Microsoft is now offering SMBs assistance with moving to Office 365 by extending onboarding and migration support to customers between 50 and 149 seats through its Microsoft FastTrack service.
FastTrack was previously only available to customers with 150 seats or more.
"Microsoft partners who serve SMBs say companies reach a breaking point with Google Apps around the 50-employee mark, the point at which a business typically starts to require centralized management capabilities, enterprise-grade security features, and integrated productivity and collaboration apps," a spokesperson for the company tells WebProNews. "That’s why the new SMB offer is designed to help businesses with 50+ seats deploy Office 365 faster and more seamlessly."
"Whether a business is currently using a cloud productivity solution other than Office 365 or hasn’t yet made the transition to the cloud – this is the best time for businesses to choose Office 365," the spokesperson says.
The company is also expanding the FY16 Adoption Offer to include Office 365 small business plans and adding payouts for customer deployments of 50–149 seats so partners will be eligible for a payout of $25 per seat for 50–149 seats.
