2014 Microsoft Partner of the Year Award Winner: Binary Tree

Microsoft has named US migration solution provider Binary Tree as its Messaging Partner of the Year Award winner.

Dedicated to helping customers migrate from competitive or legacy technology to the Microsoft Exchange Server, Binary Tree has been a Microsoft partner since 1993. The company’s technology has been used to move more than 6,000 customers to Exchange and over three million users to Exchange Online. Over the past 12 months, the company has helped 80 enterprises to migrate an estimated 800,000 users to Exchange.

OnWindows spoke to Steven Pivnik, CEO at Binary Tree, to find out more about the company and the services it provides

Tell us a little bit about your company and what you do.
As a global provider of e-mail and calendar migration software and solutions for Microsoft Exchange, Office 365, Active Directory and Windows Server environments, Binary Tree is ‘the moving van for enterprise e-mail data.’ Our team of more than 80 people includes experts who have migrated enterprise customers from various versions of Exchange to on-premises and online versions of Microsoft Exchange, as well as those who have moved organisations within Active Directory and from Windows Server environments.

Binary Tree is a Microsoft Gold Messaging Partner and is one of the company’s preferred vendors for migrating users to Microsoft Office 365. To date, we’ve migrated more than 30 million e-mail users, enabling Fortune 500 and mid-size organisations across the globe to realise the value of their Microsoft messaging environment. We are also helping a growing number of companies to move to cloud platforms, handling their clouds’ unique requirements with our migration technology and expertise.

Congratulations on winning the award. What does this accolade mean to your company?
Winning the Microsoft Messaging Partner of the Year award completely validates our core business of producing market-leading e-mail migration solutions for enterprise customers. When our partnership with Microsoft began, Binary Tree filled a critical need in the Notes Compete space. Over the past seven years, this partnership has evolved into a synergistic relationship that allows both companies to share new business opportunities, take on new competitors, continuously improve processes and generate new revenue streams.

What competencies did you have to demonstrate to be a contender?
In addition to being an active member of the Microsoft Messaging Competency group, we had to demonstrate a range of other competencies. We had to show that we had extensive experience in the messaging migration business, as well as a comprehensive product portfolio and evidence of successful migrations.

How are you applying these competencies to help your customers solve their business challenges?
Our typical customer usually only needs to migrate its messaging environment a handful of times during its business lifetime, and in the case of newly merged or newly acquired companies, the migration process is one of the more crucial elements for immediate success. Our years of experience mean that we are able to complete these migrations much more quickly, accurately and thoroughly than if the companies handled it themselves. Our designation as Microsoft’s Messaging Partner of the Year signifies that we are fully capable of handling a wide variety of client migrations to Microsoft’s messaging platforms. Our clients receive outstanding service before, during and after their migrations, thus enhancing their overall experience with our company.
