Adapting Your Business in Times of Crisis

Managing technology, people and cost

Enable your workforce to collaborate in the cloud

Microsoft Teams allows your workforce to stay connected via messaging, voice and video calls, and productive with document collaboration and the creation of virtual workspaces. This pre-recorded webinar on Teams aimed at IT managers will give an overview of how Teams can benefit your business.

Don’t have Teams?

Microsoft has made Teams trial licenses available for up to 1,000 users and free Office 365 E1 trial licenses for up to 3000 users for up to 6 months. Speak to SoftwareONE about how to access these.

For your end users, we have two on-demand webinars to help them learn their way around Teams:

How to manage cashflow

For the foreseeable future, cash is going to be king. Getting it in and holding onto it is essential to covering your payroll and to enable your business to continue to function.

Some ways you can do this:

  • Review and assess your tier 1 vendor contracts: do they reflect changes you're making to your workforce and/or business models and new technology you’re deploying? Deep analysis of your specific requirements and tier 1 contracts can deliver significant savings.
  • Review your long tail software spend and contract renewals: make savings here by identifying contracts and vendors that can be consolidated and think about digitising your supply chain to create efficiencies through automation.
  • Get clarity on what you’re paying for and using: It’s important to know what software your organization has deployed and critically, what is consumed – both in the cloud and on premise. SoftwareONE has many years experience in utilising data from different sources to ensure it is accurate and useable to make cost-saving decisions.

Every penny counts at this time, so ensure you only buy or renew exactly what you need, when you need, in the optimal way. Sign up to our upcoming webinar.

How to ensure your remote workforce remains secure

With employees using a range of devices remotely, securing your Office environment is critical. This pre-recorded webinar takes you through the security features in Microsoft 365. If you want to speak to an expert on how to use the security features you’re already paying for or to upgrade to add those features, contact us. We can also advise about other security solutions like those from Barracuda and Trend Micro, specifically focused on protecting your remote workforce.

Backing up your Office 365 environment

With a more distributed workforce, it’s important to backup your Office 365 environment. Learn what is automatically backed up and what isn’t in this webinar.

How to keep staff morale up

Many staff members may not be used to remote working. This blog provides useful tips on how to maintain productivity and well-being when working from home.
