When we hear terms like “Digital Workplace” or “Digital Transformation,” we often think of lengthy, expensive initiatives requiring consulting engagements and highly specialized software. Certainly digitizing an organization has many facets, and some efforts do require a major shift across your organization. However, one critical component of Digital Transformation may be easier to achieve than you realize: creating the foundation for a Digital Workplace. With help from Insight, it can be as easy as 1, 2, 3.
1. Create a Plan
Insight has focused on helping organizations implement a digital workplace for many years. We’ve helped foster successful outcomes for our clients by providing the right technologies and processes, as well as the guidance they need on employee engagement so they can handle more contemporary ways of working. Through our experience, we know what works and what doesn’t, and we know what needs to be customized and what can be used off the shelf. We put our experience to work helping clients put together a plan for creating, and then maintaining, their own Digital Workplace.
2. Configure Software (That You Probably Already Have)
The foundation of the digital workplace concept is collaboration — specifically, making information, documents, and data available to your employees when they need them. We help you to establish a culture of collaboration by building excitement around technologies you probably already own: Microsoft Office 365 and SharePoint Online. These powerful digital tools are already familiar to many employees, and they serve as the keys to unlocking your own Digital Workplace.
3. Get Started
Of course, you may just need a little guidance on getting started, like which key to use and when. With the expertise that Insight delivers, we can help you to achieve a Digital Workplace more quickly and efficiently – a master key of sorts to your digital future. When you are ready to unlock the door to your own Digital Workplace, Insight is here to help get you and your workforce started.
Insight has bundled our knowledge and experience into three offerings that you can leverage to achieve a thriving Digital Workplace:
- SharePoint QuickStart
Insight's flat-fee project will get your SharePoint environment up and running in just four weeks. We kick it off with an Office 365 orientation, where your key stakeholders can learn how to make Office 365 work for them. We then implement a SharePoint solution that includes a mobile-accessible landing page and up to five sub-sites that can be used by individual departments or corporate units. We finish by designing the site to ensure a seamless and intuitive user experience, help you populate it with content, and then teach your administrators and power users how to support it.
- Office 365 One-Stop Service
Microsoft is always coming out with great new features and capabilities for Office 365. Rather than carrying the burden of learning, customizing, and implementing Office 365 and SharePoint features, you can take advantage of Insight's expertise. We’ve created a service that gives your organization cost-effective access to the world of Office 365. In essence, we create a partnership through which our team becomes an extension of your team, supporting the ongoing needs of your organization, at a fraction of the cost of having an in-house team.
- Office 365 Training
Remember the days of “Build it, and they will come?” It didn’t work then, and it doesn’t work now. Any Digital Workplace initiative requires some element of user training. Insight can help you build a cost-effective and customizable program to meet your end-user training needs for Office 365, or any other application for that matter. Our learning consultants can create and implement a user engagement program that combines standardized technical training with company-specific training materials to highlight customized features of your Office 365 environment.
