Microsoft Teams & Yammer are revolutionising the way people work together.

With built-in integration with the full Office 365 stack, it is easier than ever for organisations to effectively collaborate and engage.

But if that’s the case, why is your organisation’s user adoption rate for Microsoft Teams & Yammer is so much lower than it is for Outlook?

The truth is email is ingrained and changing user habits is difficult. Studies show that only about 34% of users are willing to use new technology rollouts within the enterprise. To make the most of your Office 365 investment, it is critical that your users take advantage of Microsoft Teams and Yammer’s full capabilities to address their day-to-day business needs. The key to drive excitement, organisational buy-in and adoption is being able to provide relevant, business-contextual applications that drive consistent, sustainable usage.

Join AvePoint and Microsoft for a half-day workshop to learn how to roll out a sustainable adoption program in 90 days and positively impact organisational culture.

This interactive workshop will cover:

  • What is the role of Microsoft Teams & Yammer in today’s modern workplace?
