• Blackstone Solicitors selects Midshire’s Desktop Monster

        • Blackstone Solicitors has chosen to implement Midshire’s own cloud-hosted solution, Desktop Monster, to meet its growing IT needs, enabling continued expansion of the company’s operations.

          A review of Blackstone’s IT infrastructure showed the hosted desktop route proved to be a more cost-efficient proposition as a new server would have required significant upfront investment and ongoing support charges. A hosted solution actually reduced costs and kept investment to a minimum.

          As an existing Midshire customer for over three years, Blackstone looked to the office technology sales and service provider to offer a solution with data security a focus. The company also wanted the ability to regularly add new users.

          Daniel Thomas, Litigation Partner at Blackstone Solicitors said, “our previous experience of implementing a legal specific hosted desktop system proved counter-productive. We were experiencing regular spates of downtime, which was affecting our productivity as a firm.

          “Midshire offered us the opportunity to fully test their platform on a trial basis so we could be confident that ‘Desktop Monster’ was both an ideal fit for our needs and provided 100% uptime. With Midshire’s help, we successfully and seamlessly migrated accounts onto the Desktop Monster platform, for the key decision makers to test and evaluate.”

          The hosted desktop solution, that is up for Best Newcomer and Best Technology Product at the Talk of Manchester Awards (TOMs) this Thursday, works on a Microsoft platform, where little training is required. The Desktop Monster data centre is based in the UK and all data is stored in accordance with UK data protection laws.

          David Clark, Midshire Senior IT Consultant added, “a hosted desktop can bring many benefits to a company including increased security of business data and decreased annual maintenance costs for IT support. It enables users to access their desktop remotely, on multiple devices, including tablets and smartphones, reducing the need to replace device hardware.”
