Description

Learn how to go beyond email with Office 365 and adopt a new organizational mindset to produce business results

With Office 365, Microsoft has created a secure platform to modernize how employees, partners and suppliers communicate, collaborate, and do business anytime and from any device around the globe. These new capabilities can change how your business does business which translates into you helping you succeed, not just function.

Most organizations are successfully using Office 365 for email, but that’s usually as far as they get. They are missing much of the great value Office 365 can provide. By going beyond email and implementing the platform’s advanced social, collaboration, and workflow capabilities, organizations can create a culture of collaboration that serves as a truly differentiating business experience. Office 365 helps your organization technically mature to keep up with new market demands and employee preferences.

Advanced implementation requires a new way of thinking that embraces a technology and culture mindset change. Office 365 modernizes how organizations connect across the business, to build ideas and quickly move ideas to execution while embracing a mindset of technical collaboration.

We invite you to join Centric Consulting for a complimentary event on Tuesday, October 24, 2017 at Downtown Chicago's Microsoft Technology Center, as we explore how we have helped organizations can move beyond the typical drive adoption ofOffice 365 implementationbeyond email to improve organizational collaboration and overall business results through creative new formats, . educating all levels and ages of employees, and putting in place structures to ensure a new business mindset through technology that focuses on results.
