The Problem

Cascades Inc. is a Quebec-based Paper Mill company with 85+ units across North America that was looking for ways to expand in growth areas like hygiene and recycling while maintaining growth in traditional revenue. These plans were affected by COVID-19 and forced the company to be nimble with the tools and processes it used to ensure engagement and productivity throughout its sudden 12,000 employee remote workforce.

The Solution

To continue its journey as a digital-first company, Cascades Inc. understood the need to move critical infrastructure from a premise-based to a centralized cloud model. It was critically important for them to keep optimal control of their technological assets and ensure timely and cost-sensitive IT operations. A private cloud solution was selected by our Migration Specialists due to its ability to ensure security and proactive management, while wrapping IT assets in a managed blanket. Centralized communications assets in a hardened data center were ultimately delivered by our Managed Migration Services as a part of an IT strategy that supported the Company's goals for growth.

The Result

The private cloud solution allowed Cascades Inc. to have control over license usage, consider upgrades as required, and increased cost control. They could now provide a communications platform for employees across Canada, wherever and whenever they worked. The result was a fully-distributed, agile, and versatile business model which future-proofed their operations.
