Nashua, NH (PRWEB) April 19, 2012
Enterprise organizations with large infrastructures, that support tens of thousands of desktops, face the daunting task of reconciling large pools of files during an Office 2010 migration. Success requires considerable planning. The wait and see approach where critical file failures are discovered only after Office 2010 has been deployed is both risky and costly. In the case of financial institutions, migrations also require adherence to data security rules and regulations.
ConverterTechnology, provider of software and services to help enterprises capitalize on the benefits of Microsoft Office 2010 without the migration risks of data corruption, offers an effective and efficient approach to Microsoft migrations that engage end users and enable them to select and nominate files for compatibility analysis.
The worlds largest banking institution is currently leveraging ConverterTechnologys Click2Fix for its migration. The only product of its kind on the market, Click2Fix offers significant benefits including:
When companies find problems with their files, they need quick recovery plus a fast, effective response, said Shawn Allaway, president, ConverterTechnology. Many companies rely on a fix-on-fail strategy, which is time-consuming and inefficient. Click2Fix offers a more productive solution that provides a faster means to remediation, while reducing downtime, errors, frustrations, and expense.
Why Click2Fix for the Worlds Largest Bank
Click2Fix provides the organization with the vital project management needed for a successful migration, while empowering desktop users to select the most important documents or applications for easy upload to IT for remediation and status tracking through a single portal site. Click2Fix offers benefits whether companies remediate files prior to deploying a new version of Microsoft Office or remediate individual files after the deployment.
Planning, Regulatory Adherence, Access Control
With a Web browser and the appropriate server address for the portal dedicated to their division, end users can easily participate in the migration process. The client configuration for notifications provided by Click2Fix allows end users to tailor notifications based on the requirements of their department. In addition, the flexibility of the Click2Fix solution allows for localization of the portals based on company requirements, and provides detailed, company-specific guidelines built into the user experience. Email communications are configurable to include clear end user instructions that avoid the need for extensive training.
Throughout the migration process and beyond, each user has day-to-day access to a simple-to-use Web site for uploading corrupt files for analysis and remediation. Once files are submitted, portal operators receive a notification alerting them that files are available for analysis. The banks deployment plan calls for twice-per-day data processing to limit user wait time to no more than four hours. Once processed, file analysis and fixes are automatically available to users, who can access the Web site to review the results, and download the remediated file and associated reports detailing file changes made.
Click2Fix Benefits Following Months of Deployment
The Click2Fix application is designed to reduce ITs workload by empowering desktop users. Instead of expecting the IT team to know which files are important to each user, Click2Fix enables users to select the most important files, upload them to IT, and track the status of their files through a single web site.
Users have access only to the files they upload and automatically receive detailed reports listing all compatibility issues in their files and the changes made. Click2Fix dramatically reduces the scope of the migration effort by empowering user to submit only those files that are critically important to their day-to-day tasks.
