Migrate your business to Microsoft 365

We are experts in migrating businesses from their current email platform to Microsoft 365.

Research
The first stage is to review your existing email platform and decide which Microsoft 365 plan is best for your business and the individual users.
Planning
Working with you, we agree a migration plan. We can prioritise key members of staff to ensure they experience minimal disruption. We then set to work setting up user accounts and configuring the platform ready for the migration.
Implementation
Your existing email archive, contacts, calendar appointments, email signatures and everything else are migrated to Microsoft 365. Once the transition is complete, we are available to provide training and advice as to how to get the most from the new platform.
