SME: Design Agency

“Both Brains have always provided the best IT solutions that have met, or exceeded, our expectations.”


Jon Dunn, Managing Director

Task

As a busy digital design studio, where deadlines are paramount, Spruik required an IT partner that was both responsive and reliable. From basic help desk support to a technology infrastructure roadmap, Both Brains has provided IT support to Spruik since 2013.

Solution

Both Brains manages all of Spruik’s IT infrastructure and in late 2019 carried out a complete technology audit and installation project brought about by their move to new premises. “This project was complex and was carried out with no loss of studio production time”, says Managing Director, Jon Dunn. “Both Brains have always provided great on-going value to our business as well as being a great company to deal with.”

Distribution: VisitorPoint

“When Both Brains opted for the migration to Azure, we easily recognised that this is a good thing with multiple benefits for our company.”


Kelly Harland – Systems Manager

Task

Both Brains recently made the decision to shut down their data centre, move to Microsoft Azure and benefit from reduced cost and management overheads. In the process, the company has also brought its customers to Azure, including tourism marketing specialist VisitorPoint Limited.

Solution

In a migration VisitorPoint describes as ‘almost completely seamless’, both VisitorPoint and Both Brains now benefit from improved security, access to a far wider range of services and infinite scale from Microsoft’s proven Platform-as-a-Service offering. “From our perspective, we can increase and decrease our technology requirements as necessary. Maintenance can be done from anywhere. And as a growing company, having endless headroom without being bound by hardware is reassuring,” says VisitorPoint systems manager, Kelly Harland.

Tourism: Glenorchy Air

“I’d definitely say any business owner should consider talking to Both Brains if they want their IT systems to run better. They have been a godsend for us and our business.”


James Stokes, Owner

Task

Queenstown tourism business Glenorchy Air is a family-owned and operated scenic flight company that’s been in business for 30 years. Rated the Number One tour and activity in Queenstown on Tripadvisor, the business was thriving until the pandemic hit and it scaled down extensively.

Owner James Stokes decided to use this downtime proactively – with support from Regional Business Partners Network funding – to completely remodel the backend of how they ran their business.

Solution

The Both Brains team migrated Glenorchy Air documents, communications and booking channels from multiple systems to the Microsoft 365 Suite as well as migrating Line of Business (LOB) applications to Azure. Glenorchy Air moved over to Teams, OneDrive, SharePoint, additional licenses were added and Multifactor Authentication introduced. Staff training was an essential part of the process.

“The whole system was put into place very efficiently and training was simple but very effective,” says James. “We found Teams easy and intuitive to work with and changing to shared docs pretty straightforward.

“Productivity has increased because there’s no more timewasting on anything, and if we had to go into lockdown tomorrow everything would run seamlessly.”

“The goal was to ensure they had fully integrated and intuitive systems to manage their workload in preparation for business growth when the borders re-opened. Our advice centred around best practice for maximum productivity, including advice on available and applicable business tools.

“We decided to cut back on the number of applications they had in place and focus on maximising use of license inclusions. Microsoft 365 and Azure offer solutions for connectivity, collaboration, seamless day-to-day running of a business and easy scalability.

“Moving to the cloud resulted in easier collaboration for the Glenorchy Air team who are based in different locations at different points of the day, such as James, their pilots, the booking office and shuttle drivers.”
