Moving a business to Office 365 is no small task. Migration projects can be tedious and time-consuming, requiring significant planning, project management, and technical expertise. SkyKick is a new type of migration application that manages all the details of a move from start to finish. The result? Reduced time and risk. A seamless migration project. Happy customers. The Easiest Way to Office 365 Moving the Business and the Bits “We started with SkyKick just a short time ago, and have utilized the solution for every Office 365 migration we have done since.

Finally, Account Sync copies all your customer’s account and user data to ensure a safe and efficient transition. And last, but not least, the SkyKick Outlook AssistantBeta addresses many of the last-mile challenges that make or break the overall migration experience. SKOA is a lightweight client app that works with Migration Sync to finalize the migration. It automatically sets up Outlook and retains extras like Address Autocomplete and Email Signatures. It also performs local PST migrations and checks the network to ensure timely transfer of all the company's email data.

  2. 2. "We partnered with SkyKick in hopes of scaling our Office 365 practice at a faster rate... goal achieved. SkyKick allowed us to simplify our migration model; completing more migrations, with less risk of error, and at less cost to the customer." – Thomas Allen, CyberStreams, O365 Sales Division Manager What We Migrate Skykick can move data from virtually any on-premise or hosted POP3/IMAP/Exchange email system. Combined with depth of content, data, and settings moved, SkyKick offers one of the most comprehensive migration solutions on the market. Our Server Sync and SkyKick Outlook Assistant products work together to move customer data and settings seamlessly. Please refer to the chart to see how we move different data types. We don’t utilize DirSync integration when performing the migration. If you require DirSync configured permanently for business reasons, we recommend you set it up prior to finalizing your SkyKick migration order. SkyKick supports migrations from Lotus Notes, GroupWise, or Zimbra on a case-by-case basis. Please call SkyKick to learn more.
