The four new services are good examples of advantages offered by the cloud market concerning the time needed for the launch of certain products. It is very important to choose partners carefully and that is why we are happy to have achieved great cooperation with Neostratus who proved to be a professional and proactive partner
