Solutions Primer (original with ‘Investment’ section)

Entry-level service for IT and business teams looking to understand and leverage the capabilities of the wider Microsoft 365 toolkit.

Our Solutions Primer service uses small group sessions facilitated by Microsoft 365 experts to inspire and upskill delegates on the powerful capabilities of tools including Teams, SharePoint and the Power Platform suite, and less familiar services such as Lists and Forms.

Each group benefits from an introductory session to showcase tool capabilities and upskill delegates, followed later by a solutions-focused workshop to explore ways in which Microsoft 365 tools and solutions can support specific business requirements and use cases. Sessions are tailored to your Microsoft 365 and business context and requirements, with each group receiving a follow-up report summarising the focus areas, use cases and potential solutions identified in the sessions.

Designed for organisations which have deployed Microsoft 365 – including Teams and SharePoint, and ideally with access to some or all Power Platform services. Aimed at teams working together on common requirements or processes, including:

  • IT / Microsoft 365 project teams
