"With the rise of cloud computing, companies are turning to hosted solutions such as BPOS to reduce the burden on their IT departments and lower overall software maintenance costs," said Steven Pogrebivsky, CEO and Co-founder of MetaVis Technologies. "Migrator can help expedite and simplify BPOS migrations by making sure that all content characteristics and tags such as document properties, column values and version history are retained and easily searchable. Migrator takes the complexity out of hosted migrations."

Many migration tools are priced to be used only once and cannot grow with a company. MetaVis Migrator is designed for continuous use making it easy for companies to maintain and organize their SharePoint environments. The software is easy to install and utilizes a familiar Windows Explorer interface allowing users to copy and paste and drag and drop items. MetaVis Migrator does not require any components or agents installed making it ideal for a BPOS environment.

The MetaVis Migrator allows users to intelligently copy sites, lists, libraries, folders or individual items between SharePoint environments for consolidation, upgrade or compliance purposes. Users can easily load files from network drives and classify legacy or imported content to unlock the full potential of SharePoint search and navigation. Additional features in MetaVis Migrator include:

--  Copy multiple selected items between folders, lists, sites or servers
    and simultaneously change or keep content types and column values;
--  Copy entire sites (with sub-sites), lists and libraries along with
    their content types and columns while retaining version history;
--  Load files and folders from file system to SharePoint library in bulk
    while assigning them a content type and column values;
--  Change content types and assign column values for multiple selected
    documents or list items;
--  Assign values to mandatory columns during file copy; and
--  Save rules for column mapping as templates for re-use in the future.
