Optimal migration control

High performance

One clean step

Your data is then moved in one step – there’s no interim storage or formats that could compromise the integrity of your data or add extra cost & time to your migration.

Seamless experience

Even if you’ve been synching EV shortcuts, deleted items often slip the net. We will ensure the end user’s experience is as seamless as possible, & that there’s no surprises ‘post-migration’ (like deleted items re-appearing).

Flexible data mapping

There’s granular control over what gets migrated where in Microsoft 365. could move items older than 2 years to In-Place Archives & move deleted items into hidden RIF folders to ensure eDiscovery completeness.


As part of the migration you’ll get detailed chain-of-custody reports showing time-stamped, 1:1 mappings of the item ID in the EV archive & the new ItemID created in Microsoft 365, enabling your business to meet compliance objectives.  There’s also full support for migrating legacy EV Journal archives into Microsoft 365.

If an item fails to migrate (usually due to corruption in the EV archive or a temporary network problem), our service includes remediation:  In short, if we can fix your email we will.  If the email is damaged beyond repair, we still might be able to salvage all or part of it for your legal department.
