With Help from Expert Consultants, Global Nonprofit Trims Email Costs By 38%

With help from Microsoft Consulting Services and MigrationWiz, Catholic Relief Services successfully consolidates 4,525 email accounts residing in different systems and countries to Microsoft Exchange Online.

“CRS also needed to migrate 850 email accounts that were already running on five separate instances of Microsoft Business Productivity Online Standard Suite. The Microsoft Consulting Services group connected CRS with BitTitan, a member of the Microsoft Partner Network that offers a proprietary email migration tool called MigrationWiz. This tool helped simplify the process of consolidating Microsoft Business Productivity Online Standard Suite accounts on a single SMTP domain. ‘We were very impressed by the effort that the Microsoft Consulting Services team made in connecting us with an external partner to handle a portion of the work,’ says Carr. ‘Microsoft clearly demonstrated to us that they were committed to helping us complete our email migration project in the most efficient and cost-effective way possible.'” “…the organization benefitted from expert guidance on how to efficiently transition email accounts in areas with slow Internet connectivity. Finally, through its use of MigrationWiz from Microsoft partner BitTitan, CRS quickly consolidated its existing Microsoft Business Productivity Online Standard Suite environment on a single domain. ‘With every new or unexpected challenge we faced, Microsoft consultants were there with a creative solution to keep our migration project moving forward,’ says Carr.”
