Thinking about migrating to Microsoft Exchange Online? It could be a good move – if you’re doing it for the right reasons.  Remember, even when your email resides in the cloud, there are still a myriad of administrative tasks to perform such as setting up mailboxes, groups, distribution lists, public folders, policies, and transport rules.  It’s time consuming, and if you have human resources dedicated to these tasks, you’ve probably asked yourself on more than one occasion if their talents could be better utilized in some other way.

We’ve been thinking about this too, and we have a solution. Did you know that select Microsoft solution provider partners like Logicalis can participate in a program that allows us to provide Office 365 applications like Exchange Online packaged with an array of support services? By choosing a partner who can do this, you can literally hand off the back-end administrative functions associated with setting up and managing Exchange as well as all-important, yet time-consuming day-to-day help desk functions – including assisting internal users with personalized tasks like resetting passwords, troubleshooting issues, setting up email clients or individual smart phones – allowing you to get entirely out of the business of supporting email.

Logicalis is both a Microsoft Gold Partner and Cloud Solution Provider, and we recently announced our participation in the Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider Program which authorizes us to offer Microsoft’s entire suite of subscription-based Office 365 products and to support them with a portfolio of enterprise-grade professional and managed services.

Whether you are interested in an Exchange implementation that resides in your on-premise data center or in a Microsoft Office 365 subscription, we are able to accommodate your requirements, fully supporting key implementations with our new Microsoft Managed Services offerings and shortening your time to value.

As a longtime Microsoft partner, Logicalis has extensive experience delivering services that include strategic assessments, planning, design, migration, implementation, validation, and support for an array of Microsoft platform technologies.  We’re kicking off our new Microsoft Managed Services offering with full support for Exchange Online to help you migrate, move, configure, set up, and manage your email infrastructure as well as assist your end users as they use the Office 365 email service.  And we will soon expand our Microsoft Managed Services portfolio to include similar support for other Office 365 applications.  By doing so, we will be able to bundle the purchase of the entire suite of Office 365 products with a matching array of managed support services to give you a single point of contact as well as a more streamlined single-source billing process.
