Highlights

  • ERP, production systems and graphic applications in the cloud and therefore usable everywhere
  • Everything completely from the cloud, no local IT environment
  • Fully redundant system landscape
  • Individual branch offices standardised
  • High performance through state-of-the-art technology
  • Reduce IT costs through consolidation and unification
  • Complete support from the cloud solution to the end device, including fast on-site services
  • All data in certified MTF data centers in Switzerland

"In a close and intensive cooperation with MTF we have realized a very flexible and extraordinary solution for our companies. Internal IT costs have been reduced, processes have been simplified and the availability of the system landscape has been increased. Thanks to MTF's adaptable solution, we are well prepared for future requirements."

challenge

A versatile and modern company like FF Group AG has diverse and demanding IT requirements. These were only fulfilled to a limited extent with the existing decentralised and mostly outdated IT systems at the various locations. High availability and reliability are for the company, which manages its production systems via a single ERP system. The shift operation of the FF Group AG also requires competent support and a fast 7x24-hour on-site service. FF Group AG also attaches importance to a central contact person for all IT matters in order to keep its own IT organisation lean and cost-efficient. Due to the many locations, flexible, location-independent work is also important, especially for management staff.

Solution

The Cloud Desktop from MTF is the perfect solution for the requirement profile of a central IT network within the different company locations. This innovative and reliable application provides the entire working environment with all data and applications - including SAP and highly complex CAD applications - regardless of location. A minimum Internet bandwidth and any end device are sufficient to work. The data and applications are stored in the highly available, certified data centers of MTF Swiss Cloud AG. Cost-intensive CAD workstations are no longer required as the CAD application is offered directly from the data center.
