How Can I Get Help Implementing Office 365?

TechSoup's partners AvePoint and Tech Impact offer Office 365 education, implementation, and management services that can be requested through TechSoup.

  • Office 365 Assessment: This offer from Tech Impact provides an assessment of whether your organization can benefit from a managed migration to Microsoft's Office 365. An assessment would be helpful if you're considering migrating to Office 365 but don't have dedicated IT staff or adequate IT knowledge to migrate to the service on your own. After the assessment, Tech Impact will provide an estimate for how much it would cost to have them set up Office 365 for you.
  • Office 365 DIY Migration Workshop: If you want to move to Office 365 but don't want to pay for a fully managed migration, consider requesting this workshop from Tech Impact. They'll walk you through the migration process and provide you with the knowledge you need to perform your own migration.
  • Office 365 Management with AvePoint Online Services:  This management service from AvePoint provides online management and administration software for Office 365, including SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business.
  • SharePoint Online DIY Migration Workshop: This workshop from Tech Impact teaches you how to migrate an on-premises file-sharing system to SharePoint Online without paying a third party for the implementation . SharePoint Online is included in certain Office 365 subscriptions.
  • DocAve Migrator for SharePoint Migration: This migration and management service from AvePoint helps you move from a legacy collaboration system to SharePoint Server or Office 365, SharePoint Online, and OneDrive for Business.
