Scalable and flexible cloud solution for 140 employees.
The social enterprise "Verein WG Treffpunkt" has been active in the canton of Solothurn since 2004. With more than 10 locations and 140 employees, the non-profit organisation is an established contact point for integrative services such as residential homes, outpatient services and counselling centres. In addition, it operates work and integration businesses such as a café, a carpentry workshop, co-working spaces and a creative studio. The entire IT is based on a centralised and virtualised infrastructure. Since 2014, the WG Treffpunkt association has relied on the services of MTF Data AG and is constantly developing them in close cooperation.
As an innovative, flexible and dynamic company, the WG Treffpunkt association depends on an equally flexible and innovative partner. The complex IT infrastructure and the constantly growing requirements demand scalable and secure systems. The continuous growth of the social enterprise was a constant challenge for IT. The diverse requirements of administration, accounting, the ever-increasing amounts of data, cross-location collaboration and secure data storage could no longer be met with the existing IT infrastructure. Due to the scarce resources in the IT area, a service provider is needed who understands the business model and can look after and further develop the IT in all areas.
With our innovative and usage-based cloud services, combined with full IT outsourcing, we were able to meet the customer's high requirements. Our employees act as contact persons for IT within the WG Treffpunkt, manage it, coordinate and plan new IT projects in cooperation with the team. New requirements are discussed and, if necessary, professionally implemented. The need for a scalable and fully virtualised IT infrastructure was realised with the integration into the MTF Business Cloud, with our two geo-redundant data centres in Switzerland. Connecting newly opened locations is another service we plan and ensure with WG Treffpunkt. Thanks to our scalable cloud model, a new location can be fully integrated within a very short time. We install a stable WLAN environment and a network infrastructure on site to guarantee a secure and fast connection of new locations.
A variety of socio-therapeutic and integrative services create opportunities to develop existing potential and promote social and professional integration. The company is now active at over 10 locations in currently 23 departments throughout the canton of Solothurn. These include a coordination centre, several residential homes, outpatient services and counselling centres. In addition, the association WG Treffpunkt operates work and integration businesses such as the "Bloomell Coffeehouse", the "HuppLodge", the carpentry workshop of the "JurAlphorn", the CoWorking "Commonspace" or the creative studio "Eiswiekeis".
