Chassix: A Cloud Migration Case Study

Merging Into The Cloud

Rightpoint brought two companies together by implementing global Exchange Migration to Office 365.

The Opportunity

The industry's largest single integrated resource for high-quality, precision chassis casting and machining solutions, Chassix was formed through the integration of the Diversified Machine, Inc. and SMW, LLC businesses.  Following the merger, the company needed to combine two disparate mail systems into one.

The Insight

In order to successfully join Diversified Machines and SMW and foster a unified corporate culture, Chassix needed to create a common mail and employee directory system and a single domain name. Rightpoint was engaged to help migrate the two systems into the Cloud.

The Solution

Rightpoint merged the independent active directories and services into a single Office 365 environment. The new system’s features include:

  • Single sign on access
  • Mobile access to email calendars
  • Full Microsoft Exchange capabilities
  • Single directory, calendar source
  • Centralized IT administration point

The Result

The phased rollout provided seamless transition and created minimal disruptions to Chassix's 3,700 employees located in 26 offices around the world.
