This very successful publishing company merged with a major multinational publishing company and also moved to larger premises in the South East of England. This meant a complete refresh of their IT systems and the purchase of Apple laptops for all their editorial and design staff. Burning Helix was involved from an early stage in 2001 and continued to be involved until 2017 when the company changed focus and started to move their IT infrastructure to Scotland. We supported the company with on-site visits and remote support for staff members located all round the world including Ireland, USA, Spain, Australia and New Zealand. Although Puzzler Media's backend network runs Windows servers and other non-Apple technologies Burning Helix helped them integrate their Apple hardware and software into their existing systems including publishing workflow, fonts, intranet, networking, security, printers and proofing, file servers, email and collaboration servers (Exchange), backup, FTP, remote access, VPN and the iPhone/iPad. In addition Burning Helix helped with the transitions from Mac OS 9 to Mac OS X, all versions of macOS up to 10.12 Sierra. We also helped with licensing, installation and maintaining the running of the Adobe Creative Suite and Microsoft Office software application suites.
