Migrating to Office 365

Office 365 is a cloud based email platform which delivers full email, calendar and contact synchronisation across all of your devices. With plans starting from £3.30 per user per month, businesses of all shapes and sizes are choosing to move to Office 365.

Having migrated in excess of 2,000 mailboxes, Foration is well versed in the process of migration. We start by reviewing your existing email system to devise a migration plan which ensures no downtime or data loss. Once agreed, we configure the Office 365 environment and start the data migration process.

Data migration is achievable in two ways; either using our automated tools or manually copying your data. Regardless of the migration route, we ensure you experience no email downtime and can continue to send and receive emails.

On the day of switch-over, we reconfigure your computers and mobile devices to access the new email system. As part of this migration service, we offer free support for 7 days to resolve any niggles or teething issues that may arise. We can also offer ongoing assistance through our Support and Management service.

Enhanced Security and Continuity

As part of the Office 365 implementation, we advise our clients to consider a dedicated anti-spam service.

We recommend Mimecast's Broad Spectrum Email Security for Office 365 to provide a greater level of protection and control than included within Office 365.  For clients with greater needs for email continuity and backup, we recommend Mimecast's Unified Email Management (UEM) service.
