WMFS planned to migrate to Office 365 cloud to provide an enriched Employee experience for its users. They needed sturdy governance mechanisms to set standards and processes which people could follow.
Before 0365 migration, WMFS used to store all the data and files in Network folders, local drives and in emails. This became a major challenge for the communication and collaboration within the organization.
There was a communication gap between the head office and employees who worked on fire stations and outside the office.
O365 migration has changed their collaboration process since all the documents, data and files can be easily accessed irrespective of their location. Mesh intranet also helps them to stay connected with the organization and stay updated with the latest news and announcements.Scroll Down To Know More

WMFS had a plan to migrate from on-premises Alfresco to Office 365. There was a need for structured planning and execution around areas like communication, training, and adoption for all MS Office workloads involved like Exchange, Skype, SharePoint, Yammer, OneDrive.
Acuvate has a lot of experience in assisting customers with the migration to the Microsoft 365 cloud. Acuvate uses automation tools to evaluate, plan and migrate from on-premise to cloud environment.
“I Think for me working, with an organization like Acuvate, who have got lots and lots of experience in adopting the whole Office 365 suite is really powerful. Not just about their knowledge of what the products are, but what you need to implement it effectively and both from like a product installation but also the cultural aspect as well.”
