iomart launches Office 365 campaign at Cloud Expo Europe

27th February 2015 · Press Releases

iomart is launching a new campaign to help businesses transform how they work in the cloud at Cloud Expo Europe on 11th March at ExCel London.

‘SavetheCloud365’ will showcase how using iomart can help customers migrate to and manage Office 365, the all-inclusive productivity solution that delivers familiar Office applications coupled with powerful enterprise class communications and collaboration capabilities across your tablet, PC and phone.

The campaign is being launched with iomart’s own Queen of the IT Jungle, ‘I’m a Celebrity….Get Me Out Of Here’ contestant Vicki Michelle. Vicki wil be on the stand on the opening day of Cloud Expo Europe alongside experts from iomart and Microsoft who will explain how easy it is to move to Office 365.

Phil Worms, Chief Marketing Officer for iomart, says, “Vicki survived in the jungle in Australia by being resourceful and learning to collaborate and communicate with her teammates. To survive the modern IT jungle that’s what a business has to do and what Office 365 allows you to do is work a lot smarter.”

iomart has been chosen by Microsoft as a Tier 1 member for its Cloud Solution Provider Programme in Europe. This means iomart can fully support Office 365 for customers via managed technical support as well as controlling the entire billing process.

iomart is partnering with the environmental charity Rainforest Concern which works to protect the threatened Cloud Forest in Ecuador for the SavetheCloud365 campaign. For every Office 365 licence sold by iomart this year, a donation will be made to the charity to help it secure more land in the Choco Andean Corridor in north west Ecuador. Rangers working for the charity in the Cloud Forest will be given tablets loaded with Office 365 to enable them to work better and smarter.

Cloud Rainforest Cock of the Rock

Peter Bennett, Executive Director and Founder of Rainforest Concern, says, “We’re delighted that iomart is supporting us with its Office 365 campaign. Ecuador is one of the most diverse regions for flora and fauna. The Ecuadorian forest is disappearing at a rate of over 200,000 hectares a year. We are working to stop this and maintain the landscape so the birds, animals and local people can all continue to survive.”

Microsoft’s vision is to empower people through technology and a cloud-first world and iomart has been chosen to help it achieve that. iomart will provide the technical expertise to support businesses that want to move to Office 365.

Bill Strain, Chief Technology Officer for iomart, says, “It’s hardly surprising that people compare the IT marketplace to a jungle. It can be a wild and untamed place to be and difficult to navigate without a knowledgeable guide. It is this hypothetical wilderness that is leading more and more businesses to select a trusted and ‘cloud agnostic’ service provider like iomart to assist them on their journey to the cloud. Choosing an expert Cloud Service Provider who you can build a lasting relationship with and who has the expertise to deliver a variety of requirements ensures you can architect services to meet your exact business needs.”
