Tybo Group

Tybo Contracting Ltd.

About Tybo:

Tybo Contacting Ltd is a civil contractor based in Surrey, BC and operates throughout Greater Vancouver. Tybo has several major projects going all at once, engaging in multiple townhouse developments, hard landscaping, retaining walls, underground utilities, land cleaning, and more.

In addition to its contracting services, Tybo also operates Canadian Lawn Care Services Ltd. and Weed Busters Ltd.

The Challenge:

The nature of the Tybo’s business means that many employees are usually out at job sites, versus the office and as such, the company required a solution to help employees work remotely and check in for emails, schedules, plans, meetings and other important documents.

The Solution:

GM Solutions installed Microsoft Office 365, which can help companies like Tybo Ltd. with email, collaboration tools such as SharePoint Online, and the most up-to-date software application tools from Microsoft Office. In addition, the solution also includes Microsoft Lync, which connects people via the Internet from wherever they are. If an employee is traveling, they can still access mission-critical documents, email, instant messaging and even engage in live meetings and video-conferencing from their own computer.

Deployment:

The deployment of Microsoft Office 365 was scheduled at various intervals to help Tybo first solicit input from senior management as well as to give the company time to train their staff. While some employees took to the new products rather quickly, GM Solutions helped train people who required additional instruction.

The Result:

“GM Solutions strategy combined with the Microsoft software enabled us to free our staff from the confines of the office and keep them up-to-date — whether they were at a job site, the office, at home or on vacation,” said Shaun Miller of Tybo. “Staff members who live farther from our headquarters were especially pleased and correspondingly morale improved.

“In addition, field staff was able to upload very large files for printing or review without having to email or fax massive documents. A lot of hassles were removed thanks to this installation.”
