Today we continue our series highlighting operator partners who are syndicating Microsoft Office 365 to their customers by highlighting Telstra, Australia’s leading telecommunications and information services company which is enabling greater productivity for its SMB customers by offering Office 365.

Four years of steady growth gave Brisbane-based Calibre Real Estate a promising outlook. The company had added 20 new employees and two branch offices. But continued growth and future profitability also meant the need for better IT. Calibre needed a cost-effective way to ensure productivity for its growing, largely mobile staff. Telstra supplied the solution with Office 365—bringing increased reliability, cost savings, and a scalable platform for growth.

Calibre engaged Telstra to provide Office 365, an integrated, cloud-based suite of Microsoft Office applications based on familiar Microsoft technology. The solution included Microsoft Exchange Server for email, Microsoft Lync for instant messaging and web conferencing, and Microsoft SharePoint for secure file access.

Realtors are tied to their mobile devices for communications and transactions, and IT needs to function seamlessly. With Office 365, Calibre gets 24/7 reliability with cloud-hosted email and file-sharing, using almost any Internet-connected device. Whether workers are at the headquarters office, a branch office, or in the field, they can collaborate, hold meetings, and send large files without delay.

If business continues to expand for Calibre, Office 365 is ready to grow along with the company. The infrastructure can be extended to a new office location in as little as one day, with no additional overhead.
