Raymond Group has installed Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 to build a scalable, cost-effective communications and collaboration environment that addresses its current needs and allows advanced scalability to support its future growth plans. Enabling an improved IT infrastructure management across its large network the new solution helps Raymond to effectively serve remote location needs across 40+ cities and towns across the country.

Besides Exchange Messaging, Raymond selected Systems Management Server (SMS) 2003 for 800-1000 desktops for inventory management, patch management of Microsoft operating systems and generation of standard reports. Microsoft Operations Manager (MOM) 2005 and Office Communication Server (LCS) 2007 were also implemented to ensure collaboration and integration with the Office 2007 suite of products.

The integrated messaging and collaboration solution has helped Raymond to reduce costs by 30% as well as to improve operational efficiency by 80%, said the company.

"We needed a more advanced, integrated communications which can provide a faster message delivery and roaming user support, which our earlier Linux based system could not deliver. The security features are much better than those in our earlier environment, and also gives our IT administrator better, more flexible management capabilities," said Vinay Hinge, GM (IT) of Raymond.
