Microsoft 365 applications and services are essential for most digital workplaces, but digital workplaces aren’t just about writing emails or creating PowerPoint presentations. Staff often also need to grapple with ERP, CRM, PLM and other systems – and this is precisely where “digital adoption” comes into play. This term describes the harmonization of staff, processes and technologies. It is only when these three cogs mesh together perfectly that new tools and software are used correctly and their potential is truly understood. Solutions such as QuickAccess help boost digital adoption in your organization – regardless of whether it’s SAP S/4HANA, Salesforce or Microsoft 365, etc.
