Red Sea Housing rolls out Office 365
Microsoft cloud solutions helps modular building company to improve handling of corporate data
Red Sea Housing, a manufacturer of modular buildings, has adopted Microsoft Office 365 solutions to improve security and sharing of its corporate documents.
The Jubail-headquartered company, said that it selected Microsoft's cloud service to provide a robust, scalable, communication collaboration and information management platform to manage its global expansion and operations.
The solution was deployed by Microsoft partner LiveRoute, who also supplied Microsoft Lync, as well as OneDrive for Business and SharePoint online.
The service is intended to provide the company with better security for corporate documents that were previously held just on desktop PCs, as well as to provide backup of data. The SharePoint solution also allows Red Sea to improve sharing of documents and to set permissions on who can access which documents.
"Red Sea Housing urgently needed a solution for preventing theft of business information via email hacking nearly causing commercial losses. Office365 addressed that immediately," said Pradeep Parmar, IT, director, Red Sea Housing.
"SMBs represent over 90 % of the UAE's private sector - recent research commissioned by Microsoft reveals that SMEs that use Microsoft cloud services grow faster than those who do not," said Ihsan Anabtawi, Microsoft Office Division Business Group Lead at Microsoft Gulf. "Microsoft is the brand that small businesses trust and use to power their growth to solve their toughest business problems."
