Transformation through Microsoft Technology
Planning. Training. Delivery.
Here at Utilize, we’ve been living and breathing Teams Live Events during lockdown, and beyond. Weekly companywide updates from our CEO, virtual quizzes, lunch & learn sessions for our staff; you name it, we’re doing it.
We have also been helping our customers to better reach out to their own staff, their own customers and partners, all using the power of Teams.
Many organisations have suffered with engagement and interactive reach during the last few months, whether it be helping to fundraise in the charity sector, showing customers how to use a new website, or even running a virtual trade show.
