UPDATE: SYNNEX Offering SkyKick's Automated Cloud Migration Application

Helps IT Solution Providers Move SMBs to Microsoft Office 365

SEATTLE, WA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/03/13 -- SkyKick (www.skykick.com), the easiest way to Office 365, today announced SYNNEX Corporation (NYSE: SNX), a leading distributor of IT products and services, is offering SkyKick's Application Suite to its solution providers to provide a new way to move their small and medium-size business (SMB) customers to the cloud. With the collaboration, SYNNEX is at the cutting edge of cloud computing technology, adding value to its partners in helping them transition to Microsoft Office 365 with SkyKick's Office 365 project migration application for SMBs.

The SkyKick Application Suite helps IT Consultants, System Integrators, Managed Service Providers, Value-Added Resellers and other IT partners automate an entire Office 365 migration project from initial sales to project completion for SMBs. This enables partners to improve sales velocity, reduce project risk and complexity, and simplify the management of the migration project, while providing a high quality migration for their customers.

Rob Moyer, SYNNEX's Vice President who is responsible for running the company's Microsoft global business unit states, "Moving millions of SMBs to the cloud is no small task, but with SkyKick's technology the process is greatly simplified, allowing our cloud partners to save time and money to scale their cloud practices, and our non-cloud partners to get in the game. SkyKick's proven technology has established a new cloud migration automation category. SkyKick, in combination with the SYNNEX Capture the Cloud Program, allows our partners a differentiated solution to scale their cloud revenue and profitability."

"We worked with SYNNEX and SkyKick to migrate our customer to Office 365 from a very challenging hosted Exchange environment," said Frank Special, Project Manager at Modcomp Inc. "SkyKick simplified and sped up the migration process with very few issues. The end result was a very satisfied customer and additional business for our firm."

"This relationship will help us as we continue to revolutionize the Office 365 landscape," said SkyKick co-CEO Evan Richman. "SkyKick gets the benefit of the reach of one of the largest IT distributors with a track record of successfully delivering value added solutions to their partners and SYNNEX gets access to a powerful new platform that's changing the way SMBs access the cloud."

Since SkyKick launched its beta application in the middle of 2012, it has been used to migrate thousands of SMBs to Office 365 and is currently being leveraged by hundreds of partners to move customers to Office 365. Traditionally, migration tools on the market have focused on moving server-side data, which is one step in an overall migration-consulting project. The SkyKick Application Suite eliminates this work by helping partners manage all of the essential steps of a migration project including the sales, planning, migration and on-site phases of their customer's move to Office 365.
