Client: Aaron Equipment Company (A global leader in the Process and Packaging Equipment Industry) Location:  USA Company Size 


Executive Summary

For more than 75 years, the Aaron Companies have been dedicated to one common goal: “To provide our customers with quality equipment, dependable service, and competitive prices.” This customer satisfaction has earned Aaron an International reputation as one of the world’s leading dealers in the Process & Packaging Equipment Industry. Throughout the past half-century, and into the next, this commitment to customer satisfaction will continue to be the foundation for their success. Aaron’s inventory contains the largest selection of process equipment in the industry. Their sales and support staff is comprised of more than fifty professionals dedicated to servicing the customer’s needs. As specialists in equipment procurement, Aaron advises its clients on the availability of equipment from single machines to large plants and processes. When Aaron approached De Facto Infotech for help with their on-premises Exchange 2010 environment, De Facto found that Aaron would most benefit from Office 365 as well as better security and data control.


Aaron has to coordinate a lot of efforts across continents, which isn’t an easy task. The company wanted to help its employees cut down their time on the road and make it easier for them to share best practices and solve business problems, regardless of their geographical locations. For example, giving its sales force a heightened degree of mobile access—with comprehensive, up-to-date information at their fingertips—would allow them to be even more responsive to customers. The company also wants to encourage employees across the company to develop fresh ideas, which is critical to maintaining its tradition of innovation.


When the company approached De Facto Infotech, the Microsoft-partner recommended Microsoft Office 365 adoption. The experts at De Facto Infotech told the company that the adoption would enhance the company’s ability to promote collaboration and simplify the collection, selection, and dissemination of new ideas from employees all over the world. De Facto successfully executed Aaron’s migration to Office 365 and trained end users. The new system’s scalability relieves Aaron of a lot of worries.


Aaron has successfully adopted Microsoft Office 365 for its huge employee-base, all of whom can now take advantage of Exchange Online for email and calendaring. Employees can use Lync Online for full-service conferencing and instant messaging. They can also share ideas, collaborate on projects, and discover new information by using Yammer, an enterprise social network. With SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business, they have the ability to sync files regardless of their location and optimize data storage. Aaron is making the most of flexible licensing and providing Office 365 ProPlus—the familiar Office desktop suite—and Office Online to employees who need access to documents while they’re mobile. Office 365 migration supports the company’s goals of decreasing complexity, increasing employee productivity, promoting innovation, and cutting unnecessary costs while continuing to serve its customers well. Benefits:

  • Reduced duplication of efforts and increased productivity
  • Secured, centralized data
  • Anytime, anywhere documents access
  • Matchless flexibility
  • Better communication and collaboration
  • Efficiency and effectiveness across all levels
