Cloud & Online Services

Office 365 and Software as a Service

Adams Consulting Group has assisted many clients to identify, implement and configure cloud based software services. Contact us today for a free consultation to discuss how cloud software can improve your business through better reliability, availability and reliable, predictable costs.


Office 365 offers businesses the benefits of online, hosted email and instant messaging without the risks and expense of maintaining and updating internal servers. Never run out of space or server resources for your growing staff. With 50gb of mailbox space per user, even the heaviest users will have the space they need. Adams Consulting Group works with Telstra to offer Office365 services in Australia. With a variety of plans to suit your needs, with or without online or local Microsoft Office software, and the ability to add or remove user licenses on a month to month basis, Office 365 can provide increased service reliability and availability and reduce your IT support costs at the same time. With the addition of servers in Melbourne and Sydney in March 2015, data sovereignty no longer needs to be a hurdle to adoption of online Exchange services.

Instant communication

Office 365 plans come with access to Microsoft Skype for Business (also available separately): the new combination of Skype and Microsoft Lync, for seamless instant messaging, voice / video conferencing and desktop sharing inside and outside your organisation. We also support other conferencing solutions from Citrix to Box.

Business security, Accounting and Enterprise Resource software

Many of the software platforms you rely on now provide services via the Cloud. Leading internet security providers from Symantec to McAfee now offer managed business security solutions via a web console. Accounting software providers such as MYOB and Quickbooks are following new entrant Xero into providing their software via a web client. Productivity software providers from Adobe to Autodesk are moving into the cloud. Salesforce, SAP, Oracle and Microsoft Dynamics offer ERP solutions using cloud databases and internet available clients.

Adams Consulting Group has direct experience implementing and supporting cloud software packages of all forms. We can advise you whether your next version upgrade of your enterprise software should be to a cloud version. If you’re not using enterprise software, there has never been a better time to adopt. With low ongoing costs per user and without the risk of installing complicated software on your own server, the barriers to entry and the required risk are continually dropping.

Adams Consulting Group can help you use cloud software to improve your business through better reliability, availability and reliable, predictable costs.
