Official Microsoft Office365 Implementation Services
There’s never been a better time to move to the cloud.
Used correctly, Office365 can take your business to new levels of efficiency, productivity, and digital optimisation. The productivity suite combines all the apps you need to create, publish, analyse and handle any amount of business data. The cloud-based system links multiple devices, making your business streamlined and completely mobile – perfect for the modern remote, virtual working culture.
To unlock the full potential of Office365’s online services, you need to make sure your business has implemented every element of the system correctly.
Valto’s Office365 implementation services will assist with integrating all your existing data into the system and help set you up to align the Microsoft suite with your productivity and business goals. Our implementation services feature all the apps in the Office365 universe – including SharePoint Online, PowerApps, Exchange Online, Teams and more – and we bring unrivalled knowledge of the Azure Active Directory to the table too.

Read on for our ultimate Office365 implementation checklist to get you in the right place to get started.
It might seem like common sense, but it’s really important to make sure all business users – the people who actually use Office applications day in, day out – are kept up to date and understand why you’re migrating the system.
Communicating timescales and setting expectations is a key step in your plan. Everyone in your organisation will need to know how they will be affected and when projects can be streamlined. This is where Valto’s Microsoft experts can help you draw up a realistic migration plan and map out the timeline.
Before transferring everything over to the new Office365 landscape, make a list of everything your existing IT landscape. This might include:
Unsure which data you need to record and collect? Our specialist Office365 Consultants can take a full audit of your system and take care of all the details safely and securely.
Next, you’ll need to set up the system to host your users and data. There are a number of steps you might need to follow for this process, including:
At this point you’ll be moving on-premises business data over to the new cloud environment. You should have already mapped out this process during your initial inventory stage; this is actually a good opportunity for a bit of housekeeping – you only want to be bringing up to date, required and relevant files over to Office365. The shorter the list of things to move, the shorter the implementation process will be!
Licences will need to be assigned to each user, and services such as Exchange Online and SharePoint will need to be enabled. This is a cloud-based system after all, so you’ll want to check mobile devices are authorised and syncing correctly. At this point you’ll also want to make sure everyone in your team knows how to use the various Office applications and tools. Our Office365 deployment specialists can provide tutorials and training to get your team off to a running start.
Getting your Office365 implementation right is the first step in moving your business into the future. As you can see, it can be a complex process involving vital steps. Our implementation services will take into consideration issues and opportunities you might not have thought of, and will be on hand to ease any pain points and troubleshoot any and all migration issues.
