Areas where Trustmarque has added value to ParentPay’s IT strategy
With a goal to remain self-sufficient and not dependent on third parties, ParentPay was looking for consultative support. In response, Trustmarque worked closely to understand their needs, business requirements and where value could be unlocked.
Allen Bagnall, Head of IT at ParentPay, explains: “Whether on software licensing or hardware procurement, we get the guidance and support we need from Trustmarque every time. A recent example is traversing licensing requirements with Microsoft. Even though software licensing can be incredibly
complex, I have every confidence that Trustmarque will help us to get there and deliver the end result.”
Having the support of Trustmarque’s Microsoft specialists has been instrumental in helping ParentPay to complete projects like the complicated consolidation of Office 365 tenants and their migration to CSP.
Allen explains: “We have been disappointed by previous partner engagements, especially when licensing renewal and consolidation is concerned. However, it was a no brainer to ask Trustmarque to take that on and I haven’t regretted it at all. Trustmarque is really on top of it and I have every confidence our
licensing renewals are fully managed and considered, With no stone unturned.”
“Trustmarque also really guided us through the CSP process to get everything ready – making sure we have the right licensing in place. We are utilising the Microsoft stack more and more – from Azure to Office 365 – and consuming more Microsoft services.”
