Encore Professional Services that Ensure Success

System Design

Office 365 is a robust, powerful productivity solution delivered as cloud-based software-as-a-service. It retains significant flexibility in its configuration and deployment to accommodate specific user personalization. Encore technicians conduct a needs analysis of your organization and design a complete solution including any additional applications necessary, to attain the defined goals and deliver maximum value and usability.

Implementation and Training

Encore’s implementation methodology enables a seamless transition to the new solution with minimal, if any, system downtime. Issues surrounding accessibility, security, availability/business continuity, customization, scalability, systems/user support, and IT administration are considered within the defined strategy. Depending on the implementation scope and budget, user training can be delivered through various modalities (classroom, online, train-the-trainer.)

Migration and Integration

Transition to Office 365 can require the migration of existing databases, content, user accounts, forms and templates, and/or org charts and hierarchies.
