Seattle – March 25, 2015 – SkyKick (www.skykick.com), the easiest way to Office 365, announced today that its Office 365 Migration Suite is now included as a free benefit within Microsoft’s Internal Use Rights (IUR) program.
Microsoft IUR provides Microsoft Action Pack (MAPs) partners, and Silver or Gold competency partners access to Internal Use Rights licenses for Microsoft Office 365 and other Microsoft cloud solutions, including Microsoft Intune, Microsoft Azure and Microsoft Enterprise Mobility Suite. SkyKick’s award-winning Migration Suites enable Microsoft partners to automate Office 365 migration projects, which reduces costs and project risks, and makes their cloud practice more successful. With this new IUR benefit, eligible Microsoft partners with up to 500 seats can now migrate their own business to Office 365 for free using SkyKick technology.
“Partners that take advantage of IURs and use Office 365 for their own businesses are three times more successful at selling it,” said Gavriella Schuster, general manager of Microsoft’s Worldwide Partner Group. “SkyKick’s Migration Suite helps partners get up and running on Office 365 more quickly and easily so they can continue to focus on what matter most—serving our mutual customers.”
The SkyKick SMB and Enterprise Migration Suites help partners automate and manage an entire Office 365 migration project for IT solution providers, including the sales, planning, migration, management and on-site phases of a customer’s move. Eligible partners can take advantage of the SkyKick IUR benefit today until the end of June 2015.
“We are excited that we can help hundreds of thousands of Microsoft partners around the world move their own business to Office 365,” said SkyKick co-CEO Evan Richman. “Office 365 represents a big opportunity for Microsoft partners to build a successful cloud business. SkyKick’s Migration Suites are a great way to move their business and all their customers with less risk and effort.”
A typical 25-seat Office 365 SMB migration project requires an average of 40 hours of partner effort from sales through project completion , and can vary in time and quality depending on many email system factors. SkyKick’s Migration Suites help partners take control of the migration project, reducing risk and effort, and providing a superior customer experience for the company being migrated.
