Microsoft-Kaizala

See what Microsoft Kaizala is, how you get it, and how it’s different from Microsoft Teams

______________________________

A common struggle for organizations is figuring out the best way to bridge the gap in communication between corporate offices and their firstline workers – the people who work in service or task-oriented roles across a variety of industries such as retail, hospitality or manufacturing. Oftentimes, associates in these roles want a more convenient and secure way to connect with their team, view company resources, and manage their schedules or shift changes. As a solution, Microsoft has developed Kaizala – the messaging app that brings unique capabilities to Microsoft 365, with its ability to connect and engage people both inside and outside of an organization’s directory – including contract workers, vendors, partners, suppliers, and customers.

Sound a little familiar? Microsoft Teams already offers features like instant chat, mobile applications, and even Shifts for firstline workers, so why do you need a Kaizala integration at all? Kaizala was designed to complement Teams – which is why Microsoft recently announced they would be delivering Kaizala capabilities into Microsoft Teams as part of an integrated offering. Read on to learn more about Kaizala, including what it is, how you get it, and how it's different from Teams...

Leveraging Your Microsoft Investments

Presentation and Panelist Discussion on Tips for Getting True Adoption by End Users
_______________________________________

We would bet that Microsoft makes up one of the largest spends of your IT budget – but are you making the most of it? Microsoft Teams, collaboration, adoption and change management are all hot topics right now. Why? Because they are all revolutionizing the way companies work, communicate and drive productivity. Office 365 solutions, like Teams, enable your employees to achieve business outcomes – cost savings, time savings, simplifying and automating processes. However, these outcomes can only be achieved if end-users adopt and want to use the new technology…and use it as intended. People often resist change and those resistors can prevent success, but most often people resist technology when they don’t know how or when to use it. So, what are the best ways to drive successful adoption in your organization?

Check out the video below documenting an event with Interlink and one of our clients, G&J Pepsi, as we dive into Teams, Office 365 and Adoption – sharing tips on how to make the most of your Microsoft Investments.
