Field Furnace is a small business that specialises in the supply of refractory products for industrial, commercial and domestic purposes.
Field Furnace approached Correct Solutions for some assistance in solving an issue they were having with multi-user access to MYOB. Their IT environment consisted of a local area network. They needed to have their MYOB database available to more than one user at a time and with their existing setup, this just wasn’t feasible.
In addition, Field Furnace was looking for a solution that would enable files to be shared and stored centrally, company data to be backed up securely, enable everyone access to the internet and provide an email platform that allowed users to enjoy the full Outlook experience – access to emails, shared calendars and contacts, tasks etc. Field Furnace also recognised they really needed to update an aging fleet of PCs that had been accumulated over time and consisted of a mix of consumer PCs and white boxes.
Due to Field Furnace’s size and growth projections, Correct Solutions felt that Windows Server 2008 Foundation would be a perfect fit for this client’s needs. In conjunction with the Microsoft BPOS suite, Windows Server 2008 Foundation – deployed on a HP ProLiant Server – met all of the client’s requirements, providing a stable, secure IT platform to support the business.
Field Furnace also took Correct’s advice when it came to upgrading their PC fleet. HP Business PCs enable them to benefit from longer product life cycles, reliable, well-tested hardware and longer standard warranty options, as well as energy-efficient designs that reduce their power consumption.
Correct were able to configure MYOB to run in a Terminal Services environment on the Foundation Server platform; with Remote Desktop Services enabled for each user, Field Furnace can now easily and efficient access their MYOB data base in a concurrent manner, reliably from their HP Business PCs.
