HCS Business Solutions, Microsoft’s first Gold Small Business partner in Ireland, plans to announce a new series of free Microsoft Office training workshops in 2014.
The free practical, hands-on training workshops entitled “A New World of Work” are designed to give small business managers, owners and business decision makers the opportunity to “test drive” the new suite of Microsoft technologies including Office 365, Sharepoint and Windows 8 across phone, tablet and PC.
According to Neil Phelan, Director, HCS Business Solutions, the decision to roll out further workshops in 2014 was based on the popularity of the current tranche.
“We have been delighted with the response to these training workshops. Since they were announced in late September, the workshops in Waterford, Kilkenny and Dublin were fully subscribed within days.”
“That is why we made the decision to conduct a further series of “A New World of Work” workshops in 2014. It goes to show that businesses today, regardless of their size or number of employees, are conscious of addressing the ever changing work – life balance. How we work and interact with our colleagues and clients remotely has an effect on productivity, efficiencies and the bottom line.”
Michelle Casey, Pre Qualification Manager, Winthrop Engineering, attended one
of the New World of Work training workshops recently. “The course was practical and applicable to many of the situations and scenarios I encounter every day”, she said.
“Before, some of these scenarios would have seemed problematic and disruptive, however working with the Office 365 range of features made these problems insignificant. Also because the course was conducted on a wide suite of platforms such as tablet, PC and smartphone it was easy to see how Winthrop
Engineering Ltd. could benefit through implementing these technological developments without any major outlay.”
Mr. Phelan added, “These training workshops examine how our approach to technology must change as we work increasingly on the move and away from the office. By introducing day to day scenarios participants are able to understand how these new productivity tools and technologies can enhance their business.”
