Our client is the largest independent Chartered Accounting firm in Queensland, offering a wide range of accounting and business consulting services. As a business built on reputation, a seamless and reliable technology platform was a key requirement in their overall success strategy.

To address the ever-growing need for real-time collaboration amongst their team and with their clients, they required a stable platform that allowed their team access to a comprehensive suite of software tools and data regardless of their location.

Citrix was selected as the preferred application delivery platform, complemented by an organisation-wide deployment of endpoints optimised for voice and video conferencing.



PROJECT NAME: Infrastructure and Workstation Hardware Refresh
DATE: January 2022 – July 2022

SERVER HARDWARE – Cisco Servers with NVIDIA GRID GPU, Flash Storage
ENDPOINT HARDWARE – HP Thin Clients and Elitebook Laptops with dual 4K monitors, Jabra headsets and Logitech cameras
SOFTWARE – Microsoft Windows Server and Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops

To deliver real-time collaboration at 8k resolution with the seamless performance expected of a modern enterprise PC, without sacrificing the security, scalability and compatibility of a server-based desktop environment, NVIDIA GRID was selected. All servers, from session hosts through to back-end databases, were hosted on high-performance flash storage complemented by Citrix’s MCSIO caching technology. The design centred around optimising for the performance of Microsoft Teams, as the core of modern workplace collaboration, in addition to other key line of business applications.

• Workstation hardware was carefully selected through an extensive proof-of-concept phase to ensure hardware interoperability and suitability for purpose.
• All server and storage solutions were configured in parallel to existing hardware to ensure a seamless cutover with no end user disruption.
• All changes passed through rigorous User Acceptance Testing before moving into production.
• The project was completed on schedule and within budget.



The building of a reliable, flexible, and powerful computing environment has enhanced collaboration, improved service delivery, and strengthened reputation with employees and clients alike.
