Dreßler Bau Gained Insights & Control into its Use of Office 365 with PyraCloud
Dreßler Bau is a construction company in Germany with 500 employees across six locations focusing on several areas ranging from industrial and commercial construction to residential housing. The company found it increasingly difficult to manage its Office 365 cloud environment, especially when collaborating with other enterprises. Dreßler Bau was looking for a solution that helps to control and manage its cloud resources in both a streamlined and cost-efficient manner. The company needed insights into the usage of its Office 365 licenses in order to quickly recognize when and where licenses had become available for reassignment. With PyraCloud, Dreßler Bau is provided reporting that allows the company to quickly and proactively manage its cloud resources.
"PyraCloud by SoftwareONE gives us a perfect 360° vision and has also created a new and responsible awareness for the use of cloud resources within our company."

Solution: Implementation of PyraCloud, Cloud Management Module
Dreßler Bau GmbH is among Germany’s biggest construction companies that remain under family control. The company, founded in 1913, has over 500 employees and six locations. Dreßler Bau customers benefit from over a century of experience in areas ranging from industrial and commercial construction to residential housing.
The company specializes in turnkey structural engineering projects, including buildings of cultural and historical significance. Also, Dreßler Bau holds a leading position on the German market for the production and use of architectural concrete.
Dreßler Bau found it increasingly difficult to manage their cloud environment, particularly in support of joint ventures on significant projects. Dreßler Bau approached SoftwareONE looking for assistance. They wanted a solution that could quickly identify when and where Office 365 licenses had become free and available for user reassignment. The company also wished to obtain greater transparency in tracking cloud use. A detailed overview of active or inactive cloud licenses was a central objective.
Dreßler Bau implemented the SoftwareONE PyraCloud platform to address its leading requirements. As an end-to-end platform, PyraCloud helps the construction company manage its software portfolio and compiles a precise report on the use of current cloud resources. The cloud management module lets Dreßler Bau identify license users in real-time to understand and manage how cloud resources are being used.
