The STORM Group

The STORM Group may be a small company but as we provide services to large organisations we need a “large company” IT solution.  Alternative Solutions have supplied and maintained our office-based systems for nearly a decade so when the time came to refresh our infrastructure, they were our first choice.

After a lengthy investigation process we decided to retain our own dedicated systems, but we now host them in the Alternative Solutions’ datacentres. This gives us complete control over our IT environment with the added security, improved communications and reliability of supply provided by a datacentre.  The migration to the new system has been painlessly managed by Alternative Solutions at all stages and the advice they have provided together with the ongoing service and support have continued to prove first rate.

Page White Farrer

Page, White and Farrer have used the eDOCS DM document management system and Kofax Capture software for a number of years.  While the products worked, we never felt we made the best use of them with our incumbent supplier, so looked for a company who could improve this.  Alternative Solutions stood out as a company who were familiar with both products and used to implementing them to improve business processes.

After a thorough review of our existing system Alternative Solutions have made extensive changes.  Our scanning operation is now efficient and the core document management system delivers what we always hoped it would do.  There are more changes to make and we are working closely with Neil and his team on this.We have been impressed with the Alternative Solutions approach to our business needs.

They have listened and come up with innovative ideas.  When we needed to upgrade our infrastructure it was natural to talk to them and now our entire IT infrastructure in London and Munich is provided by and supported by Alternative Solutions.

TMF Group

As part of a global project, the Guernsey office of TMF Group needed to move all of its IT infrastructure from a local resource into the Microsoft hosted Azure Cloud.  This included the document management system eDOCS DM, email integration and associated web portals, supplied and supported by Alternative Solutions.

The Alternative Solutions Business Transformation Team worked closely with a worldwide project team from TMF Group to ensure that all aspects of the transition were completed on time.  The migration of eDOCS DM and SQL Server took place without an issue.

“We were really pleased with the way that Alternative Solutions approached the project.  They understood the requirement and worked with our global team to deliver on time and on budget.”

Connaught Care Home

The Connaught Care Home has a long history of providing care and support to the ageing population of Alderney.  The existing IT system was ageing itself and was in need of some assistance to continue to support our range of services. The home decided to move their systems to the cloud and investigated a number of suppliers before deciding on Assured Desktop from Alternative Solutions.

Alternative Solutions moved all of the data from the old Linux system to assured Desktop and trained staff on the new system.  The Home’s accounting package, QuickBooks, is also hosted in the same environment.  With the system moving from on premise to cloud, a few changes were required with the communications infrastructure, also arranged by Alternative Solutions.

We are very pleased with our new system.  The set up was efficient and we now have a systems that remains up to date without the need for large capital expenditure for upgrades every few years.  The team at Alternative Solutions were very helpful sorting out any issues during the transition quickly.
