A new essentials server and a move to office 365 from POP. What order woudl you recommend?

Looking to replace an SBS 2003 install with an essentials 2012R2 install AND move the 6 users from hosted POP mail to office 365 exchange.

The SBS 2003 has not been using Exchange - no shared calendar / contacts / folders.  Just users using pop email and conjtacts stored locally in the PST.

What order would you do things?  Install the server then once that's all set, move to office 365?  Or better to do them concurrent (I haven't used Essentials before, but heard that it 'works' with office 365?  So is it better to set it up from the start for office 365?

Office 365 first then the server?
