“The Microsoft Azure onboarding support the University of Warwick has received from Phoenix Software has been excellent. The Phoenix Team was extremely helpful in walking us through the process of creating and assigning subscriptions via our Enterprise Portal, as well as providing advice on the best way to configure the initial hierarchy to ensure an optimal account structure as use of the service grows. The Team is always fast to respond and willing to jump on a call whenever needed. Knowing that we can rely on high quality Azure support from Phoenix is of great value to us.”

Patrick Ryan, University of Warwick

“We chose Phoenix because of their highly consultative approach at every stage of the tender process. They asked us more questions than anyone else in order to find the best solutions for us. What’s more, of all the companies we spoke to, they were the only ones to suggest the Student Advantage programme and server improvements, which proved to deliver so much more additional value.”

Wayne Longton-Worley, IT Services Manager, Bishop Auckland College
