Microsoft Teams comes with most of Office 365 licenses. If your organization has Office 365 licenses, chances are that you already have Teams. We can help you understand what apps (in addition to Teams) your Office 365 licenses includes. If you don't have Office 365 yet, we can help you get pricing on it.
If your organization already has Teams but it is not fully utilized yet, we can help you increase the adoption and your Office 365 ROI. We have four different workshops to provide you with actionable roadmaps, whether you'd like to better utilize Teams for callings/meetings or collaboration, or get assistant with adoption and change management.

The HR Department at HAVI, a global logistics organization with nearly 10,000 employees worldwide, was having trouble onboarding new employees. Their process relied heavily on email and manual entry. Given the volume of employees, this manual entry could lead to errors that would take weeks to remediate.
Now, new hires can use Teams to complete their paperwork online. With data integration and automation enabled, Teams automatically uploads the documents into HAVI's HR system, assigns tasks to the other necessary departments (i.e. Payroll and IT) to carry out the action items involved with onboarding.
With this automation in place, HAVI's processing time for new employees has been significantly reduced. What used to take 5+ hours now takes approximately 40 minutes. The automated coordination ensures that each new employee has exactly what they need on their first day of work. Read more about HAVI's story here.
