Office 365 Migration, Managed Cloud Services Save Dotchi Time & Money


Company: Dotchi
Industry: Manufacturing
Employees: 17
Overview: After splitting off from their parent company, Dotchi had to decide between keeping their infrastructure on-premises or migrating to a cloud-based platform without overwhelming their team with new systems and technology.
Solution: Office 365 migration and ongoing managed IT support

Splitting off from a 2,000-person parent company is a huge undertaking. Restructuring people and processes while maintaining business as usual presents serious challenges for a small company. But migrating company email servers and delicate data doesn’t have to complicate the process.

That’s what Harry Tchira, president of Miami-based Dotchi, discovered after partnering with Agile IT to migrate his company mailboxes from Microsoft Server 2010 to Office 365.

Dotchi had separated from parent company Crescent Garden to form an independent 17-user entity that designs and creates functional products for the home and garden and needed a trusted partner to lead its email migration.

Partnering for the Future

While Dotchi could have utilized its parent company to move to Office 365, it was committed to finding a partner that would provide continued and reliable IT support.

Harry needed a knowledgeable, long-term partner to initiate a smooth, seamless transition to the cloud and help manage Dotchi IT moving forward. And that’s exactly what he got.

After reaching out to Microsoft in search of an experienced partner, Harry was directed to Agile IT. Having migrated over 750,000 users to Office 365, won Microsoft Cloud Partner of the Year 5 years in a row and been named a Microsoft Gold partner (sitting in the top 0.5% of the online services channel), Harry was sure he’d found a partner for years to come.

Leading a Successful & Pain-Free Migration

Not only was Harry migrating to Office 365; he was also spearheading a new company. Agile IT and Harry worked closely throughout the migration process while still allowing him to focus on what he knows best: running a business.

After working with Agile IT to migrate to Office 365, Harry continues to rely on the company for his IT needs today. Being able to outsource both the migration and the accompanying IT monitoring and maintenance has allowed him to spend less time on his IT infrastructure and rest assured knowing he has an expert team in his corner.

“Perhaps it just seems simple because Agile IT has made it simple for us…in the end, this just made sense,” Harry said.

When asked if he would recommend Office 365 to other companies like his, Harry responded, “Absolutely. And I have.”
