Due the first pandemic lockdown in March 2020, demand for video calls and collaboration via Microsoft Teams increased rapidly. This caused Armstrong Watson to establish plans to migrate to Microsoft 365, a decision which introduced some challenges with the firm’s existing document management system.
Following a rapid and comprehensive proof of concept, Repstor introduced consulting & technology partner Transform Data to help with data migration from the legacy document management system to Microsoft SharePoint.
Transform Data has years of experience in migrating big data from legacy systems to new environments, with the experience gathered though the years, we have developed the Migration Toolkit.
The Migration Toolkit is a standard/universal methodology which accelerates the extraction of information from legacy systems and has a standard way of packaging and importing information to the new SharePoint Online or OneDrive for Business location.
During the Custodian for Legal roll out, Armstrong Watson experienced the need to execute advanced searches on all information within their SharePoint environment and filter, sort and group information quickly. From the results, users wanted to immediately act on this information.
That is where Transform Data came in with their own efficiency tool; Qwickr. Qwickr is the most effective search tool that allows users to search, filter, sort, group, preview and act on all types of documents within Microsoft 365, SharePoint, OneDrive for Business and nowadays also the users personal inbox.
Furthermore, Qwickr is now used as a more advanced desktop search application that replaces the Worksite Miner tool of Armstrong Watson’s former document management solution.
The more advanced functions that Qwickr provides, such as personal favorites, saved searches and tracking documents for changes, allow users to save a lot of time in their day-to-day tasks.
Toby Woodhead, the firm’s Head of Technology: “We did a quick review of other potential solutions, but Repstor offered us everything we needed – including a strategic step change in our ability to do business, which DMS vendors couldn’t match. Crucially too, Intapp was harnessing our investment in Microsoft 365 and SharePoint.”
“After using it for months, Qwickr is gaining popularity in the business, we are even starting to receive very positive feedback from users that didn’t previously used Worksite Miner. We received the latest version with some specific features that were requested by our users, that I think will make it even better and we’re very happy with the support from the Transform Data team during and after the roll-out.”
