Cloud9 Email Migration services
Collaboration with remote users and flexibility to scale up and down users throughout year
Capabilities & Benefits Delivered
Microsoft Office 365 is a fantastic solution which has a range of communication and collaboration tools, from Microsoft Exchange to Lync and SharePoint. Not only can users work outside the office efficiently, but they can also communicate and collaborate with others almost as if they were in the same room.
Users enjoy capabilities such as shared calendars, remote working and access to shared documents for collaboration, as well as the flexibility to scale licence numbers up or down at short notice to support seasonal workforce changes.
Microsoft provides generous discounts on their business solutions which contribute to an overall cost saving for Brent Centre. We have seen an improved service for our Email, as we had service issues with our previous supplier. Office 365 gives users access to the latest version of Office suite as a subscription and allows per-user licensing across 5 PC/Mac and 5 mobile devices. Users always have the latest versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, OneNote, Publisher, and Access for Phone, PC or Mac. This allows our core users to work remotely with greater ease. Occasional workers have been provisioned with a free exchange licence which has helped us scale in a cost-effective manner.
Brent Centre plans to deploy SharePoint to users and integrate this with an access database used.

We found Cloud9 Insight extremely helpful to help set up our Office 365 account and migrating our emails to Office 365. The migration of emails took longer than anticipated due to technical issues with our previous domain host but Cloud9 Insight talked us through each process and gave expert technical advice.
We would recommend Cloud9 Insight for there friendly approach, explaining each process in simple English and non-technical jargon. Always available to talk you through any issues step-by-step. The migration was completed over a weekend so there was no disruption to emails being lost during the working week.”
