AUSTIN TX: Highgate Hotels, a hospitality management company, chose Strategic SaaS, a provider of Microsoft Cloud Accelerate Partner and cloud services consulting firm, for its implementation of Microsoft Office 365.

With this partnership, Highgates Hotels can now expect to reduce IT costs and complexity with cloud-based infrastructure. Also, the company’s migration to the cloud will enable its users to access Office 365 and collaborate from multiple platforms and devices, easily.

According to Darrin Pinkham, Chief Technology Officer, Highgate Hotels, “We selected Strategic SaaS based on their deep technical knowledge and track record of migrating enterprises to the cloud. Working with Strategic SaaS will help us to get a fast start and consolidate properties on a centrally managed cloud infrastructure.”

Strategic SaaS expects to complete the full migration to Office 365 within 90 days. Once the deployment is completed, Highgate Hotels will benefit from a simplified, centralized cloud-based infrastructure and its users will be have access to enhanced productivity tools available through Office 365.

As Office 365 is powered by the cloud, users will be able to share and access applications and files from virtually anywhere— a PC, Mac, and tablets.  Quarterly updates to Office 365 features are included as part of the service, enabling Highgate Hotels to streamline software updates and IT administration.

Frank Johnson-Suglia, Co-founder and Managing Partner, Strategic SaaS, said, “We look forward to putting our plan into action and helping Highgate Hotels reap all the benefits that come with the cloud. Our goal is to accelerate results and allow Highgate to take full advantage of the operational efficiencies and ease that comes with adoption of a services-oriented approach.”
