Box Migration

Unlock the Box and put your content where it works for you.

A lot has changed since Box first launched to market. Microsoft now offers a host of powerful content management and collaboration tools as part of its standard business licence and the reasons to migrate Box to Microsoft have become very compelling.
The benefits of consolidating content inside the Microsoft ecosystem are undeniable from a cost, functionality and security perspective. The only challenge is planning and executing a migration out of Box that taps into all that potential. That’s where we come in.

Your collaborative content is a valuable business asset that needs to be used. It also needs to be carefully governed to stay secure and compliant. That’s tough to do when it’s segregated from all other workloads and falls outside of your normal corporate governance processes.

It’s time to unify security and governance, reduce licence fees and admin, improve storage, and empower users with efficient access to collaborative content. Unlock the Box and bring your content home into Microsoft 365. Fast, safely and affordably.

Our solution​

As Gold certified Microsoft partners, we specialise in helping our clients to migrate Box to Microsoft, strategically unlocking its full business potential within Microsoft 365. That means going beyond OneDrive to include destinations like SharePoint and Teams.

We work with you to understand, prepare and rehome your content in a way that enhances its usability, structure and security. Our goal is to add tangible value to your content landscape, not just replicate what went before.

What’s included?​


To assess and declutter the data you have, map it to Microsoft workloads, scope, prioritise and test the migration.

Migration deployment

Including runbooks and templates to ease change management though user communication.

A future-proofed progression

That positions you for optimal security and compliance and prepares you for future innovations and technologies.

A fully managed, end-to-end process

Led by an experienced project manager.

A competitive fixed price

For the deployment phase.

We'd love to discuss your migration challenge.

From Our Clients

The Cloud Essentials’ team have shown they are a partner, not just a supplier. The company we acquired advised that the IT integration project was the most successful part of their conversion to join us, which is a reflection on everyone involved. Thank you!

Head of Infrastructure

Job well done! I appreciate your knowledge, expertise, and teamwork/engagement which contributed to a successful migration/cutover.


"Cloud Essentials performed a mail migration for our Institute of Astronomy, from a legacy Microsoft Exchange server to the University Microsoft 365 Tenancy. Cloud Essentials were extremely professional from start to finish. They understood our Higher Education context. They were very flexible when setting the timeline when we had some challenges in our availability to support the work. Their staff were helpful and friendly. They demonstrated great expertise and guided us throughout the process. The migration itself was smooth and fast. Great service by a great team! I would recommend and use their services again."

Higher Education Institution

Project Manager

“This has been very refreshing. And Cloud Essentials have been not just an implementer, but a trusted partner. They’ve effectively become our ‘SharePoint arm’ within the company. They haven’t taken a cookie-cutter approach with something from another environment, but have genuinely wanted to find the best way to help us.”

CIO, Prominent law firm

Colin Short

"Cloud Essentials carried out a very professional service. They stayed cool, calm and collected. I’m sure it won’t be the last time we work with Cloud Essentials."

It is no small achievement to reduce a corporate enterprise data footprint this significantly in a responsible, well planned and executed manner.

Information Manager, Alexander Forbes

Pierre Blignaut

“Cloud Essentials understand the importance of carrying out a project the right way, no matter the size of it. They don’t take any short cuts.”

Tenant Migration client

“This was a smooth migration with very little impact on the business during the changeover, we would definitely use Cloud Essentials and the Binary Tree toolset again if we need to do another migration!”
