SHI’s Professional service level support eliminated hidden costs and improved our customer’s Azure Secure Score.
When Princess House, a premiere maker of cookware, cutlery, nutritional products, and more, faced a significant outage of their ecommerce site, they discovered their existing Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) Basic service level could not efficiently bring their operations back online in the time needed. The incident, which occurred on a Sunday, had a reported down time of at least eight hours.
Princess House needed faster SLAs and expert-level support to ensure future outages could be mitigated or avoided entirely.
SHI’s Cloud Adoption and Customer Success teams initiated a discovery call to compare Princess House’s needs against the gaps in their existing support. Our experts determined Princess House could bolster their Azure uptime by leveraging the technical resources available via SHI’s Professional service level.
In addition to features available in their existing Basic service level, Professional would add:
- Phone, email, and ticketing access to level two and three support engineers.
- A designated Technical Account Manager (TAM) providing regular service reviews and serving as a day-to-day escalation point.
- An annual architecture review ensuring they leverage the latest technical and operational best practices.
This level of support would enable Princess House to maintain hands-on control of their environment while still accessing SHI’s certified Azure experts when needed.
Princess House moved forward with SHI’s Professional service level. Within just two months, the kitchenware brand saw a 4% increase in their Secure Score, indicating we quickly took significant steps to improve their security posture.
With the help of their new dedicated TAM, Princess House has also been able to:
- Identify and delete unattached disks in their Azure environment, saving previously hidden costs.
- Plan the implementation of Azure Reserved Instances, unlocking additional savings.
- Expand their Azure environment and commit to operating 100% cloud-native.
