Socius Partners with BrainStorm to Enhance Office 365 Managed Services Offerings

Socius, an award-winning business technology and consulting company, is excited to announce a deeper partnership with BrainStorm as a move to enhance Office 365 Managed Services offerings.

BrainStorm QuickHelp is a 360-degree training and adoption platform that helps users adopt Microsoft technologies faster, work more efficiently together, and ultimately alters the way they work.

Delivered by Socius, this unique offering is aligned with the Microsoft CSP/Managed Services Model, offering all of the QuickHelp benefits in a monthly subscription. BrainStorm has created a self-serve QuickHelp portal that enables Socius to provision accounts and manage on behalf of their SMB customers with managed services.  Under this partnership, Socius will offer subscriptions to BrainStorm’s QuickHelp platform as part of their managed services offering for Office 365.

With the help of Socius’s on-staff QuickHelp Success Manager, customers will have the benefit of a product expert who can manage and monitor usage, add custom content, and more.

BrainStorm QuickHelp addresses the evolving needs of Office 365 customers by offering targeted learning content at each stage of deployment and adoption.  While traditional training supports users only during the initial stages of deployment, QuickHelp grows with users to help foster a culture of learning, growth, and increased productivity.

Some benefits of BrainStorm QuickHelp include:

  • Ease Deployment of Office 365
  • Reduce Help Desk Calls
  • Measured Accountability
  • Drives Ongoing Productivity
  • Ability to upload custom content


Socius offers five Office 365 licensing plans to meet the needs of small, midsized, and enterprise businesses and believes the partnership will:

  • Enable Office 365 clients to receive maximum value from their investment not only in Office 365, but other integrated business applications such as Microsoft Dynamics 365
  • Enable Socius to provide an even more customized experience to help clients transform and grow
  • Further deliver against the Socius One Cloud commitment to serve as a single-source cloud provider for clients
  • Strengthen the Socius commitment to guiding and enabling clients through their own digital transformations


“We are extremely eager to be furthering our relationship and business with BrainStorm,” said Lance Knepper, Director of the Socius One Cloud practice. “Office 365 is extremely beneficial and with a greater extension of our Managed Services offerings, clients will see an even deeper value and satisfaction of Office 365.”

As a Direct (1Tier) Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider, Socius offers clients the convenience of unified billing, management and support of cloud-based solutions such as Office 365, Dynamics 365 for Sales, Field Service, Operations and Financials, and Microsoft Azure-based services such as laaS, SaaS, PaaS, Dev/Ops, and Backup and Recovery.
