Implement the Modern Workplace with Microsoft 365

The working world has evolved in the last few years. Remote and hybrid working is becoming more and more acceptable – and in some cases necessary – for many organisations.

The advent of the modern workplace means employees want the flexibility of hybrid working, both in terms of hours and environments. Organisations need to save on costs, and office rentals take up a huge chunk of that money. To make this happen, you need an infrastructure which can adapt to your organisation, provide the security needed to allow for both remote working and outside devices, facilitate collaboration across the country as well as globally, and create an intranet complete with all of the tools required for your day-to-day working.

This is where the modern workplace with Microsoft 365 and OfficeLabs come in.

Migrate to a platform with secure, reliable access

Because Microsoft 365 is cloud-based, there are no overheads for servers or physical infrastructure. You can access all of your files from any device, and the Office products you are used to (Word, Excel, Outlook, and so on) are accessible from a browser as well as via desktop applications. No prior IT knowledge is needed to move to the cloud, and OfficeLabs can help you migrate your files to SharePoint from whatever location they are currently in – whether that’s a network share, a Google Drive, or a different CMS entirely. We are experts in the migration arena and can plan and carry out a file migration on your behalf, removing the headache of transferring to a new system.

Furthermore, Microsoft are so confident in the robustness of their infrastructure that they offer a 99.9% guaranteed uptime for business users, meaning you can be assured that you’ll have access to files wherever you are in the world, and at any time of the day or night.

Connectivity, collaboration and training

Microsoft 365 provides a suite of productivity tools which include voice and video calling, document management, a corporate social network, and business intelligence software. While the number of applications that come with Microsoft 365 may seem initially overwhelming, OfficeLabs provide training to both business owners and end users tailored to the level of technical experience they require. This can include helping set up apps such as Teams, creating a SharePoint intranet, or advising on OneDrive usage. We can also build productivity solutions for you using Power Automate and Power BI.

Each user gets a huge 1TB of storage, so there won’t be any worry about running out of space for their files. Combined with the ability to provide multi-party HD video, shared calendars and team chat in Teams, Microsoft 365 is essential for collaboration between your teams. The licensing model is subscription-based and can be scaled to your organisation – contact OfficeLabs to find out what package works best for you.

We have deployed Microsoft 365 to dozens of satisfied businesses, as well as implementing bespoke solutions such as these:

Invoice Approvals – OfficeLabs used a combination of SharePoint, SharePoint Syntex and Power BI to create an invoice approval system which provided key analytics, as well as automating tasks that were taking literally weeks of manual work by employees to complete.

Microsoft 365 Credit Control Platform – Multiple Microsoft 365 applications were used to create a sophisticated credit control platform for international engineering company Kone, which replaced their archaic system of Excel spreadsheets.

Asset Management – OfficeLabs created a Power App, built on SharePoint and integrated with Teams, to capture assets loaned to staff and to follow them through the entire process, negating the need for manual paper forms.

How Can OfficeLabs Help?

These are just some of the benefits that Microsoft 365 can offer your company. When you book an appointment with an OfficeLabs consultant, they will talk to you in depth about your business needs, and how best to utilise the power of Microsoft 365. Remember, Microsoft 365 project planning is just one of our capabilities. Making sure your business runs as smoothly and efficiently as possible is why OfficeLabs has been chosen by both FTSE 250 companies and public sector bodies, and our no-jargon approach will let you talk to us with confidence about your requirements.
