Metalogix Exchange Public Folder Migration Manager for fast and efficient content migration to SharePoint
Published on 5 October 2010
A worldwide leader in providing first responders with high quality, innovative agent delivery solutions, TFT chose Metalogix Software to facilitate their Public Folder migration to Microsoft SharePoint.
Metalogix Software, leading provider of Microsoft SharePoint migration, management and archiving solutions today announced that innovative manufacturing solution provider Task Force Tips (TFT) has chosen Metalogix's Exchange Public Folder Manager to move their Public Folder content into SharePoint 2007.
Ever since the invention of the fire pump, firefighters have been plagued with the difficulty of obtaining correct nozzle pressures for nozzles. Based on a simple and reliable design, Task Force Tip nozzles solve this dilemma by constantly adjusting to the varying pressures of the hoseline. TFT has championed the manufacturing and distribution of firefighting nozzles and equipment since 1971. Its sales force spans the globe, representing the Midwestern business in more than 60 countries.
As an organization serving mainly the public sector, when TFT needed to migrate content from Public Folders to SharePoint, they looked for a cost-effective migration solution that was easy, fast and would also allow them to flexibly re-organize content. When TFT cut over to Microsoft Exchange Server 14, the new version of public folders did not allow anonymous access and so the documents were not available to our shop floor people… information which is critical for them to do their job, they knew they would needed a shorter term solution while Microsoft was in the process of creating a work around for this.
"We do not have a huge amount of data in Public Folders but what we do have is very mission critical to us. While we had known that Microsoft was going to force us out of folders we have been dragging our feet on moving to SharePoint because of knowing how incredibly hard it was going to be to make the move," said Stewart McMillan, CEO of Task Force Tips. "I did a search for a migration tool on a Saturday night, found [the Metalogix] tool and thought it would be a perfect fit. I downloaded the code, fired it up and from my home did a migration of about 700 records. After a few tweaks and some tips we were up and running in a production environment on Monday, with everyone on the shop floor accessing the information. What we expected to be draconian busy work was an exciting process."
Metalogix prides itself on providing just this type of migration experience. Rasool Rayani, Co-Founder and Director of Metalogix explains: "our core mission is to provide easy to use, compliant and effective migration and upgrade solutions.
