Which service or software is best for email migration from Lotus Notes to Office 365?
Hello everyone! I am working as a business consultant for a reputable company. Today, I am going to share one of my client’s problems as I am not sure how to fix it for him. So, I need some suggestions on solutions that can help my client.
My client works on the managerial level of the organization. For the past 8-9 months, he is facing various issues related to employees work, revenue, improper data management, bad impact on clients, loss to the company, etc. After spending a lot of time analyzing the complete situation, the company realized that the major issue is with the email client they are using. The company worked on Lotus Notes/Domino Server to manage their business-related chores. To stop the situation from getting worse, the company decided to switch from Lotus Notes to Office 365.
Before moving their data from one platform to another, the company needs to overcome some challenges such as migration of data from Lotus Notes (offline mode) and data present on the Domino Server. In the organization, the managerial level employees use to work on Lotus Notes in offline mode to manage their personal plus business data at a high level. Other employees such as team leaders, juniors use to work on Domino Server. Thus, the company wants to move complete data to Office 365. Moreover, the company wants an instant way to switch from Lotus Notes to Office 365 as they do not want to affect their work. Additionally, the company needs to migrate 8,576 Lotus Notes mailboxes to Office 365 without affecting the budget constraint. Also, according to the company, the migration process should not affect the business hours and employees work. The time provided by the company to migrate complete Lotus Notes/Domino Server data is approx 15-18 days. Moreover, the company does not want to lose any data while in the migration process.
Now, I want to know which service or software should I suggest to my client. Should I ask him to opt for any Lotus Notes to Office 365 migration services or a migration software? Some of the companies that offer migration services and software in my knowledge are Stellar, SysTools, Nucleus, etc. What solution should I provide to my client? Which company offers the best migration service or tool? Please suggest the best approach to follow as soon as possible.
Everyone’s perspective will be appreciated!
Hi Buddy! I just read your whole story and it is the same as mine. A few months back, I was also looking for a way to switch from Lotus Notes to Office 365. Due to Lotus Notes email client, my company also faced work loss, bad relationship with clients, money loss, etc. For me, it was becoming very difficult to handle a big team of employees. Then, I decided to move from Lotus Notes to a cloud-based platform that is Office 365 for seamless data and communication management. However, for me also the major issue was to migrate the company’s data including employees and client data to Office 365.
Then, one of my friends suggested me to use software to move Lotus Notes data to Office 365. After that, I searched on the internet for a trustworthy tool. Then I approached various companies but the major problem was that I wanted a trial migration of 20 mailboxes to check the efficiency and performance of the software provided by the company. Most of the companies were not ready to perform the trial migration. But there was one company named SysTools who was ready to migrate 20 mailboxes to Office 365. After all the satisfaction, I gave migration tender to SysTools.
I gave around 20 days to SysTools to migrate around 6,895 Lotus Notes mailboxes to Office 365. Moreover, my conditions were similar to yours. I do not want to stop my company’s work. Moreover, I also demanded a cost-effective migration. My major concerns were related to data security and data loss issues.
After knowing all the scenario, SysTools analyzed the complete situation and their data migration experts suggested me to go for Mail Migration Wizard to carry out the Lotus Notes to Office 365 migration. Additionally, the company also offered us their migration services. The company started the migration process via Mail Migration Wizard after business hours. Within 10 days they were able to migrate 6,895 mailboxes with complete data such as emails, calendars, contacts, etc, to Office 365. I can say that my business was saved due to Mail Migration Wizard. I was very impressed with the performance of SysTools Mail Migration Wizard and the services offered by the company. Moreover, the company also implemented the migration process as per my budget. Security factor was also considered by the company. There was no data loss while the migration process. I was completely happy and satisfied!
As per my experience, my friend, I would recommend you to select SysTools Mail Migration Wizard with services. Kudos to SysTools!
