Modern Cloud Technology Compounds Success for Large Chemical Distributor
Veseris was given only eighteen (18) months to transition their brand new $400+ million enterprise off a legacy IT system. Veseris chose Microsoft Cloud and Velosio as its partner based on Velosio’s experience with Microsoft Cloud solutions.
Velosio and Veseris took the entire system live on time throughout locations spanning the US and Canada. Velosio also migrated over 500 users to M365 and continues to deliver desktop support services for Veseris.
“We have far more visibility now. We have tools to show what’s happening with our supply chain in real time, including the people who work in the stores in their warehouses. Of course, they have to do the physical work on site, but from a corporate shared services perspective, they can work remotely and take advantage of the cloud-based system.”
– Nawaz Shaik, CIO, Veseris
