case study

a success story

“the digital workspace”

Ward Holdings Ltd

the challenge

Ward didn’t have the time to manage the hardware of their current environment and the company recognized it needed to refresh its technology infrastructure significantly


also, operating site-projects (essentially remote offices), Ward have an ultra-mobile workforce


with users having different versions of Microsoft Office installed, even simple tasks became cumbersome and time-consuming 


Ward's ultimate objective was to implement a scalable environment that freed up time and resources so that its employees could focus more on the strategic projects

Ward Holdings Ltd is a Dubai based private company operating within the real estate sector focusing on diversified reit's and acts as an investment vehicle to purchase real estate and hospitality businesses

Ward's key focus is on hotel and real estate management

the solution

oryx services successfully executed Ward’s migration to Office 365 including the implementation of OneDrive and SharePoint Online and trained end users to assure fast adoption and smooth roll-out


the new system’s scalability relieved Ward of the worry that they could run out of disk space or have critical elements of their environment down for periods of time, both situations that they had run into in the past

the results

with Office 365 implemented, cloud applications like Teams and SharePoint have opened up communication lines and increased collaboration


the implementation has reduced Ward’s licensing and hardware costs, while freeing IT from the time burdens of maintaining their environment, doing backups and patching


having employees on one platform has helped everyone work more efficiently, including having critical business information such as purchase orders, invoices and job costing centralized and online
