SherWeb Selects MetaVis Technologies as Its SharePoint Migration Solution

Leading Hosting Service Company Leverages Architect Suite to Migrate External Customer Data to Its Hosted SharePoint 2013 Offering

PHILADELPHIA, PA--(Marketwired - May 21, 2013) - MetaVis Technologies, a provider of SharePoint migration and administration products, announces that SherWeb, a leading provider of premium cloud services, has selected MetaVis Architect Suite as its SharePoint migration solution. With MetaVis, SherWeb can quickly and cost effectively migrate its customers external SharePoint 2013, 2010, 2007 or 2003 content to SherWeb's Hosted SharePoint 2013 offering.

With SherWeb's hosted SharePoint offering growing, its services team received more and more requests to migrate a customer's external SharePoint content to its hosted offering. SherWeb needed an agentless SharePoint migration solution that would allow its existing services team to cost-effectively support its customer's needs. SherWeb selected MetaVis Architect Suite because it offers exceptional functionality and did not require any server side controls to be installed or deployed making it ideal for a hosted environment. In addition, MetaVis was the right fit for SherWeb as the MetaVis management team understood SherWeb's unique needs as a hosting provider.

"With the MetaVis Architect Suite, we are now able to migrate new customers from any version of SharePoint at an affordable cost," said Simon Langlois, SharePoint product manager, SherWeb. "Over the next year we anticipate using MetaVis to migrate hundreds of customers to our SharePoint 2013 hosted offering. More importantly, the Architect Suite will allow us to expand our SharePoint offering over the next 12 months to include services that will help customers organize their content before they migrate to our hosted SharePoint. Migration is the perfect time to organize SharePoint content, sites, subsites, groups, permissions or metadata to make content more usable and improve compliance."

MetaVis Architect Suite combines SharePoint information architecture, migration, and security tools in one platform making it easy to design, migrate and manage SharePoint 2013, 2010, 2007 or 2003 content. With the Architect Suite companies can organize SharePoint content, improve SharePoint architecture and simplify the management of SharePoint.

"More companies are turning to cloud-based solutions and looking for third-party solutions that work in a hosted environment," said Peter Senescu, President and Co-founder of MetaVis Technologies. "That is why MetaVis products support SharePoint APIs and are completely agentless. This makes our migration, administration, security or backup tools ideal for either on-premise, cloud or hybrid environments."
