New Ways to Empower & Connect Your Firstline Workers with Microsoft Teams

firstline-workers---teams

Microsoft Teams has introduced three new ways to help organizations grow by improving the way their firstline workers become digitally connected.

Are your firstline workers valued, connected and empowered in your organization? If not, that may be the factor holding your company back from further annual growth. Firstline workers are people who work in service or task-oriented roles across a variety of industries such as retail, hospitality or manufacturing. Empowering these workers with the digital tools and platforms they need to serve customers, share information and improve productivity creates competitive advantage. Studies have shown that organizations that empower their firstline workers receive huge benefits. Firstline workers consist of more than two billion people worldwide but they are often overlooked in the majority of organizations. However, according to this Forbes & Microsoft Insights study, when firstline workers are given full technology capabilities, greater autonomy and higher levels of information sharing, the company is three times more likely to be a high-growth company. More than 80% of companies see higher levels of customer satisfaction and higher levels of job satisfaction among employees when their firstline workers are digitally connected.

Ready or Not - Microsoft Teams is taking over!
Do You Have a Plan?

There’s a major shift coming up for companies using Skype for Business, and whether they’re ready or not, Microsoft Teams will be taking over. There has been a lot of improvement since Teams first rolled out, and Microsoft announced they would be phasing out Skype. The roadmap for this integration is complete, and Teams is now the go-to solution for collaboration services. However, we know that with this big shift companies will inevitably have questions and concerns.

Upgrading from Skype for Business is more than just a technical migration – it will be a transformation in how your users communicate, and change is not always easy. It's time to start planning your path to Teams today – Microsoft recommends upgrading quickly as possible to optimize your benefits and ease the transition. 

Join Interlink in our webinar to help you develop a migration strategy and to answer commonly asked questions. 

After this event, you will have a good understanding of:

  • Why Teams is Replacing Skype 
  • The Future of Skype
  • How to Develop a Teams Migration Strategy
  • What Happens Post-Migration

Local-Administrator-Password-Solution-LAPS

Keeping your organization secure is a top priority – so what is credential hygiene and why is it important?

Good credential hygiene means not exposing credentials on a potentially-compromised system when those credentials can be used to compromise other systems. Credentials can be a password, an account’s NTLM hash, or a Kerberos TGT. When these kinds of credentials are hacked, there is the potential for the entire company to be at risk. That’s where Microsoft’s Local Administrator Password Solution (LAPS) can come into play.

Is Your Microsoft Enterprise Agreement (EA) Renewal Coming Up?

Enterprise-Agreement---EA

For many companies, the end of their Microsoft EA is coming up this June, and it’s time to think about renewal or alternate options like A Cloud Solution Provider (CSP).

Choice is critical in business, but sometimes it’s difficult to determine the best decision for your specific organization. Such is the case when it comes to contracting services for Azure and your other Microsoft cloud applications. For many years, the best choice for larger organizations was signing up for an Enterprise Agreement (EA) directly with Microsoft. However, now there is a new option called Cloud Service Provider (CSP), a contract you can purchase from a certified Microsoft partner like Interlink.

Both offer similar services and similar pricing. There are advantages and disadvantages to both depending on your size and type of business. So, how do you decide what’s the right choice for your organization? Below is a look at the two options in several key areas.

Thankfully there are new options for sharing and collaborating on files.
