Teamwork Assessment with up to £2,000 of free consulting services.

Improve employee productivity and engagement via Microsoft Teams with up to £2,000 of free consulting services.

According to the CBI and Oracle’s report ‘bigger, faster, stronger’ from summer 2019, greater adoption of technology could unlock productivity and add up to £100bn to the UK economy as well as reducing income inequality by 5%. And, organisations investing in collaboration services are five times more likely to empower their workforce to become more agile, efficient and secure.

As a 9x Gold accredited Microsoft partner, we are now offering a Teamwork Assessment service that will help you better manage the upheavals of the Coronavirus pandemic and maintain business continuity.

The Teamwork assessment is, at its core, a day of consulting delivered by Silversands experts and (for eligible companies) paid for by Microsoft, focused on helping you get the most out of the Microsoft Teams collaboration tools.

The Microsoft 365 Teamwork Assessment facilitates and focuses business and IT decision-maker discussions on investments that can improve employee productivity and engagement. The assessment enables customers to use Microsoft Teams to realise business use cases and scenarios that drive business priorities.

This is a unique opportunity for organisations at an early stage in their Microsoft Teams journey who are already actively using Exchange Online. Organisations who are further along can also benefit if they recognise a need for app development with Microsoft Teams.

This program is on a first come first serve basis for each eligible customer up to the funding cap and time limit set by Microsoft.

As you are aware Microsoft 365 is a maturing suite of rich productivity, communication and collaboration tools that can help many businesses unlock their full potential. And our Teamwork Assessment workshops help guide you towards getting the best return on your investment, improving productivity and promoting best practice within Microsoft Teams.

Our Teamwork Assessment comprises two workshops:
