An IT PSA solution is the central hub for any MSP because it must integrate with all of the critical applications that an MSP needs to run their business, providing full visibility into customers, internal operations and profitability. The PSA solution should be purpose-built for MSPs and have a user experience that is optimal for unique workflows and business processes.

Any IT admin leaving Google’s G Suite for Microsoft’s Office 365 knows that there are some significant differences between these two software-as-a-service (SaaS) platforms. As a result, migrating data from Google to O365 requires careful planning that may not be explicitly addressed in the official Microsoft Office 365 Onboarding Guide. To ensure your G Suite data isn’t lost in translation, we’ve outlined the best practices for IT admins managing the migration from Google Apps to O365. No matter what third-party tools or services you employ to move your data from Google’s cloud to Microsoft’s online office suite, our guide will help you avoid the common pitfalls and problems associated with G Suite to Office 365 migrations.

Just as there are multiple experts-for-hire to handle a Google Apps to Office 365 migration, there are an equal number of software tools and services for this as well. These solutions range from free applets that simply do Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP) transfers between Gmail and O365 mail accounts, to complex SaaS tools that map and move data between Google accounts and Active Directory-managed Office 365 users. Each migration tool has an associated set of costs and compatibilities to consider.

What is Your Migration Timeline?

Unless you can count the number of G Suite users in your Google domain on two hands, it’s unwise to migrate everyone over to Office 365 at the same time (and it’s probably a bad idea even for domains of less than 10 user accounts). Migration should happen in waves, and start with a pilot subgroup of early adopters. If possible, break up your migration into at least three stages — typically 10 percent of users in the first wave (sometimes called the pilot wave), 40 percent of user accounts in the second, and the remaining 50 percent in the third. Leave ample time between each stage to troubleshoot any problems discovered during each phase. By setting a clear, reasonable timeline before your migration starts, you’ll avoid several headaches in the future.

Adapting to change can be hard, so we’re here to help. To ensure your G Suite data isn’t lost in translation, we’ve outlined the best practices for managing this migration from start to finish. Download the eBook today!

We are pleased to inform that we have lowered the withdrawal fees to 0.0003 BTC (for withdrawal to any BTC wallet; previously 0.0005 BTC). Minimum withdrawal limit is also lowered from 0.005 BTC to 0.003 BTC and the fee for withdrawals over 0.1 BTC is lowered from 0.5% of the withdrawn amount to 0.3% of the withdrawn amount. We are still actively working on implementing alternative crypto-currencies for

  • Service Desk: Put your service desk on track, manage your resources and get projects queued up and completed on time and on spec. With an automated IT business management platform, you’ll lose redundancy and inefficiency, and gain accountability and tangible ROI with full visibility of the metrics that matter most to your service operations.
  • Contracts and SLAs: Manage a multitude of contract types, terms and billing options. It’s best to find a solution that integrates with workflows throughout the platform to ensure compliance, service quality, and reduce the billing process from hours to minutes. An automated business management tool makes it easier to set realistic expectations, establish automated workflows, and improve customer satisfaction. When you can quickly see what’s due and what’s in danger with real-time updates and alerts, your service response will continually improve.
  • Tech Scheduling and Resource Management: A PSA can display all your calendar items, from service calls to To-Dos and appointments. Dispatch calendars allow managers to delegate work to the appropriate techs and see who is available. Resource management allows you to manage time-off policies, establish weekly billable hours goals, manage workgroups, and track skills, degrees, and certificates that resources have earned.
  • Automate Service Delivery: Workflow rules and notifications help drive automation across the entire platform. When an event takes place and certain conditions are met, you can automatically update an entity, take action, and notify people of what has been done. Checklists or similar features allow you to

Additionally, we have also implemented a new withdrawal policy for Coinbase withdrawals. Minimum withdrawal limit when selecting Coinbase withdrawal is now adjusted dynamically according to API overload. When API conditions are normal the minimum withdrawal limit is set at 0.002 BTC.
