Vimy Resources Limited (ASX: VMY) is a Perth-based resource development company.
Vimy’s primary focus is the development of the Mulga Rock Project in Western Australia. Vimy also owns (79%) and operates the Alligator River Project, the largest granted uranium exploration package in the world-class Alligator River uranium district, located in the Northern Territory.
“Enough is enough” was the sentiment shared by the CEO at Vimy Resources when trying to access their on-premise resources during an overseas business trip.
The system they relied on was an SSL VPN connection, which they found to be unreliable, slow and frustrating. And when the CEO couldn’t access their on-premise resources, he knew they needed a more reliable solution and asked his CFO, Marcel Hilmer to engage with Office Solutions IT to make it happen.
Marcel Hilmer, CFO of Vimy Resources, was frustrated by the unreliability and limitations of the IT system impeding their ability to access their on-site resources while working off site.
“You either got fortunate and were able to do what you needed, or your connection would drop out and you’d spend 5 mins trying to log in all over again…. It became something that I dreaded logging into”, says Hilmer.
The Vimy Resources team knew that something needed to be done so that they could reliably and securely access their onsite resources, but they didn’t have the resources to design it. When the opportunity came up to evaluate other IT solutions, Hilmer jumped on it.
He required a scalable IT solution that would grow with the business; one that that leveraged cloud computing, so the entire team could reliably – and securely access their resources from anywhere, without having to roll the dice in the hope of securing a reliable connection over a fickle VPN solution.
Offfice Solutions IT rolled out a suite of Microsoft 365 apps and services to remove Vimy’s reliance on their on-premise resources and help them to hit their business objectives. Specifically:
The entire team at Vimy Resources are now enjoying the freedom of being able to collaborate, share and access their resources, wherever they decide to log in.
Whether on-site or off-site, the Vimy Resources team can now protect what matters most and instantly access what they need in a secure environment - without having to use unreliable technology to get the job done.
