Scale up, scale out: New Office 365 customers grow with help from the cloud


This week, we welcome Cervus Equipment Corporation and M.J. Maillis Group to the Office 365 family. These new customers chose Office 365 because the cloud will help them keep up with a growing business, both in terms of employees and geography. Let’s take a closer look:

Office 365 Customer Stories Cervus

With 1,100 employees across 35 locations in Canada, Cervus acquires and operates authorized agricultural, industrial, and construction equipment dealerships. The company was using on premise e-mail that couldn’t keep up with Cervus’ rapid growth, which became apparent when the company faced the task of adding 200 employees to its infrastructure due to an acquisition. After evaluating the competition, it chose Office 365 for company-wide email and collaboration in the cloud. The result? Bigger mailboxes, less spam, improved collaboration, a 50% time savings on support and more productive employees. According to Cervus’ IT Coordinator, James Paisley, “We can’t have things go down – we have to make sure our infrastructure is intact for everyday happenstance. With Office 365, we let Microsoft run our email so we can focus on other areas.”
