Ingram Micro to Offer SkyKick's Automated Cloud Migration Suite

With Agreement, SkyKick Teams With World's Largest Wholesale Technology Distributor to Expand Market Reach and Enable IT Solution Providers to Move Their Customers to Microsoft Office 365

SEATTLE, WA and WILLIAMSVILLE, NY--(Marketwired - Mar 11, 2014) - SkyKick (www.skykick.com), the easiest way to Office 365, today announced Ingram Micro Inc. (NYSE: IM), the world's largest wholesale technology distributor and a global leader in IT supply-chain and mobile device lifecycle services, has added the SkyKick Migration Suite to its cloud solution provider portfolio. Available as part of the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace (www.ingrammicrocloud.com), the SkyKick Migration Suite provides a new, automated way for channel partners to move their customers to Office 365.

"Migrating a customer from hosted or on-premise to cloud-based solutions can be a major undertaking for channel partners because it requires a lot of time, expertise and energy," said Renee Bergeron, Vice President of Managed Services and Cloud Computing, Ingram Micro North America. "SkyKick's Migration Suite helps channel partners simplify the entire process and profitably move their customers' email, calendars and more to the cloud. We're pleased to offer SkyKick as part of the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace." 

The SkyKick Migration Suite helps IT Consultants, System Integrators, Managed Service Providers, Value-Added Resellers and other IT partners automate an entire Office 365 migration project from initial sales to project completion. Unlike other migration tools on the market that have focused on moving server-side data -- one step in a comprehensive migration-consulting project -- SkyKick helps partners manage all of the essential steps of a migration project. This enables partners to improve sales velocity, reduce project risk and complexity, and simplify the management of the migration project, while providing a high-quality move for their customers. To date, SkyKick's application has helped hundreds of solution providers migrate thousands of customers to Office 365. 

"This agreement with Ingram Micro and its Cloud Marketplace is a major milestone for SkyKick because it expands our reach to enable us to help thousands of more partners," said SkyKick co-CEO Evan Richman. "Office 365 is growing rapidly and we look forward to helping more channel partners successfully scale their cloud practice. That's why we look forward to enabling Ingram Micro's channel partners to help get their customers there in the most cost-effective, resource-efficient and simplified fashion possible."
