Intermedia Empowers Partners with Powerful, Intuitive Tool to Move Customers to the Cloud
Cloud Concierge™ Onboarding Tool and 24/7 Live Support Team Give Partners Control of a Smooth, Worry-free Migration Experience for their Customers
Mountain View, CA - March 26, 2013
Intermedia, a global leader in cloud services and the world’s largest Microsoft Exchange hosting provider, is making it even easier for its partners to migrate their small and medium-sized business customers’ Exchange mailboxes to the cloud. Intermedia has released its proprietary Cloud Concierge Onboarding Tool exclusively to its channel partners. This tool allows partners to fully control the onboarding experience, from account creation through object creation, data migration and cutover.
Intermedia, as the largest Exchange hoster in the industry, has developed and used the powerful and intuitive Cloud Concierge Onboarding Tool to migrate over 300,000 users since 2010. Partners, who are now able to use the tool, will be supported by Intermedia’s free 24/7 live support and can even have Intermedia’s team of onboarding experts handle the entire migration completely free of charge.
"Intermedia's onboarding tool has helped our business migrate customers very quickly and efficiently. It's extremely easy to use and has really helped us control the entire onboarding process to meet our customers’ needs,” said Jason Tucker, service coordinator at VISI, a leading data center solutions provider in Minnesota.
“Intermedia's Cloud Concierge onboarding team is top-notch. I’ve done many migrations to different vendor clouds. What I truly appreciate about Intermedia’s team is its focus on the details of each migration. Team members listen to the specifics of the case, apply their deep knowledge and expertise, plan for and then execute a worry-free end-user experience," said Denise Hyatt-Roberts of Cyber Services, Inc.
“The migration and onboarding experience creates the customer’s first impression of their new system,” said Jonathan McCormick, COO, Intermedia. “A smooth experience builds a strong and trusting partner relationship immediately, while giving customers confidence in the solution. Our goal is to minimize onboarding interruptions, assure fidelity and proceed at the pace our partners and customers require. Our Cloud Concierge Onboarding Tool gives our partners the control they need to nail this first experience every time.”

Intermedia’s Cloud Concierge Onboarding Tool gives partners full control over every aspect of hosted Exchange setup and migration.

- Exporting objects like GAL or Active Directory objects
- Adding or excluding specific objects
- Fixing bad email addresses or other objects
- Managing mailflow redirection
- Migrating data
- Distributing single sign-on tools to end-users
