accounting)
Added file storage for new projects
Support for customer service demands
Growth for us means more employees, more
email and file storage… more IT investment.
You need to get the most
value from every investment
you make…

“If we hadn’t partnered
with XCentral and
upgraded to the latest
Microsoft technology,
this business model shift
would not have been
possible.”
Benn Murphy, Director, Clarke Murphy Print
Gained scalability via built-in virtualization with
Hyper-V and seamless expansion to Microsoft Azure
Deployed business-critical applications and enhanced
mobile access – all with a single, integrated solution
Minimized training costs thanks to intuitive and
familiar user experience

Printing firm achieves
significant ROI with a
single IT investment
To deploy a new application that would
enable customers to submit, review, and
monitor jobs online, Clarke Murphy Print had
to update their technology.
Their Microsoft partner, XCentral, helped
them upgrade to the latest Microsoft
technology across desktop, server, mobile,
and cloud – in about 10 hours – with minimal
end-user training required.
The result: Employees are 30-40% more
productive with Windows 8. Sales
conversions have increased 20% thanks to
faster service and new online capabilities.

“Our computers are
our lifeline. When
Hurricane Sandy hit,
Hyper-V Replica saved
our business.”
Aaron I. Katsman, Owner, Law Offices
of Aaron I. Katsman
Delivered uninterrupted customer service despite a
natural disaster that could have impacted business
continuity
Increased IT agility and reduced costs with virtual servers
desktops running on consolidated hardware
Gained time to focus on growing the business by reducing
IT hassles and improving system performance

Legal firm sails through
Hurricane Sandy with
Windows Server
IT at the Law Offices of Aaron I. Katsman
couldn’t keep up with the firm’s growth. Slow
performance and the need to frequently
restart servers significantly reduced
productivity.
Microsoft partner WorkITsafe deployed
Windows Server 2012, using Hyper-V to
create virtual servers and desktop computers.
They set up automatic backup and failover
capabilities to guard against disaster.
The result: During Hurricane Sandy,
employees served customers from home
– without even realizing they were using
the failover system.
Be prepared for the unexpected
Backup vs. Disaster Recovery: What’s the Difference?
Backup
Protect your files quickly and simply
– the first line of defense
Disaster Recovery
Protect your files AND minimize
business disruption
• Save copies of your files to a
second location
• Keep a replica of your entire server
and keep it updated frequently
• Quickly restore your files
when accidentally deleted
or lost
• Get your applications and
services back up and
running in minutes
Together, two complementary layers of protection
for your business

Your employees need to access on-site applications
from remote locations
Remote PCs & Devices
On-Site Applications
CRM
Accounting
They want access from remote PCs and
mobile devices to business applications
hosted on-site.
You want to make sure your data is secure in
light of:
Product
database
HR
• Risk of lost or stolen laptops.
• Use of personal devices at work.
• Lack of control over who can access what.
The challenge is to enable your people to be productive anywhere, while
maintaining the peace of mind that your data is protected.

Offer remote
access with
greater
peace-of-mind
Remotely access
applications while
keeping company data
on the server, where it is
backed up and up-todate.
HR
CRM
Use capabilities in Windows Server 2012 R2 to enable easy
remote access to applications, like accounting and CRM, that
are hosted on-site – or in the cloud.
Have the peace of mind that sensitive data is kept
on the server, not the laptop or device.
Offer a more seamless, “local-like” remote computing
experience.

“We have a lot of passionate
experts in different locations
who want to connect with each
other. We need our people to
feel like they’re part of the

Toole Design Group specializes in bicycle and

small, regional offices located far from HQ and
rapid growth, their IT solution – based on Google
Apps and Linux – could not deliver the ease of
collaboration and reliability they needed.
Provided real-time document collaboration and sharing with
consistent formatting across devices
With the help of District Computers, Toole Design
Group moved to a system based on Office 365,
Windows Server 2012 R2 and Microsoft Azure.
Enabled access to the same file structures and versions
across all locations with DFSR replication
The result: Specialists inside the company

JARCHEM delayed an IT investment for many
years, resulting in system conflicts, business

Fun fitness pioneer
keeps business
bouncing forward
The global success of their indoor
trampoline park concept spurred
rapid growth at Sky Zone, but their
productivity tools couldn’t scale.
They called on Microsoft partner
CorpInfo to help them move to a
unified cloud productivity solution:
Office 365.
The result: Sky Zone now has a
reliable, integrated productivity
platform that will grow with their
needs no matter how big they get.
