Small Business Migration Suite
Four white-label products to help you plan, move, set-up and manage migrations to Office 365
SMB Migration Planner
Assess, sell, plan — all in one step, no on-site visits required
Gathering the information required to create a statement-of-work and develop the migration plan can be protracted and costly. SkyKick’s Web Planner is a fast, easy-to-use sales assessment, planning and configuration application designed to streamline the process for you and your customers.
Connect to the source server, discover all the Users, Distribution Groups, Public Folders – and more – with just a single username and password.
With SkyKick’s powerful discovery technology you’ll never go into a Migration Project blindly again.
The first step in the planning process is to analyze your customer’s email environment. Starting simply with an e-mail address and password, the Web Planner determines the email server protocol and settings, and assesses system accessibility.
Easily handle complex email scenarios with no programming required! Do advanced migration operations like cross-mailbox data migrations, and advanced email routing in just a few simple clicks.
Goodbye Spreadsheets! The application automatically analyzes the source system’s email architecture, normalizes it, and then displays the results. View and edit mailboxes, distribution groups, aliases, and shared mailboxes with minimal effort.
Office 365 Licensing
Assign the right licenses to each user with one click, easily model out pricing quote for your customer, and get help along the way. No Office 365 expertise or sign-in required.
After the plan has been submitted, keep all the critical pieces in sync
After the plan has been submitted, SkyKick’s Migration Sync technology orchestrates the entire migration project, keeping all the critical pieces in sync. It even automatically adjusts if you or the customer want to change the date.
The application first syncs all your data to virtually eliminate data migration risk. Combined with DNS Sync, we’ve decoupled the data move from the DNS changes so we can start migrating the moment you’ve finalized your client’s plan.
SkyKick syncs the data before, during, and after the cutover date. This virtually eliminates data migration risk and provides one of the fastest, most flexible, and easiest migration solutions on the market.
DNS Sync manages the Office 365 domain redelegation process, accelerates the DNS propagation across the Internet, and is optimized to ensure zero downtime. If required, you can perform the DNS changes manually at the system-selected times within the DNS settings page.
Account and User Provisioning
Migration Sync provisions the Office 365 account and assigns licenses to users according to the migration plan created in the Web Planner. It even assigns Partner-of-Record (so you get paid) and Delegated Admin access.
Ensuring each end-user’s desktop is correctly configured for Office 365
The Outlook Assistant addresses many of the last-mile challenges that make or break the overall migration experience. The Outlook Assistant is a lightweight client app that works in conjunction with Migration Sync to finalize the migration.
The Outlook Assistant automatically sets up Outlook and retains Outlook extras like Address Autocomplete and Email Signatures. It migrates PSTs and reattaches custom PSTs, ensuring timely transfer of all the company’s email data.
End-Users will be delighted by a seamless, disruption-free migration experience.
With a large number of desktops, often spread over a number of locations, it’s difficult to know ahead of time whether each machine has the right version of Outlook and all the necessary Windows Updates deployed to work with Office 365. Instead of discovering desktop issues, all at once in a post-cutover meltdown, the Outlook Assistant will ensure that each desktop is ready to migrate ahead of time. No desk-side reconfiguration, no finger-crossing, no user downtime.
For the end users, setting up their Outlook means more than just connecting to Office 365. They rely on their personalized settings in Outlook to help them work more efficiently. The Outlook Assistant retains things like signature blocks, Address Autocomplete (NK2), and PST data stores. There’s no need for you to reconfigure each desktop post-migration or configure a hybrid specifically to avoid that effort.
Office 365 Setup
The SkyKick Assistant automatically sets up the new Outlook profile to work with Office 365. It’s basically hands free for end users.
Local PST Migration
The Outlook Assistant is the easiest and most cost-effective way to do a local POP3/IMAP migration. The Outlook Assistant automatically communicates with Migration Sync to ensure that non-duplicated PST data is migrated over seamlessly.
