Boh Bros. Construction Co., L.L.C.
Boh Bros. was founded in 1909 by Arthur Boh as a small residential construction company and expanded to include heavy and civil construction. Driven by the leadership of the Bohs, the company has evolved into a stable, growing enterprise employing over 1500 people.
Boh Bros. decided to migrate their roughly 350 email mailboxes from Novell Groupwise to Microsoft Exchange. Although Boh Bros. had a fully staffed, experienced IT department, they did not have the experience with Exchange to undertake the project themselves without considerable preparation and training.
Bellwether recommended our hosted Exchange offering, and within a couple of days of Boh Bros.'s acceptance, the 350 mailboxes were created and ready to go. We supported Boh Bros. staff through the migration process and continue to take care of all the administration and maintenance of the servers.
Hosted Exchange allowed Boh Bros. to avoid not only training and administration costs but also the significant upfront licensing fee that implementing Exchange from scratch would have required. In addition, a traditional mail solution in New Orleans necessarily entails disaster recovery precautions, which can become challenging with a sizeable Exchange environment. Rather than deal with such considerations, Boh Bros. staff is free to focus on more strategic priorities.
