Jamail & Smith Construction is a heavily technology-driven organization that requires an advanced application stack to support the company’s multiple locations and remote workforce. Unfortunately, the company faced a technology dilemma: its accounting system’s infrastructure – both hardware and software – was too outdated to accommodate the tax codes and other updates needed for year-end accounting and closure. Additionally, the company users were suffering from poor application performance and overall system instability, resulting in significant productivity loss on a daily basis.
The customer was looking at various options for remote application delivery. Jamail & Smith had prior experience with other platforms, but found them to be lacking in terms of feature set and compatibility with certain business applications. Ultimately, the VMware Horizon VDI solution yielded 100% compatibility across the board. Even some applications that were not slated to be virtualized have been successfully converted to the VDI infrastructure for greater customer adoption
of the overall platform.
Möbius Partners migrated Jamail & Smith’s system from an end-of-life Windows7 with Office 2010 platform to a state-of-the-art Windows10 Pro with Office 365 VDI platform for better interoperability and remote delivery of Line-of-Business (LOB) applications. The customer is enjoying faster deployment because new users/VDIs can be provisioned in minutes instead of hours, allowing them to be very responsive to new hires and employee setups. They are also extremely pleased with their ability to use a mixture of devices to connect – PCs, Mac, Laptops, tablets and some smartphones – as it has improved the employee experience
and has mitigated frustration.
Now that Jamail & Smith uses the latest versions of their LOB applications on a much faster and more reliable VDI platform, employees across the company’s various locations are realizing increased productivity and greater reliability.
