Why migrate



The information on this page is only relevant for SuperOffice customers that use SuperOffice On-site and one of our on-site Synchronization products.

Our on-site calendar synchronization products are introduced in 2004 when the SuperOffice software was solely used on site. Every customer had its own installation on-site and our calendar synchronization software was installed beside the SuperOffice server software. Sometimes on the same physical or virtual server. Sometimes on a separate server or even multiple servers. Our customers were -and are still- taking care of the maintenance of the server(s) and upgrade of the software.

When SuperOffice introduced its online version of SuperOffice CRM, we developed an accompanying product for calendar synchronization, called Synchronizer for SuperOffice. Like with the SuperOffice Online platform, our customers do not have to install anything on site. The entire process runs 'in the cloud' and software updates are applied automatically and periodically.

Now we have added features to Synchronizer to make calendar synchronization to Microsoft 365, Outlook.com and Google Calendar possible in combination with SuperOffice On-site installations. The benefit is obvious: no local installation of our software and automatic updates and scaling.

But there might be more benefits or important reasons to migrate to Synchronizer for SuperOffice.

Are you migrating to SuperOffice's online platform or planning that?

If you are in the process of migrating from SuperOffice On-site to SuperOffice's online platform or you are planning it for the future, now might be the time to already migrate to Synchronizer. The migration can be separated from the migration of the SuperOffice installation.

When migrating to Synchronizer, the calendars of the users need to be cleaned to avoid duplicate appointments and tasks. To separate this migration from the SuperOffice migration is a good approach to avoid too much downtime of the calendar synchronization for the users.

Are you using Exchange Online or Microsoft 365?

When using Microsoft 365, it is possible to migrate to Synchronizer for SuperOffice.

Microsoft's Exchange Online, also known as Microsoft 365 or formerly as Office 365, has disabled the feature called Basic Authentication on October 1, 2022
Read more on Microsoft's announcement and the reason behind the decision on Microsoft Tech Community.

We have a version of Exchange Online Synchronizer that does no longer use the feature Basic Authentication, but the OAuth method to log on to Exchange Online. More information about that version is on our knowledge base for on-site products.
