What We Can Do For You

Training Plans

You’re new to Office 365 and feeling a bit overwhelmed. Your users are frustrated because they don’t know what to do. You don’t know how to effectively manage your security settings and have sensitive documents you would prefer not to share with the entire organization. You’re confused about Office 365 licensing, don’t know which tool to use when, and the ever changing Azure Portal makes little sense. Let’s work out your pain points, and devise a tailored training program for end users and developers. Empowered users are more engaged, and engaged users are happy users. Together we can improve your adoption headaches and empower your users.

Technical Screening

Moving to the cloud and want to bring on some new developers? You do your own recruiting but you don’t have the people resources to evaluate technical competency. You want a quality resource and are unsure if certifications alone are enough. You’re a recruiting firm, your reputation is important, and you need technical evaluation of candidates. Sounds like you could use some help. Let’s book some time to discuss your hiring strategy & get you connected with great developers and admins.

Roadmap, Mobile & Cloud Strategy

You’re a mid sized business and you’ve moved to Office 365. Your workers are distributed and your business to run on any device, anytime, and from anywhere. You are cautious about your technology investment and want reduced technical debt and lower cost. You want to move to the cloud but don’t want to break the bank. Sounds like we should have a chat. We’ve built Collaboration, Mobile and Cloud Strategy Roadmaps for companies ranging from a few users up to 25,000. We can help you see the forest for the trees.

Wireframing & User Experience Design

Useful, Usable, Desireable, Valuable, Findable, Accessible, Credible: the User Experience Honeycomb. We’ve been designing highly usable Business Tools since the late 90’s. We’ve worked with client business teams to evaluate costs, produce technical specifications & architectures for budgets of all sizes. As the honeycomb suggests, there are many ways we can design a new or improve an existing business system. Let’s talk about your unique challenges and work together to make your content more engaging.

Coaching & Skill Transfer

Learning is a continuous process and this is especially true when it comes to new technology. For most technical people, simply keeping up with day to day work is hard enough without worrying about the latest and greatest release of SharePoint. Our mentoring program enables your team direct access to a team of highly experienced and knowledgeable consultants.

Proof of Concepts

Proof of concepts are a great way to build momentum and gain stakeholder buy in for a significant technology project. Whether you need to run a pilot project for a new social platform or understand how to start mobilizing your sales force, proof of concepts can be a great first step. Our consultants can work both on site or remotely with you and quickly implement proof of concepts; adapting to changing requirements, working to tight deadlines and challenging the status quo. Quickly building out a solution that can gain executive support and be given the green light to advance to full project delivery.
