This week, we’re beginning a short blog series that introduces you to businesses across North America who are solving problems by implementing cloud solutions. Each month, we’ll highlight a client and discuss how they solved a business problem with a cloud solution.
Meet Glickman & Glickman, a Beverly Hills-based law firm focusing on legal malpractice, personal injury, and employment law in California. David Glickman founded the firm in 1957. Now run by his son, Steve Glickman, it has grown to a team of 10 employees and operates a branch office in San Francisco.
On-Premise Software and Data Complicate Remote Work
Like many firms around the country, Glickman & Glickman found themselves starting remote work in March, due to shelter-in-place orders. Unfortunately, all of its software systems and data were located in the office, and employees were struggling to access their tools and accomplish tasks.
Looking for solutions, Steve Glickman attended a webinar hosted by Virtual Systems discussing cloud workspace solutions. He reached out to our team, interested in exploring a cloud migration and alternative options like using a VPN to access the firm’s current infrastructure.
Our lead sales engineer, Chris Gates, worked with Glickman & Glickman to determine which apps would move to cloud workspaces and how to migrate the business’s data. The firm weighed its options and decided a full cloud migration was more secure and would provide a smoother, more consistent employee experience.
A Seamless Transition Cloud Workspaces
In less than 30 days, the Virtual Systems team moved everything to the cloud. Glickman & Glickman’s employees could easily log into their cloud workspaces and experience the same look and feel as their office environment.
Steve Glickman commented after the project: “Eric, your systems engineer, was great in setting us up. This is a terrific solution for us.”
