Free Office 365 Courses (Limited Time)

I’ve found that most users (and many IT Pros in fact) are confused about what Office 365 actually is.  Many think of it as just the traditional Office Apps – Word, Excel, etc – but paid for with a monthly fee.  Some just think of it as Hosted Exchange or maybe SharePoint.

But if you pay attention to what Microsoft is doing, there are a lot of very interesting things being done inside the Office 365 ecosystem.  It’s clear to me that Microsoft envisions a future where Office 365 is once again the center of the business productivity world, just like Outlook was and still is for many people.

Two new applications inside Office 365 illustrate my point perfectly: Groups and Planner.  Groups is a group collaboration tool offering a shared area for conversations, calendar, file sharing, notes, and connections to outside tools like Zendesk or Asana.  Planner works with Groups and adds a simple but powerful project delegation and team management function. Both are pretty easy to use and available for any Office 365 business plan users to setup on their own.

Bigger Brains is proud to be the first in the industry to launch training courses on Office 365 Groups and Planner, as part of a new series of courses that also includes OneDrive, Skype for Business, and the Outlook Web App.

Through May 10 we’re making both courses available FREE via the links below:

Dear {Firstname},

As you know we’ve been recommending Office 365 to our business clients because it offers a compelling value with the traditional Office apps (Word, Excel, Outlook, etc) as well as business-class hosted email and file sharing. 

Microsoft has added several impressive new features to help businesses be more productive, including new tools called Groups and Planner.  Our partners at Bigger Brains have produced training courses for Groups and Planner, and we’re pleased to make these available for you and your staff through May 10:

Office 365 is already the fastest growing product in Microsoft’s history, and we believe these new features will continue to make it even better.  

If you are already using Office 365 and would like additional training or support in implementing these new features, we’re happy to help. 

If you aren’t yet using Office 365, I hope these free courses give you a glimpse of the productive tools available, and we would be glad to schedule some time to talk with you about what migrating to Office 365 might look like for your business. 

As always if you need assistance with any IT needs, call on us anytime.
