The free one-day seminar hosted by a trio of specialist companies was always going to be incredibly useful: hosted Microsoft’s Paddington Office (London), the seminar was due to introduce several digital tips and tricks to aid businesses with maximising the potential of people and realising business goals.

PointSolutions presented solutions whereby we learned how to visually depict skills gaps within a business – this proved thoroughly advantageous for understanding complex information in a user-friendly manner.  AvePoint graciously highlighted the most suitable Office 365 apps for specific purposes – explaining the difference between Teams and Yammer, SharePoint and One Drive, whilst also alluding to Skype for Business. The complex navigation of such apps became clear and we gained an understanding as to which apps are most suitable for which process. Combined Knowledge provided an excellent insight into the challenges we face in training and adoption, and the solutions available to counteract these challenges, brought to life through case studies from recent projects.

Throughout the sessions it became apparent that the utilisation of many Office 365 tools such as PowerBI, PowerApps, and Flow are vital to digital transformation and improving efficiency in a business; during the sessions we learned that these apps can be configured with ease to streamline business processes – making many tasks easier and even giving the ability to automate tedious work items.  Delegates found the presentations incredibly relevant and thought-provoking; enhanced by the good mix of presenters and styles. The atmosphere moulded itself to be a welcoming, open forum, where comments and questions were welcomed at every opportunity – the event leant itself to an engaging two-way and group discussions.

PointSolutions run many events, both with and without partners, to find out more about these valuable, knowledge-driven sessions please visit our events page!
