Why Time is Running Out on Hosted Exchange
If you’ve been selling Hosted Exchange for a while, you probably have a few upgrades under your belt. No matter what sort of cloud business you operate, upgrading your clients’ Exchange environment to the latest version is an absolute must if you want to stay competitive. Cloud computing has made technology a lot easier to work with and your customers have grown accustomed to a constant stream of new features and flexible environments with even more integration capabilities. The message is clear: If you don’t upgrade, your competitors will, and your clients will be more than happy to jump ship.
It’s time to rethink your business. Exchange hosting may have been your cash cow for a number of years, but we have news for you. That just won’t be the case in the future. Your clients are becoming more interested in Office 365. This productivity suite includes email services that are built on the Exchange Server. But it also offers a complete set of productivity tools that your customers need and want. How are you going to compete?
Here’s the good news. You can join forces with a cloud provider like SherWeb and upgrade your Exchange clients to Office 365 right away. SherWeb is a partner in Microsoft’s Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) program, which means you can sell Office 365 your way without having to invest in costly infrastructure, maintenance and regular updates.
Here are four excellent reasons why you should upgrade your Exchange seats to Office 365 with SherWeb.
1. Free Migration Service
Have you spent countless hours migrating your customers from an Exchange Server platform? Say goodbye to that exercise. SherWeb’s Migration Data Service team (MIDAS) will handle your client’s entire migration from the early planning stages right up to the final move. We offer this service with every Office 365 plan, and it’s free. SherWeb has migrated more than 50,000 organizations to Office 365 from a variety of platforms, including on-premises systems–such as Exchange, IBM or POP3–and cloud-based systems such as Gmail or Hotmail. Our MIDAS team will have your clients up and running in less than a week with no downtime or data loss. SherWeb currently manages more than 250,000 Exchange mailboxes around the world.
