Do You Have Questions?

A list of frequently asked questions to help you understand how we work.

1. When can we get started?

We can typically start your migration in as few as three days after our initial meeting.  Typical migrations can be fully complete in about two weeks.

2. What information will you need to prepare a quote?

In order to determine the complexity of your migration we will need to understand your current website hosting, email configuration, number of users and the average size of the mailbox.  We will also discuss the Microsoft tools that you are hoping to leverage such as SharePoint, Teams and Power Automate.

3. What level of access will you require to our systems?

We will need to be set up as an administrator on you current platforms.  This includes your website hosting service and G-Suite if this where you will be migrating from.  Don’t worry we can’t see any data we can only see the containers.

4. How much does it cost?

Working with PropelU you pay Microsoft direct licensing prices.  We are Microsoft’s small business partners which allows us to offer you the annual subscription discount with only a monthly commitment. This means you pay only for what you need.

5. Why should I work with PropelU rather than Microsoft directly?

Working with us has it’s benefits, we have a data center in Montreal which means that your data is stored safely in Canada and never crosses the border.  We also have access to additional tools to make your migration seamless so you don’t lose any data. You will also have access to our team who understands the Microsoft tools that small businesses need, we help tailor them to your organization.

6. How long does it take to migrate to Microsoft 365?

Typical migrations will take five business days, however, they can be completed in less time.  The migration timeline is impacted by the size of your users mailboxes and the speed in which we are able to retrieve the data from your current email host.  We leverage powerful tools such as Bit-titian to accelerate the process.

7. Will I experience any downtime during the switch to Microsoft 365?

You are in good hands with PropelU, we have performed countless migrations.  We ensure that the transition is smooth and there is minimal disruption to your business.  We complete the transition to Microsoft 365 in a one hour online meeting with your company.  This is where we educate your users about the powerful new tools that they have access to.   We typically recommend doing this at the end of the workday so that your email propagates over night.

8. How does Microsoft 365 Help with Document Management?

SharePoint is still Microsoft’s most powerful tool for document management.  It has come a long way since you probably last looked at it, we would be happy to give you a tour!  It now integrates directly into file explorer and allows for full team collaboration in real time.

9. How much data can I store on Microsoft 365?

For most subscription plans, the default storage space for each user’s OneDrive is 1 TB. Depending on your plan and the number of licensed users, you can increase this storage up to 5 TB.

10. How many licenses will I need to purchase?

Microsoft requires each user to have a license.  Each license can be installed on up to 5 devices. In addition, there are opportunities to leverage shared mailboxes for your whole team which do not require individual licensing as long as each user has a license.  Contact us for more information.

Thank you for this!... It looks like I am all set up, and SharePoint is now synced in OneDrive on my computer. I really appreciate the support.
My first ever Outlook email is to you – so appropriate. Thank you for setting us up and also staying late with us on Friday night. You have the patience of a saint. I have always been the biggest proponent of Gmail but I like Outlook better already. I finally get to use a font I like.
