. . . by saving you time on the jobs you do day in, day out
It's so frustrating isn't it?
Hours wasted performing the same repetitive tasks. Time you could spend far more productively.
- Are inundated with emails that take forever to deal with
- Find it difficult to collaborate with clients or employees when you're not in the same place
- Can't easily find documents because they're scattered across your network
If this is you, let us take away your pain.
The answer is Microsoft 365 – it used to be called Office 365.
Whatever you know it as, it does so much more than email, word processing, spreadsheets, etc.
Here’s just a few of the things it can do and the app that does it – you'll know the first two I'm sure:
- Email – Outlook for your email
- Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc – Office suite
- To store your personal files – OneDrive
- So you and your colleagues can collaborate – Teams
- To manage content across your company – SharePoint
. . . there's several dozen more too.
And here's 4 key benefits of using Microsoft 365 . . .

Want to be even more productive?
The trouble is, it can be hard to make Microsoft 365 do what you need – with so many apps, where do you start?
Which is why our Microsoft 365 Framework is perfect for you.
It's a bit like a duck. Let me explain . . .
Above the surface – where you are – Microsoft 365 Framework is simple to use. So you and your colleagues glide along with your work.
However, underwater, Microsoft 365 Framework is paddling hard. It:
- Provides the structure holding everything together
- Links all the bits of Microsoft 365 you need
- Comes with 'templates' so you're quickly up and running – we can easily adapt any template to suit your business
- Is the foundation for your document control and electronic workflows
If you're a little more technically minded and want to understand how we do this, just click here.
The key component is SharePoint Online.
We use this to build your intranet sites – made up of Communication sites, Hub sites and Team sites. These store your documents, data, calendars, news, links and much more.
Teams is then linked to the SharePoint intranet. Your
users do their day-to-day collaboration in Teams – chat, meet, share files, work with business apps – while easily switching back and forth to the intranet.
Here are six ways our Microsoft 365 Framework helps you and your colleagues
1. Improves employee engagement. Find out more
