As our partner, they were a constant resource, flexible in meeting our requirements and timescales. As a result of Ancoris experience and expertise in helping businesses transition to the cloud, the whole process has been pretty painless."

About the project

Lush selected Google Workspace as the office suite met their three main criteria. First, it is cloud-based to scale easily as the company grows. Second, it fosters team collaboration within the company. Thirdly, it supports a device policy which allows employees to work on any device, from anywhere, at any time.

Then

  • Failing email system required a high level of maintenance and frequent service outages caused productivity to plummet.
  • On premise infrastructure made it difficult and expensive to scale operations.
  • Files could only be accessed from Windows PCs, with no flexibility in the devices that could be used.
  • Lack of collaboration between offices and teams within the company
