DAC Systems, a Proudly South African national provider of turnkey solutions based on Microsoft products, has assisted a leading supplier of electrical and electronic equipment in the migration and upgrade to Microsoft SharePoint 2013. The result has been a seamless transition to a new environment characterised by a higher level of productivity, mobility and business process automation using Nintex Workflow for SharePoint and Nintex Forms.

The Client is focused on the delivery of high quality technical equipment, support and engineering expertise and went through a thorough due diligence in selected Dac System as the preferred partner of choice.

In order to continue to offer and ensure first tier support of its growth, the Company required an upgrade of its SharePoint environment and contracted DAC Systems to oversee the installation of the SharePoint 2013 platform and relevant configurations.

Multi-tenancy and a reduction of infrastructure costs are just two of the benefits the customer has experienced from this project.

“Microsoft’s SharePoint 2013 offers up a number of key advantages to users, particularly the ability to use mobile devices to share documents, update activity feeds and interact with colleagues. It also adds a new and exciting dimension to the organisation of projects and enables tasks to enrich visibility into upcoming deliverables across SharePoint, Outlook and Microsoft Project,” says Aldo van Tonder, Solutions Executive at Dac Systems.

“Microsoft SharePoint upgrade deployment is a highly strategic choice. Our client’s infrastructure has been upgraded to accommodate growth and this deployment will enable it to run its various systems effectively in order to streamline operation,” he adds.

Dac Systems is focused on helping clients to extract the maximum value from investment in Microsoft technologies. This is done by implementing a tried & tested strategy based on the most relevant technical expertise, a thorough understanding of current and emerging systems and core architecture designs.

Van Tonder has confirmed that SharePoint technology is playing an increasingly important role in supporting the development and sustainability of businesses in South Africa.

“There is certainly an increase in the awareness of how technologies like SharePoint can make a difference to core infrastructures and the benefits of a fresh methodology to enhance project management,” he continues.

Leadership at Dac Systems’ Client acknowledged the level of complexity that characterised the project and complimented the service provider on its professionalism, commitment and expertise, all of which culminated in the realisation of a successful migration.
