WHAT MAKES TRANSEND TRULY UNIQUE?

We’re the service provider

Unlike most vendors who rebrand 3rd party software, we don’t rely on anyone else’s email migration technology, experience or support. If problems arise, we won’t be submitting external support tickets resulting in delays. Our engineers simply pick up the phone to communicate with our internal developers to ensure real-time troubleshooting.

This direct line of communication represents an efficiency that positions migration projects for unparalleled success.

  • Enhanced project efficiency
  • Full accountability

What’s Next?

After 10 years with Microsoft, we decided to switch to Google Workspace. After a few failed attempts to migrate the mailboxes ourselves, we cut our losses and asked Transend to perform the porject for us. Everyone at Transend was quick to assist and get our data migrated without a hitch. They were professional, efficient and provided tremendous value. They saved us countless hours and we had zero down time during the migration. I highly recommend the team at Transend!

Reciprocal Capital partnered with Transend to migrate legacy email and documents as part of a broader server upgrade. Transend successfully completed the project on-schedule, and their excellent communication along the way provided real peace of mind. I can’t recommend their services highly enough.

Our company was facing a series of challenges by undertaking our email migration. With the clear planning, guidance, and execution of Transend’s team the project was painless. Several of our users have large and rather older data profiles which were easily brought to Microsoft 365. We couldn’t be happier with our experience provided by Transend. I heartily recommend the migration service.

Run! Don’t walk to partner with Transend if you are considering moving to a new email platform. Our first email migration we did ourself was a nightmare, so the second time we prepared by partnering with Transend. They delivered as promised and provided clear communication during the process! All our email folders and messages were migrated quickly and cleanly!

We were extremely impressed with the results of our Gmail-to-M365 migration. We couldn’t be more pleased. We spent over a year looking into various solutions to migrate not only our email accounts, but all of our 15+ years of email history. After initially talking with Transend six months ago, we were skeptical about how simple they made the process sound. We delayed our decision because we were worried about the problems we might encounter, not truly believing it could be pulled off without major problems and at least some loss of this critical communication channel for some period of time. However, Transend was confident in its process and technology…and proved it! Zero down time. Zero issues. We couldn’t have hoped for a smoother process. Thank you all.

After years of problems with my email provider (random sent emails were not received by my clients) I decided it was time to switch hosts. When I would reach out to my email host they would blame my internet provider. But after talking with the internet provider they put the blame it on the email host. After a couple of years I said enough is enough. So I started looking locally to find someone that could help me with the migration. With no luck locally, I decided to give Transend a chance. This decision turns out to be one of the best decisions I have made for my business! Their engineering team made the process so easy and pain-free. Transend migrated my email over to a M365 account and it has been working flawlessly ever since. If you are looking for a company to handle your email migration, I would look no further than Transend – you have come to the right place.

Transend’s speed and professionalism really stood out. There was one issue with a user who has an unusual obsession with saving draft messages. Following our mail migration we discovered his hundreds of draft messages weren’t editable in the target. Transend recreated the issue, engaged developers and deployed a fix within 1 day. This quick response was key to the overall perception of a smooth, well managed migration.

We’re a small company with no IT staff, and thanks to Transend our migration from Microsoft 365 to Google Workspace was extremely smooth. The process was very organized with clear instructions as to what we needed to provide and what to expect. Timely communication took place when we did have questions. I highly recommended Transend’s migration services.
