We have received many questions and requests regarding migration the other way around: migrating to P1 from another Office 365 plan.
Since there is no built-in mechanism to switch from one plan to another, some people have resorted to the time-consuming method of PST export-import where users backup Gigabytes of data to their local machines over a slow network connection and upload them to their destination plan. Because this route takes a long time, it wastes employer resources and money. On top of that, the PST method can also make your emails non-repliable.
Not only can MigrationWiz migrate to Office 365 Plan P1 from any other Office 365 plan, we can migrate between any Office 365 plan (K1-2, P1 or E1-4) all leveraging our highly available network and data centers connected at gigabit speeds.
Apparently, many professionals and small businesses that originally used BPOS are being upgraded to the E1 by default which is designed for midsize businesses and enterprises. These professionals and small businesses can better benefit from P1 plans because of their small size. The Plan P is designed for those who do not need enterprise level features such as unlimited email storage, live phone support, or Active Directory integration.
Some of you may be looking at a Plan K plan for what Microsoft calls “kiosk workers.” Plan K1-2 are designed for employees who do not spend much time at the computer (5-10% of their work day). It is useful for company communication and employee organization as it only offers web-based email, calendar, contacts, and the company directory. Employees on a Plan K also have the ability to view and make edits (K2 only) to documents with Office Web Apps.
The good news is that MigrationWiz has helped hundreds of IT organizations and hosted service providers streamline migrations, including Office 365 to Office 365 migrations. Our cloud-based migration solution can securely migrate all your emails, calendars, contacts, tasks and notes from any Office 365 plan to another.

Because MigrationWiz is a cloud-based solution, there is no software or hardware to install, making the entire migration process seamless. In fact, your users probably won’t even realize they’ve been switched to a new plan. Except for all the new plan features, of course!
