Untapped Potential

Office 365 has grown phenomenally in terms of sales and deployments, however adoption and usage remains low overall.

For those investing in Office 365 this adds up to significant untapped potential – and can lead to a number of negative, and avoidable, consequences:

  • Low adoption and usage means ‘people and process’ benefits are missed, leading to lower ROI from Office 365
  • Increased risks from shadow IT if users opt for alternative applications
  • Unnecessary duplicated spend on software which could be replaced by Office 365
  • For Microsoft Partners, low adoption = low consumption of licenses.

Technology + Adoption = Business Value

The fact is that technology needs to be adopted and used in order for it to deliver value for your workforce and your organisation.

Office 365 can be complex and change is often difficult for users – therefore the inputs and drivers Office 365 adoption & business value need to be well planned and managed.
