LW Hospitality Advisors (LWHA) is a New York City based consulting firm offering a wide range of management services to hotels, resorts, gaming properties and convention spaces. Due to the complexity of hotel real estate, the firm is staffed exclusively by professionals specialized in lodging and gaming hospitality. Metro CSG assisted LWHA in migrating their IT environment into the cloud and provides IT support services.

Metro CSG was able to react quickly and reliably to migrate our email services into the Microsoft Office 365 Cloud. I would highly recommend Metro CSG to any business looking for a competent IT provider that also understands the meaning of great customer services.

Full Cloud Migration & Support

The Challenge



In late 2012, LWHA had experienced extended periods of downtime due to the effects of hurricane Sandy. As a result, the firm wanted to move away from on-premises hosted servers and into the cloud in order to gain guaranteed up-time and reliability of services. And with limited staff, LWHA wanted to find a technology provider that would also be able to help maintain the environment.

The Solution

Technologies Used:
Office 365, Azure, Enterprise Mobility Suite

Based on LWHA’s requirements, Metro CSG proposed full replication of the company’s email and file servers within Office 365 & Azure respectively. Supported by Azure backup, this ensured the redundancy that LWHA required. Metro CSG now provides IT support to manage accounts on both platforms and has helped scale them as the company size has doubled.
