Cloud Migration During Tax Season

This accounting firm needed to replace their aged servers but realized the cost to replace them would be exorbitant. Realizing the need for CPA cloud services, this CPA firm determined to transfer to the cloud as soon as possible. This would mean conducting a cloud transfer during tax refund season — their busiest season. Thankfully, by choosing a Centre partner to do the task, this company would be able to transfer during income tax season without experiencing downtime.

"We had several servers that were getting up there in age. Replacement costs were going to be roughly thirty thousand dollars."

"It made things much easier on us and in that way, it wasn't taking or making us have any down time. We were fully operational during the day once they had done the migration."
