Eitex helped a nationwide building control company consolidate systems by implementing Microsoft 365 Business Standard across the board.
Assent Building Control is a company of approved inspectors proving building control services to the construction industry with over 60 different office locations throughout the UK.
The growth of Assent has meant more employees, more office space, and more technology resources; which resulted in several different systems being used for various tasks. It became evident that Assent needed to consolidate their efforts with a unified solution.
Microsoft 365 Sharepoint
Part of the solution was to implement Sharepoint for Assent. Sharepoint gives one centralised space for collaboration and sharing files/folders/data. Workflow processes are automated streamlining the company and communications. Sharepoint enables employees to work from anywhere and on any device, whether from the office, in the car, or especially now, working from home! Sharepoint has become an essential tool due to the current COVID-19 pandemic as most staff are now on lock-down.
Collaborate with Microsoft Teams
Assent is now also taking advantage of Microsoft Teams! The cloud system allows them to work together collaboratively, regardless of their geographic location by using Microsoft Teams. Channels and Office 365 Groups allow staff and associates to connect with one another to share ideas and work as a team and this has been a big win for Assent. If working in Word, Excel, PowerPoint, or Visio files, colleagues can view, edit, and collaborate on them, right within Teams.
Microsoft 365 Business Standard
Assent’s investment in collaborating their business couldn’t be more timely with coronavirus impacting almost every business across the globe. Although the implementation wasn’t designed for flexible home-working, the cloud platform is allowing the workforce to work safely from their homes.
