UPDATE: SYNNEX Offering SkyKick's Automated Cloud Migration Application
Helps IT Solution Providers Move SMBs to Microsoft Office 365
SEATTLE, WA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/03/13 -- SkyKick
(www.skykick.com), the easiest way to Office 365, today announced
SYNNEX Corporation (NYSE: SNX), a leading distributor of IT products
and services, is offering SkyKick's Application Suite to its solution
providers to provide a new way to move their small and medium-size
business (SMB) customers to the cloud. With the collaboration, SYNNEX
is at the cutting edge of cloud computing technology, adding value to
its partners in helping them transition to Microsoft Office 365 with
SkyKick's Office 365 project migration application for SMBs.
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.
Rob Moyer, SYNNEX's Vice President who is responsible for running the
company's Microsoft global business unit states, "Moving millions of
SMBs to the cloud is no small task, but with SkyKick's technology the
process is greatly simplified, allowing our cloud partners to save
time and money to scale their cloud practices, and our non-cloud
partners to get in the game. SkyKick's proven technology has
established a new cloud migration automation category. SkyKick, in
combination with the SYNNEX Capture the Cloud Program, allows our
partners a differentiated solution to scale their cloud revenue and
"We worked with SYNNEX and SkyKick to migrate our customer to Office
365 from a very challenging hosted Exchange environment," said Frank
Special, Project Manager at Modcomp Inc. "SkyKick simplified and sped
up the migration process with very few issues. The end result was a
very satisfied customer and additional business for our firm."
"This relationship will help us as we continue to revolutionize the
Office 365 landscape," said SkyKick co-CEO Evan Richman. "SkyKick
gets the benefit of the reach of one of the largest IT distributors
with a track record of successfully delivering value added solutions
to their partners and SYNNEX gets access to a powerful new platform
that's changing the way SMBs access the cloud."
Since SkyKick launched its beta application in the middle of 2012, it
has been used to migrate thousands of SMBs to Office 365 and is
currently being leveraged by hundreds of partners to move customers
to Office 365. Traditionally, migration tools on the market have
focused on moving server-side data, which is one step in an overall
migration-consulting project. The SkyKick Application Suite
eliminates this work by helping partners manage all of the essential
steps of a migration project including the sales, planning, migration
and on-site phases of their customer's move to Office 365.
