Office 365 - setup timescales

Last Modified: 2015-09-17

More of an opinion than a technical question, but mostly for anyone who has been involved in an Office 365 setup.

On the assumption that no existing systems exist, what kind of timescale has anyone experienced between going ahead and buying O365 licenses and being given access to the system to set up user accounts etc?

my reason for this is to get a good view on the overall timescale of an implementation. We can estimate  everything else, but not the licensing purchase & initial Office 365 setup by Microsoft.
