Moving from HEX to Office365

Emma Jobling, Head of Cobweb Sales, writes …

Despite the growth of other communication tools – instant messaging, social posting, etc. – email remains the most used format for organisations across industry and regardless of size. It’s not only the most widely used, but 86 percent of professionals say that it’s also their favourite method of communicating.

It’s, therefore, essential for businesses to be on a platform that bests suits their individual need, and one that’s secure and cost-effective, as well as being able to support the business’s future growth and development.

Cobweb is the UK’s leading Hosted Exchange (HEX) provider, as well as the UK’s #1 leading provider of managed cloud solutions, and while HEX remains an excellent platform and one we’re committed to continuing to support, we’re seeing an increasing number of customers choosing to move to Microsoft Office 365.

Some businesses are fully aware of what Office 365 has to offer, some have a basic idea, while others know nothing about the features – but, essentially, the suite combines the online version of Exchange with the familiar Office features – Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook, for example – and next generation productivity-based services, such as Yammer, SharePoint Online, and the very latest in collaboration tools, the teams hub, Teams.

We’ve, therefore, put together an eBook which looks specifically at moving from Hosted Exchange to Office 365. In the eBook, we cover,

  • The main features and benefits of implementing Office 365.
  • Options for migrating, ranging from self-managed to fully-managed by Cobweb cloud experts. Part of our service is to advise on the best migration method for customers, depending on that particular customer’s in-house skills and expertise.
  • We also look at the support options available, outlining the three tiers of Cobweb Cloud Support that have been specifically created to provide support for Office 365, and again in levels, so that customers can select the one most appropriate for their need.
  • And finally, we include a section on how Cobweb – with our experience of moving over 100,000 customers from HEX to Office 365 – could help your business move, and summarise Cobweb’s HEX customer, Arlington Automotive’s experience of moving to Office 365.

If you’re on a Hosted Exchange platform for your emails, and are thinking of moving to Microsoft Office 365 – or would just like a bit more information about the solution at this stage – download a copy of the eBook, Moving from Hosted Exchange (HEX) to Microsoft Office 365.
