IT Overhaul for Leading Hospitality Cleaning Provider

A transformative overhaul enhancing the business' efficiency and security.

Our client, Lime FMS, a prominent hospitality cleaning and facility management provider, is a key player in the UK market, serving major hotel chains with a widespread team across various office and hotel locations nationwide.

Facing persistent challenges with their existing IT infrastructure, they approached our outsourced IT services business seeking a robust, centralised solution that would foster collaboration, ensure data security, and seamlessly accommodate both company-provided devices and the BYOD (bring your own device) model.

IT Requirement Challenges

As part of the initial review process with Lime FMS, they raised a number of existing limitations and key requirements that needed to be addressed.

  • Inconsistent IT infrastructure across locations.
  • Limited collaboration capabilities and data security concerns.
  • Need for a solution supporting various devices and a seamless migration process.
  • Desire for a reliable and redundant platform with backup protections.

Syntec's Solution

Our team proposed a comprehensive solution leveraging Microsoft 365 Web Apps to address the client’s specific challenges. The solution included:

Providing access to email systems, SharePoint file storage, and Microsoft Teams.

Data Security Measures

Implementation of necessary restrictions to safeguard the company’s data flow and ensure data remains within the protected Microsoft 365 environment.

BYOD Compatibility

Designing the solution to accommodate the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) model, allowing flexibility in device usage.
