This platform is a suite of applications that enables all businesses, enterprises, organizations and all small and medium sized offices, to transform their work and to use the most quality products at very affordable cost. Among the many business categories in which Office 365 can be implemented, KIVO LLC, a Flexible Packaging Products Manufacturing Factory in Kaçanik, is the next company which has selected Cacttus as the implementing party of these services.
As part of this project, in addition to the implementation of Office 365, the entire IT infrastructure has also been upgraded. Cacttus sh.a., namely the Department of Basic Infrastructure and Maintenance has also conducted the thorough inspection of the current communication infrastructure and email services. Prior to the implementation of Office 365, Cacttus suggested to check the current state of the IT systems and as a consequence complete renovation of the IT infrastructure has been implemented, which included:
- Upgrade all computers in Windows 10 and migration of the data
- Cleaning all computers from viruses and other dangerous files

- Complete network checking at the factory
- Server Maintenance and Management at the factory
Furthermore, the complete implementation of e-mail and communication system migration on the modern Microsoft platform has been completed. KIVO LLC, based on their needs and our suggestions, has selected the Office 365 Business Essentials package, the cheapest solution in the market for the services provided, which includes:
- Exchange Online – e-mail service in Outlook with 100GB email space

The Office 365 Business Essentials package enables the use of Microsoft services for all businesses and also the small to medium-sized organizations with up to 300 users. With this platform it is possible to switch the email system and save data to the Cloud.
