The Irish Association for the Social Integration of Offenders (IASIO) is an independent company formed in January 2012. It is the only national community based organisation for adult offenders in the criminal justice system with a specific focus on alternatives to both offending and re-imprisonment. This is achieved through the provision of direct services to offenders both in the community and in all Irish prisons. IASIO has implemented a Microsoft 365 Share Point solution to free IT resources from routine administration tasks while providing the latest communications and collaboration capabilities.
“IASIO was renting space on a static server from another company and connecting to that server via VPN,” explains Valeria Bonnie, Accounts and ICT Executive, IASIO. “There was a limited amount of space available and also there were problems with access. With staff around the country we needed a reliable online solution which would allow them connect to their email or other services from anywhere at any time and from any device.”
IASIO chose the Microsoft 365 Share Point solution in consultation with its solution provider, Enclave Technologies as it was the best fit for the organization. Enclave migrated IASIO’s email accounts to Office 365 and worked with IASIO to plan and move and mitigate the risk of moving employee mailboxes. The cloud-based solution provides employees with familiar Office applications, email service and also cloud file storage. It is accessed online by staff around the country and provides one central area to store information securely.
“We no longer rely on a static server which can break down at any point,” continues Valerie. “The new solution offers everything we need. It is designed for the kind of environment we have, with access from around the country/world and different levels of services to match our employees’ needs.”
“Enclave provides a great service at a competitive cost and keeps IASIO abreast of new technological developments which may be beneficial to the organization”, concludes Valerie. “With Enclave we are exploring further options for streamlining the collection of information from staff.”
