SkyKick Launches Public Folder Migration Automation to Help Partners With Microsoft Office 365 Business

SkyKick Also Releases Project Management Application; Both New Products Save Partners Time, Make Migrations Even Easier

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - Nov 19, 2013) - SkyKick (www.skykick.com), the easiest way to Office 365, today announced the release of Microsoft Exchange Public Folder migration automation for Office 365, and a new Project Management Application, both included as part of the SkyKick Application Suite. The SkyKick Application Suite is the only solution designed to automate and manage a Microsoft Office 365 migration project. It is available exclusively to help partners move their SMB customers, and has helped hundreds of IT partners move thousands of businesses to the cloud.

Public Folder migrations have been a painstaking manual process for partners because they often involve large data sets, complex folder structures and varying levels of user permissions. To date, there have been no third party tools to help automate the process. With SkyKick's new Public Folder migration product, moving Public Folders to Office 365 is automated, reducing the effort and complexity, while improving the quality and making it easy for partners to include Public Folders as part of their migration projects.

In addition, SkyKick's new Project Management Application gives partners the ability to quickly manage numerous facets of the migration project, get real-time alerts about the status of migrations and automate previously manual tasks, all with a simpler and more powerful experience. The Project Management Application is part of SkyKick's newly redesigned partner portal.

"I'm amazed at how SkyKick innovates so quickly to deliver upon the needs of its partners," said Jamison West, CEO at SkyKick customer Arterian -- an IT services business and Microsoft NW Area Partner of the Year. "Automating Public Folder migrations is just awesome -- it will save us hours of effort. Plus the new Project Management Application will further simplify our migration projects, and save us time and money in migrating our customers. They asked us what we needed, and they delivered. I'm excited to see what they do next."

By providing more controls and additional automated functionality with the new SkyKick products, IT partners save time and free up resources to take on more cloud migrations.

"Our mission is to simplify the migration experience for our partners -- to help them sell more and deliver the highest quality migration experience while reducing overall costs," said SkyKick Co-CEO Todd Schwartz. "Adding Public Folder migration to the SkyKick Application Suite while streamlining management of the migration project even further with the release of the Project Management Application is a big leap forward in simplifying migration projects for our partners. We look forward to continuing to drive innovation in automating migration projects for partners."

The SkyKick Application 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 for SMBs. 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 migration for their customers.
