Activa: Office 365 Migration
Activa is one of the largest and most active home builders in the Waterloo Region. To increase productivity and reduce costs, Activa migrated to Office 365 from on-premises Exchange.
Activa had been using multiple on-premises Exchange 2007 email systems, which were out-of-date and difficult to manage. In addition, Activa was aware that its staff needed a tool that makes staff-to-staff access and communication easier. Activa was also in need of a document repository. Without a central location where documents could be organized, it was difficult for the staff to access to and collaborate on documents.
Office 365 portal and a hybrid server were created to facilitate the migration of Activa’s data to the Cloud.
- Effective Communication: As Skype for Business was configured, Activa’s staff could send/receive IMs and check for staff presence.
- Increased Productivity: A SharePoint portal allows Activa’s staff to save all their documents in a centralized, securely protected location. Document organization and team collaboration is now much easier.
- Costs Reduced: By moving to the Cloud, Activa could reduce hardware and IT support costs as Office 365 allowed all users to be on a single system and be centrally managed.
