Joe has been slaving over a hot Mac (booting to Windows 10!) developing up some interesting solutions for a number of different clients. This is on top of his QuickBooks work for clients. Some examples are:
Seeking to migrate from their unsupported version of Microsoft Exchange 2007, Dynamic Pharma contracted Xlconsulting to move their 170+ users from their on-premises email server to Microsoft Exchange Online. This was successfully achieved over two weekends (one weekend per company) with zero data loss and minimal impact on the general staff. Xlconsulting assisted the Dynamic Pharma IT staff during and after the migration to ensure a smooth on boarding process with minimal inconvenience. The two companies also purchased licenced copies of Office 365 Business for the staff, the always up-to-date feature enhanced version of Office 2016.
Xlconsulting welcomes Dynamic Pharma, and sister organisation Agrotech Vita, to Office 365 and all its benefits!
