Property Consultants future-proof their business

Property Consultants embrace the Cloud and provide staff with a better working experience.

This leading multidisciplinary property consultancy firm is based in London, advising throughout the UK through its 130 staff.

Having already been a Sage Support Client for many years, this firm also opted to entrust their network support to Utilize in 2019, as they felt they were no longer receiving any clear direction or IT strategy from the incumbent provider. What the company needed at this time was some guidance and leadership to assist with the formulation of a long-term technology plan that could help drive the business forward.



  • Old on premise servers taking up space and reaching end of life
  • The need to provide staff with a better IT working experience


  • Microsoft Azure to increase flexibility, resilience, and security
  • Migration of all data to the cloud


When Utilize took on the management of this Property Consultancy’s IT systems, the company’s servers were all on premise. Not only were these physical systems taking up valuable space in their offices, but much of the hardware was also approaching end of life.

They knew that this legacy technology presented high overhead costs and had become a hindrance to growth, due to the limited flexibility it was offering. The company was keen to embrace Cloud technology with the goal of providing its staff with a better working experience. Discussions with Utilize centred on the benefits of Microsoft Azure in terms of increased flexibility, resilience and security. A decision was soon made to move away from Exchange and migrate all of the client’s data to the cloud.

“The advice, project management and delivery that we received from Utilize was really excellent. With a team of 6 or 7 engineers on site, they worked over weekends, and we always had two guys back on a Monday morning to make sure everything was working.”
