Transform your business with best in class productivity tools. It’s the Office you know, plus tools to help you work better together, so you can get more done — anytime, anywhere.
Office 365 is re-shaping the way we work. IT professionals are using Office 365 to drive digital transformation by empowering employees to achieve more with tools that enhance collaboration and productivity and at the same time put powerful business intelligence in everyone’s reach.
The key to successful utilisation of Office 365 is to focus on three steps:
Building the cloud environment
Your applications now need to be accessed by your users remotely in the cloud. This should not be a problem if access is planned correctly.
- Will your existing network be enough?
- How much capacity is needed?
- Internet, dedicated or private Cloud provider specific connections?
- What is your back-up plan?
We can help you design and implement the correct cloud access to Office 365
The users will expect to switch off and start afresh the next day… you know it’s not as easy as that for such a core application.
- What else is your mail linked to?
- Diversity & back-up
- Spring clean
- Hybrid working
- Archiving & regulatory
- Phased or a big blast?
We can help you successfully migrate from your old platform to Office 365
Maximising the full functionality
It’s not just office and email in the cloud. We can help you with the wider functionality and ensure you get the full value from your investment.

We can support your business through Office 365 adoption
Our experience suggests that to get the maximum from your Office 365 investment and all the potential benefits available what’s crucial is how the solution is designed, how migration is managed and how it’s supported post set-up.
We are Office 365 design, connection, migration and management experts.
Even the largest, best resourced organisations need support now and then. If you don’t have the time or resources then work with a partner who has done it all before. A partner who can help you realise the full benefits of the technology and has a proven methodology to manoeuvre you successfully through the adoption challenges.
The migration is a complex task that demands skills that may only need to be used once. Why burden your internal team with a one-off project and risk the journey to Office 365 with a poorly executed migration?
As a Microsoft Gold Partner, Acora is perfectly placed to carry out complex enterprise level migrations to Office 365. We’ve done it many times, for many clients in different sectors. We’d like to think we’ve seen it all, know the pitfalls and understand how to manage the risks.
Design your Office 365
Our methodology is tried and tested. Acora architects undertake detailed due diligence and give clear visibility on costs and activities associated with the new functionality and any required interworking with legacy infrastructure.
Access to Office 365 professionals
From cloud architects, project managers, design architects and consultants we have gathered some of the best Office 365 talent around. Our full lifecycle professional services teams have a wealth of experience and knowledge and will plan a granular approach to successful project delivery.
Connect to your Office 365
Your applications now need to be accessed by your users in the cloud. Our architects will work with you to recommend the type of connection, the capacity required, the back-up and diversity plans as well as any interoperability between on-premise and cloud environments.
If required we can also order and manage the installation of the new network for you.
Migrate to your Office 365
Acora’s project teams will plan the migration with you and help you decide what to roll out and when. Once the plan is in place we will appoint a dedicated project management team to manage the transition.
Complex and legacy migrations
With legacy email archives, the move is more complex than standard migration tools can support. We’ve selected tools from specialist email migration experts to guarantee a smoother, speedier execution that will fulfil any compliance and audit obligations.
