Case Study: Non Profit


This case study of a non-profit is based on a March 2016 survey of AvePoint customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service. The profiled organization asked to have their name blinded to protect their confidentiality.

“With DocAve, I’m very confident that our Exchange and SharePoint data is safe and can be easily restored when necessary.”

“We’re backing up our Office 365 implementation. Exchange was the number one concern and as we begin to use OneDrive for Business and SharePoint on a more regular basis the DocAve backups will be just as important.”

“I had been using DocAve to backup my local Exchange server for a number of years and was very satisfied with the product. Once we moved to Office 365, AvePoint let me know it had a product that would back all of that up and would also make restores easy. That is a true statement and it has made my life much easier.”
