|Service built to help organizations transfer their data and content from the ShareFile file-sharing and collaboration platform to Microsoft's cloud-based SharePoint Online platform.
ShareFile to SharePoint Online migration typically involves moving files, folders, and other content from ShareFile to SharePoint Online while preserving important metadata, permissions, and security settings. This migration is often undertaken by organizations that are looking to consolidate their content management and collaboration tools, improve their workflow and productivity, or reduce costs by moving to a cloud-based platform.
Migrating from ShareFile to SharePoint Online allows organizations to streamline their workflows using a single platform for file storage and collaboration. SharePoint Online offers advanced collaboration features such as co-authoring, versioning, and access controls that can help teams work more efficiently and effectively. Our goal is to help companies carefully plan, prepare and perform a successful and smooth ShareFile to SharePoint Online Migration without data loss or corruption.
