[Boston] Driving Office 365 Adoption

September 25, 2018 — 5:00 to 7:30pm
Microsoft New England R&D Center, Cambridge, MA

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 you do 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. It also modernizes how organizations connect across the business to build and quickly move ideas to execution while embracing a mindset of technical collaboration. But advanced implementation requires a new way of thinking that embraces a technology and culture mindset change.

Join Centric Consulting for a complimentary event on Tuesday, September 25, 2018 at the Microsoft Office in Boston as we explore how we have helped organizations move beyond the typical Office 365 implementation to improve organizational collaboration and results all levels and ages of employees by putting in place a structure that drives a new business mindset through technology.
