Jasco Consulting’s relationship with Richers Transport began when they needed assistance with their Telstra CSX environment. We quickly signed them on as a managed services customer and continued to work with them on their environment to provide them with the solutions that were in line with business goals and objectives.
Richers Transport was undergoing strategy road mapping sessions with Jasco Consulting. As part of their managed services agreement, Jasco discovered that Richers was utilising outdated and aging technology which posed several security threats and support concerns. There was a clear need for modernised solutions within their ICT environment, with improved manageability for devices and a reduction in overall costs.
With that in mind, Jasco’s advised a whole of business transformation which included Microsoft 365 suite and the migration from Telstra CSX to Microsoft Azure. This will provide predominately SaaS and software-defined solutions.

Jasco proposed the Microsoft 365 Business Premium Subscription, focusing on employing device management, security enhancements and governance to corporate devices regardless of whether they are in the office or remote. This would allow Richers to leverage the suite of Software as a Service (SaaS) offerings.
Part of the proposal also included the removal of on-premises equipment by utilising Iaas. This meant that Jasco would rebuild Domain Controller, File Print App and Utility Server into Microsoft Azure. Not only that, but also deploy Remote Desktop Services during the lockdowns such as Windows Virtual Desktop.
To facilitate the server migration, reduce operational cost, improve edge security, and increase inter-site and internet speeds; Jasco will provide an internet WAN solution built on FortiGate firewall hardware and Telstra NBN internet links. All this for almost an eighth of the operational cost of the current Telstra MPLS links.
