In the midst of their impactful work, Interrelate faced the challenge of an on-premise system, grappling with the complexities of multi-location management. Determined to enhance their reach and streamline operations, they embraced a transformative shift to a cloud-based solution.
Legacy Application Struggles
Interrelate was operating on an on-premise infrastructure, posing challenges such as limited scalability, higher maintenance costs, and potential risks associated with hardware failures. The organization recognized the need to transition to a cloud-based solution for improved flexibility, scalability, and cost-effectiveness.
Navigating Multi-Location Challenges
Interrelate's multi-location departments presented a challenge in terms of coordination and communication. The decentralized nature of the organization made it difficult to streamline processes and ensure consistent collaboration across different locations. The company needed a solution that could effectively manage and integrate operations across various departments and locations simultaneously.
