When companies move to the cloud, it’s a huge step – and it’s not a step to be taken lightly. Of course, moving to the cloud results in major cost savings and a greater ability to collaborate with others; however, the planning involved with making the migration successful is immense. Office 365, a leading suite of cloud-based productivity services, is a great choice for businesses looking to switch from on-premises to the cloud.


Migrating to the cloud comes with clear benefits, especially when you take advantage of the various incentive programs available to you!

Microsoft offers a multitude of incentive programs designed to entice businesses to move to Office 365. In August 2015, Microsoft revealed the Fiscal Year 2016 incentives, known as the FastTrack Adoption Offer, which is available to those who purchase a minimum of 150 licenses between September 1st, 2015 and March 30th, 2016. How do the incentives work?

Fuelled Networks helps you take advantage of the various incentive programs to migrate smoothly…

After the minimum of 150 licenses are purchased and a tenant account is opened, Microsoft will contact you within 30 days to help you move core workloads, including SharePoint, Office Pro Plus, and Skype for Business, into the cloud. You must work with a certified deployment partner for the onboarding process.

Fuelled Networks is available to assist – making sure the onboarding process, as well as the deployment overall, is successful as we:

  • Manage the incentive deployments and make sure the migration is smooth
  • Help you offset the total cost of deployment as much as possible
  • Answer an questions and provide end-user training as needed
  • Handle any security/performance concerns during the migration process
