How our Microsoft Modern Desktop Works

Ready to upgrade to the Microsoft Modern Workplace? Optimising IT makes it easy with our four-step plan to success:

1. Evaluation

Together, we’ll analyse your current requirements for Microsoft 365 services. We’ll look at what tasks you need to complete using the platform and what options are available to you. Some factors to consider include:

  • Number of employees/team members
  • Whether you’re a large corporate, SME or charity
  • What software you need based on your tasks.

This evaluation is completed through a consultancy appointment.

2. Optimisation

Once we’re clear on what your business or organisation needs, we need to match up your requirements to the best licensing subscription packages available. This step of the process is all about carefully considering every option on the table and deciding on the perfect opportunity to help your organisation flourish.

3. Introduction

Once you’re happy with the license package we’ve designed for you, we’ll agree on a total price and sign on the dotted line. You’ll then be able to add us to your Microsoft account as an official business partner so that we can manage your Microsoft tenancy and get the ball rolling.
