USG People Step into the Future with Move to the Cloud
Staffing specialist USG People helps more than 10,000 employers and 100,000 people per year in the Netherlands with meaningful employment positions and needed a high performant, future-ready IT infrastructure. This was achieved by replacing costly siloed applications into one integrated (internal and external connections) staffing software solution to digitalize all business processes and improve efficiency of all 1,500 skilled staffing agents within Microsoft Dynamics NAV. With it came an improved level of security and stability as additional benefits.
The Microsoft cloud was their logical choice, followed by choosing the right Partner: a Global Managed Services Provider (MSP) and an Azure Expert MSP. By choosing SaaSplaza, USG People ensures their most important and business-critical application has solid security, high performance, and 24/7 global support.
USG People and SaaSplaza, together with Mysolution, designed a cloud native architecture for Microsoft Dynamics NAV2018 on Microsoft Azure. The biggest challenge was the large number of current users and number of pay slips that needed to be processed every week; at any given time, there could be over 1,000 Microsoft Dynamics NAV users. In addition, USG People needs to process about 20,000 salary slips within 4 to 8 hours, every week. To deliver the best performance, SaaSplaza deployed Azure SQL Database, Dynamics NAV Service Tier auto-scaling set and Microsoft Azure Web Apps with Azure DevOps service. This resulted in the largest IT project in the history of USG People being a real success.
