When an AMLAW 100 firm based in NYC needed a technology firm with legal technology expertise, its leaders turned to Simplegrid.
Strong relationships can stand the test of time in any industry. Simplegrid’s New York City law firm client employs over 1,600 people and has provided legal services for the past 81 years.
Simplegrid’s CEO Ahsun Saleem, counted among the MSP Top 250 IT Professionals globally for 2011 and 2012, knows the value of great relationships and being there to help a client in need.
Simplegrid has enjoyed a long tenure providing expertise with enterprise computing solutions, especially the complicated technical solutions found in the Microsoft enterprise desktop, enterprise products, VMware and Citrix technologies.
In its most recent engagement, Simplegrid was tasked with recommending and supporting a high-level Microsoft-based IT solution centered on Microsoft Exchange, Windows 7, Citrix and other technologies designed for law firms. The Simplegrid team met with our client to completely understand how technology benefits every attorney in the organization and the support staff. Having this in-depth knowledge allowed the Simplegrid team to design and make the right recommendation to meet the firm’s current business needs in addition to ensuring that future requirements are addressed.
Microsoft Exchange Server
Simplegrid designed and recommended an enterprise focused IT solution based on Microsoft Exchange Server 2010. Exchange would play a key role as the law firm’s core communication platform.
Microsoft Exchange Server delivers the enterprise-grade security and reliability that our New York City law firm client required. Microsoft Exchange provides our client with email, calendar and contacts on PCs and through smartphones and a Web browser when outside of the office.
Simplegrid also recommended Windows 7 desktops with application virtualization using the Microsoft APP-V suite of virtualization technologies.
Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager
Simplegrid also recommended Microsoft’s System Center Configuration Manager, which helped our law firm client empower all employees to use the devices and applications they require to maintain efficiency across the firm. SCCM ensures that corporate compliance guidelines and controls are maintained. The in-house IT department benefits from a single management platform to manage all physical, virtual and mobile clients, allowing the team to complete all tasks and take care of all users.
Simplegrid continues to provide various consulting services based on the firm’s technology initiatives. “Call Simplegrid; they have the skillset to help us through our most complicated technology initiatives,” said our client’s IT director
