Description

This Office 365 assessment is a consultation service to assess whether an organization can benefit from a managed migration to Microsoft's Office 365 office and email platform with Tech Impact's assistance. Read more about Tech Impact's migration service, known as npOffice, at their website.

This offer provides an assessment for a managed migration to Office 365 through Tech Impact. It does not provide either the Office 365 migration service itself or access to the Office 365 platform.

About the Office 365 Migration Service from Tech Impact

If you decide to sign up for an Office 365 migration through Tech Impact following this consultation, it could help your organization to:

  • Save time on configuration. Tech Impact will create and configure email accounts, shared mailboxes, and shared calendars for your organization.
  • Migrate efficiently. Once everything has been configured and tested, Tech Impact will migrate your data for you. Migration to Office 365 can include migrating your local files to an online SharePoint file system that provides access to your organization's files from a web browser.
  • Train users on Office 365. Tech Impact provides training to your organization's staff and volunteers.

Organizations That Could Benefit from This Assessment

Your organization could benefit from an Office 365 assessment 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.  

If you don't want to pay for a fully managed migration and would prefer to learn how to migrate to Office 365 on your own, consider requesting the Office 365 Migration Workshop for Small Organizations or the Office 365 Migration Workshop for IT Departments instead.
