Socius Expands Value of Office 365 with Professional and Managed Services Offerings

Socius, a Microsoft Gold Partner and Microsoft Direct (1Tier) Cloud Solution Provider (CSP), is excited to announce the launch of a suite of professional and managed services offerings for Microsoft Office 365.

Office 365 is Microsoft’s cloud-based suite of productivity and collaboration tools that includes applications such as Exchange Online, Skype for Business, Teams, OneDrive for Business, SharePoint Online as well as familiar applications such as Word, Excel and PowerPoint.

It’s easy to underestimate the amount of attention required for long-term successful use of Office 365, causing low adoption rates across both the SMB and Enterprise markets. This presents a clear need for ongoing commitment to an organization’s investment in transforming the way their teams communicate, collaborate and produce. That’s where Socius can help.

“Office 365 is dramatically improving our clients’ ability to work and collaborate. Our managed services offering is a way to ensure they are completely successful in rolling it out and fully utilizing its capabilities,” said Jeffrey R. Geisler, CEO of Socius.

Understanding that Office 365 is a ‘line of business’ application and not a typical IT project, Socius’ managed services offerings leverage the teams’ deep experience with taking a business-driven approach to implementing technologies to help clients transform and grow.

“For clients to receive the most value from their investment in Office 365, they need a partner who will meet them where they’re at and help them get where they’re going. We’ve designed our managed services for Office 365 offerings to do just that,” said Lance Knepper, Director, Socius One Cloud.

Socius offers 5 distinct deployment and managed services plans that accommodate both new and existing Office 365 clients.

Key features include:

· Strategic planning services

· Expert onboarding, deployment and migration services

· Admin training

· BrainStorm QuickHelp – automated user adoption and training platform

· A Dedicated Adoption Specialist with success checks and reporting

· Managed Office 365 administration

· 24x7x365 Support

Key benefits include:

· Easy access to support from a Partner who knows your business

· Quicker and stronger return on investment

· Less pain and fewer risks while maximizing value

· Focus your team on more strategic initiatives

· Reduce the headaches of everyday management of Office 365
