Two-Part Action Planning Workshop

Do you need help to get started with making the switch from paper-based systems and processes?
Join us for this introductory workshop that will cover the foundations of how you can use your Microsoft 365 tools to standardise and automate day-to-day business processes, and how you can also use Microsoft as your document management system.

If you are primarily using paper and manual processes to manage your business or you have lots of document duplication, paper tick sheets and you are updating numerous Excel spreadsheets then this workshop is for you. It will provide some insights that will help you automate and reduce some of these manual tasks.

We know many SME’s are using Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint & PAPER so this two-part action planning workshop is designed to help you fully utilise your Microsoft 365 Business licenses. 

During this two-part action planning workshop, expert Mark Cawar will explore and help you review the other tools that you may have with the licenses you have purchased. You will get a better understanding of how these tools can help you automate business processes, you will get a guide on the document management system, tasks, your to do’s list and general improvement with internal communications for your office and your team.

The workshop will also explore remote working and how information can be communicated to your team, customers or suppliers efficiently and effectively through portals and company web pages.
