What Customers Say

Apps4Rent’s transition manager lead us through every step in the migration. Legal compliance and eDiscovery features in Office 365 were important to us. Apps4Rent team did not rest till all emails and public folders were migrated, and compliance configurations done.– Bill, Partner, Law Firm, Ohio
Apps4Rent is the most efficient vendor one can get in the market. They do their homework well and are very detailed and meticulous in their approach. They know the intricacies of Azure so well that throughout the migration process they had very little dependency on our internal IT team. Once the migration was complete, we haven’t looked back at it and have been operating without any disruptions, whatsoever!– Jeremy, Head, IT Services, Connecticut
