Restaurant Group Reduces IT Spend by 38 Percent with ProLink

ProLink Systems recently collaborated with an Anaheim-based restaurant group that resulted in a 38% reduction in their IT spending.

This case study highlights how our team helped the restaurant group transition from on-prem servers to the cloud and migrate to Microsoft Office 365.

“Without Brian and the ProLink team, we would still be throwing money away on antiquated collaboration tools and old servers would still be humming in the closet.  Our IT bill is down about $6,000 a month…”

The Challenge

The restaurant group, which consisted of four different locations, was experiencing significant IT expenses due to outdated on-prem servers, licensing fees, and hardware maintenance. Additionally, their productivity was being hampered by email outages and other technological glitches. They recognized the need for a technology overhaul but were unsure of how to go about it while still remaining budget-conscious.

The Solution

We proposed a solution that would leverage the power of cloud technology, specifically migrating their data and applications to Microsoft Office 365. This solution would provide the restaurant group with the scalability and flexibility needed to meet their growing demands, without incurring the same level of expense as their on-prem server setup.

To begin, we conducted a thorough audit of the restaurant group’s existing technology infrastructure. We determined that moving to the cloud would be the most cost-effective solution, and we identified Microsoft Office 365 as the best platform to meet the restaurant group’s specific needs.

Our team worked closely with the restaurant group to develop a migration plan, which included backing up and transferring all of their data to the cloud. This process was executed efficiently, with minimal disruption to the restaurant’s day-to-day operations.

The Results

The restaurant group has seen an impressive 38% reduction in their IT spending since implementing our solution. Additionally, they have reported a significant increase in productivity, thanks to the enhanced reliability and accessibility of Office 365.

By moving to the cloud and adopting Microsoft Office 365, the restaurant group has also gained a more secure and resilient IT infrastructure. With regular software updates and automatic backups, they no longer have to worry about costly downtime due to system failures or data loss.


At ProLink Systems, we are proud to have helped the Anaheim restaurant group achieve their technology goals while keeping costs in check. We believe that this case study illustrates the power of cloud technology, and how it can help businesses of all sizes streamline their operations, reduce expenses, and stay ahead of the curve.
