“Customers have a lot of unstructured data on PC’s and servers that can be very difficult to efficiently move to SharePoint. Until now, there’s been no easy or affordable way to do that.” Tom Bray, SharePoint Practice Manager
Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) January 08, 2014
Plus Consulting, a nationally-recognized, award-winning Microsoft Solution Provider, has announced the availability of Plus Migrator, a significant step forward in empowering IT administrators and end-users to migrate their files to Microsoft Office 365 or SharePoint.
“Plus Migrator provides an extremely affordable way to migrate and automatically tag content for those companies moving to Microsoft Office 365 or on-premise SharePoint,” said Tom Bray, Plus Consulting SharePoint Practice Manager. “Customers have a lot of unstructured data on their PC’s and servers that can be very difficult to efficiently move to their new SharePoint implementation. Until now, there’s been no easy or affordable way to do that.”
“Plus Consulting is entering its fifteenth year in business, and as you might imagine across many projects, customers and industries, we’ve had the unique opportunity to develop some truly valuable intellectual property,” said Steve Smith, Plus Consulting founder and CEO. “Plus Migrator is an excellent example of how our consulting services background has translated into the development of an easy-to-use product that solves a significant problem for customers in the SharePoint and Office 365 market.”
Specific features and benefits of Plus Migrator include:
Easily Design and Manage Migrations
With the ability to drag and drop files right into Plus Migrator, users are able to quickly and intuitively add files to the migration. Users can save and share migrations with others who have the tool installed and organize them into groups prior to executing them.
Quickly and Easily Move Files Into SharePoint 2010 or 2013
Users can execute more than one migration at a time, allowing them to simultaneously execute the migrations they have designed and planned out. Also, with legacy support, they will be able to move files to SharePoint 2010 and above.
Custom Metadata Mapping
Plus Migrator allows users add custom metadata to the files they are uploading, including applying metadata to an entire folder structure. When metadata is applied to a parent folder in the migration, it will carry down to all sub folders, significantly streamlining the application of metadata.
Outlook Email Integration
The Outlook Integration feature allows users to easily migrate daunting, unmanaged emails into SharePoint while recognizing and maintaining the most important details (i.e. To, From, Subject, Date) as metadata. Plus Migrator also allows custom metadata to be assigned to email just as if it were a regular file.
Cell Validation for Your Metadata
Plus Migrator intelligently inspects each metadata column to ensure all data is entered in the correct type for that column. For example, Plus Migrator will never allow text to be entered into an integer column. Users will be prompted to correct the column before being allowed to continue. The Cell Validation feature ensures that Plus Migrator eliminates user input errors.
Free Trial, How to Buy and Support
IT administrators and end-users can try Plus Migrator free for 15 days by downloading the tool. Plus Migrator Professional Edition is available immediately and can be purchased for just $499 starting today.
Maxwell Murrow, Applications Engineer at Plus Consulting, explains the product support available for Plus Migrator: “We have free support videos that walk you through the various aspects of the tool, free online support, or you can purchase one-on-one support.”
