Accelerate ahead of the curve with a Microsoft Modern Workplace

Living+Breathing the Modern Workplace Revolution

The future of work and the role of the workplace is changing. For people-centric organisations, the new way of working is an intelligent blend of the physical and virtual; empowering people to do their best work while championing equal collaboration experiences, wherever they are. The hybrid office is the modern workplace, redefined.

What is the new Modern Workplace?

At its core, the new modern workplace is an intelligent blend of physical and digital workspace. It operates using the suite of Microsoft 365 technologies and productivity applications that harness the power of the Cloud to bring together the best of both worlds. The post-pandemic blueprint for a modern workplace is one that champions flexibility, productivity and security while meeting the operational needs of your business with those of their workforce.

Improved employee experience and wellbeing.

How we work across the physical and digital has changed; bringing with it the associated challenges we are now all too familiar with. Now, more than ever, it’s essential to use the right tools and technology so you can meet the operational needs of your business with the heartbeat of your company: its people.

Effective collaboration and communication.

Create a unified experience. Empower your team to innovate, create and collaborate by equipping them with the tools and technologies needed for easy access to apps, sites, services, information, and document from anywhere, anytime or any location.

Frictionless management of information and data.

Tackle the issues of distributed team, hybrid workforce, multiple devices and complex security issues in an evolving landscape. Reimage business processes with a simplified and intelligent approach to workplace management by utilising the power of the Cloud.

Enterprise-grade security.

Microsoft’s end-to-end secure workplace capabilities leverage the most powerful security features in the Microsoft 365 productivity suite, including Identity and Access Management, Advancd Threat Protection and End Point Management; providing your business and its people with a secure environment that adapts to evolving threats and future disruptions.

Why transition to a truly Modern Workplace?

The events of 2020 have magnified modern business challenges and dramatically changed the way we work. It’s time to harness the power of a modern workplace experience and rethink your digital transformation journey – what resonates with you?

Lack of agility to react to unexpected change

On-premises systems and ways of working make it hard for us to adapt to external forces or internal demands.

Ageing applications and legacy infrastructure

Some systems are high maintenance. We’d like to accelerate our cloud migration, but things are tricky.

Employee wellbeing

Poor work-life balance, workplace stress, mental health, and its impact on physical health. Shifting and extending working patterns.

Cybersecurity and compliance

Altered working practices and the explosion in cyber-crime mean our data is at greater risk of accidental leakage and theft.

Limited automation

Because our systems don’t talk to each other, we burn time on low-level, repetitive tasks.

Insufficient governance

We rushed to adopt solutions like Teams and SharePoint in the midst of the pandemic. We need better controls.

Internal comms

We need better ways to engage with our peeps but are unsure which comms tools to use when. Too many emails! Important messages aren’t seen or get lost.

Information management

Multiple versions of docs; no single source of truth. Limited search and discoverability. People have their individual systems. No central knowledge bank.

Culture

Now we’re working separately we’ve lost our sense of community. Some of us are struggling with remote working, while others prefer it. We need to strike the right balance.

Hybrid working

We need offline as well as online capabilities, and to give our users fluid experiences regardless of their device or location.

Microsoft 365 is the modern toolkit for unified communications, collaboration and productivity. The intelligently interconnected ecosystem provides an intuitive experience for your end-users while ensuring scalability and resilience for your business.
