Florida Virtual School rolls out Exchange Online, and saves $2m

imageFlorida Virtual School (FLVS) is a leader in providing virtual Kindergarten–12 solutions to students throughout Florida, the United States, and the world. FLVS depends on email messaging more than most schools to connect students and teachers because of its virtual environment. However, the school’s aging IBM Lotus Notes messaging system provided limited email access options, and the IT staff worried about rising costs. To solve these problems, FLVS switched to Microsoft Business Productivity Online Standard Suite to gain cloud–based email, collaboration, instant messaging, and web conferencing. FLVS will save U.S.$2 million over five years and be able to keep pace with rapid growth at reduced prices. The number of messaging–related support calls has dropped 40 percent, freeing the IT staff to focus on better supporting employees, who can now access email from smartphones and other devices.
