Rialto Consultancy | Managed Support

Urban has been the IT partner of Rialto for over 15 years and has supported the journey and growth of their business at every level. The latest project delivered was to move the business fully int the Microsoft cloud and retire their on-prem server. The client was already using O365 for email but are now connected to Azure Active Directory for management, SharePoint and OneDrive for files, Teams for collaboration and use all the security features of Microsoft 365.


Business Challenge

Having been a long term client already, Urban was happy to lead this cloud transformation. Urban was best positioned as the strategic, consultative and engineering partner to guide Rialto through the web of services & options to map-out the best cloud infrastructure for their business goals.

The transformation was required to be an efficient and smooth process, whilst the infrastructure and services are entirely moved into the cloud.

Your office in the cloud – Office 365 brings a new order to the thirty-year-old application suite. It features the Office applications you’ll probably be quite familiar with, but it is offered on a subscription basis rather than an as a one-off purchase and included along with it are a world of additional productivity & collaboration tools.

  • Online Collaboration – Due to the ever-evolving modern workplace, the tools and software available can maximise and boost the productivity and efficiency in any business, working together has never been so easy.
  • Internal & external Communication – To maintain efficiency, communication is a vital aspect of any business. Whether it’s internal or external, you need to be able to communicate with anyone.
  • Data Security – Keeping your data safe is the top priority, without the latest tools and equipment, you’ll struggle to stay compliant to the latest regulations.
