"Interlink provided us with technical consulting and PM expertise to facilitate our Microsoft 365 Migration, as well as helping guide us to consolidate multiple email environments and file share platforms from recent acquisitions. The professionalism of Interlink’s team is outstanding and made the entire migration process run smoothly. The technical consultants we worked with had extensive expertise and a deep understanding of the solutions they were implementing, so we had strong confidence in the quality and predictable results of the engagement. Additionally, they helped train our System Administrators and Service Desk associates on the new technology to ensure that we would be self-sufficient on the new Office 365 platform going forward. We found the Interlink team to be accessible, responsive, thorough, and able to answer all of our questions during our successful Office 365 migration project."
