Programmes that work seamlessly together enhance communication and boost productivity. They keep staff outside the office in touch with those inside, and ensure data is always current.
UK Needs to Boost Productivity
Research shows that UK businesses are falling behind in productivity compared to other countries. The Office of National statistics reports that productivity between July and September of 2016 rose by only 0.4%. That’s a fair way short of the government’s 2.1% target.
Part of the government’s plan to address this issue includes infrastructure upgrades across all business sectors. For many, ‘infrastructure’ translates into a wider adoption of digital and cloud technology. Already, nearly 40% of UK businesses use Office 365, putting it in the lead, well ahead of other platforms.
No surprise really, as Office bundles together multiple products needed by business. These include Skype, Sharepoint, OneDrive for Business and Dynamics CRM, among others.
Research also shows that companies which embrace cloud technology grow faster than those who don’t. They also achieve profits around 26% higher than those who hang onto old ways of working. Being cloud-based allows for greater competitiveness too. We’ve all heard the saying ‘work smarter, not harder’. Cloud technology with Office 365 makes it a reality.
Security Assured with Office 365
If the Cloud sounds like something of a wild card in business security, it’s reassuring to work with an established and responsible organisation like Microsoft.
Enterprise grade security ensures full control over access and data flow. It keeps the connections between people inside and outside the company secure. Those people could be contractors, partners, employees or suppliers. In one form or another, they could all have access across many platforms and devices.
Attitudes towards enterprise in the Cloud are maturing. Most companies are now doing some experimentation with Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). Those not ready to launch straight into cloud-based operations can also adopt hybrid solutions.
At Eitex, our long term mission is to help every company maximise their productivity through Cloud technology.
We run Office 365 Taster Sessions for business who are unfamiliar with cloud-based working. We can advise on solutions for all types of enterprise. If your technology is holding you back, we’d be delighted to help get your business moving again.

Exceptional service from the Eitex Team, from the on-boarding via Jordan & Dean to how quickly our issues are sorted, we can’t fault anything, and we are really glad that we made the switch. Thanks Eitex!
Thanks to the Jordan & Dean for arranging a prompt audit of my company, friendly and helpful are the top words that come to mind. Quote for a migration and SharePoint / Teams build was very reasonable and completed promptly by the projects team, they talked us through each step and helped my team prepare for the changes in our way of working. Since completion a few weeks ago the guys on the Helpdesk have always got back to me and my team quickly with any issue. 100% recommend Eitex for any of your companies needs, we can’t fault them.
Recently started using Eitex, can't fault the service we have received so far, very responsive, fast to take action and approachable, affordable - we are a small local charity. I would highly recommend this company.
Great people to work with. Really quick at responding to (and solving) IT support tickets. I've attended one of their training webinars on Microsoft Teams too and found it really informative and well put together.
I was very happy to attend virtually your seminar introducing us to Microsoft Teams. This was pitched by Dean and Jordan at just the right level, giving us a taste of the capabilities available within the application. I came away with a far better understanding and knowledge; enough to help decide which features are appropriate to our business. It was particularly helpful to hear this explained in plain language, with just enough detail to enthuse us to get cracking. Thank you Eitex Team :)
Great webinar session run by the team at Eitex! A nice balance between overview and detail that then gives you what you need to see how the systems being discussed could work with your business. You aren't then flooded with information about parts that are not so relevant to you, so you can get a better overall understanding which is an ideal starting point allowing you to then dive deeper into the more useful topics.
We’ve had a great experience at our charity, I have to say. Jordan has been brilliant, right from the start, keeping in touch, making sure everything is okay etc. A smooth and seamless transition!
Jordan really has gone the extra mile and maybe even a little bit more than that!
Lovely people to deal with, customer service is second to none, nothing is too much trouble. Excellent system for requesting help I have waited no longer than 30 minutes for help. Would highly recommend.
I attended a Microsoft Teams demo recently and was impressed by the way the session was delivered. I particularly like being able to see the presenter's face which builds rapport and engagement. Also hearing about how Eitex use Teams was helpful. I have attended other Teams training in which it seemed that every way to do every thing was covered which is a bit mind blowing if the topic is new to you. Thanks guys!
Attended a Cyber Security presentation at Eitex by West Yorkshire Police,
Informative and "eye opening". There is always more you can do to protect your company and yourself. It just confirmed that you have to be constantly alert to threats.
I recently attended a Microsoft Teams workshop as its a tool I am keen to embrace in my new role and when an opportunity arose to see it in use by the professionals I got in contact and I am so glad I did.
It was conducted in a relaxed environment where you feel comfortable to ask questions/pitch scenarios of use and also have the ability to see how it used elsewhere
I worked at Eitex nearly 10 years ago Eitex has always been keen to be at the forefront and embrace changes within the IT space and its nice to see that's still the case with Dean and his team.
Great session on Teams for Office365 users. Learnt lots of new ways that can discount the other platforms I am using (and paying for). Will be investigating and integrating into my business. Many thanks Dean.
As a customer of eitex, I have been extremely impressed by their customer excellence, the knowledge of their staff and also the speed at which they have been able to resolve many of my issues. I would recommend eitex to any business in the Yorkshire region.
Really knowledgeable around Teams and the whole of Office 365. I found the training and support beneficial even though I already had a knowledge around Teams. Dean answered any questions that I had in detail.
JS Recruitment is known for service excellence and professionalism. When selecting suppliers we choose only those who share our values and work to the same high standards. This is certainly true of Eitex.
Eitex have supported JS Recruitment during a recent office move, provided expert advice on how best to protect and future proof our business and they continue to provide proactive IT support.
We know Dean and the team at Eitex to be consultative, responsive and above all they deliver exceptional customer service. With this in mind, we would have no hesitation in recommending them to others.
Attended a 365 taster session with Dean and his team, WOW, i thought it would be teccy and boring, no way, i got that totally wrong, it was great to explore how business can really benefit from this clever software and crazy to think i didn't know what could be achieved. Great training,Great Team...don't miss out book on today!!
Great seminar on Office 365 by Dean at Eitex today. It was really insightful, jargon free and has made me realise the software's full potential and how we can improve our infrastructure to make us more efficient. Lots to think about and implement!
We have worked with Eitex over the past couple of years, managing and supporting both our hardware infrastructure and Microsoft 365 environment. In that time we have always had great service and they have always gone that extra mile to get everything just right. I would have no hesitation in recommending them.
Just attended an Office365 Taster session and even as an experienced user I found that there are alot of other programmes which we do not currently use but would be of benefit to us. Session was easy to follow and very informative.
Your team and yourself have once again excelled, the service you provide I feel is second to none and it is incidents like what we have just incurred which really test a service like you provide and to say you have gone above and beyond is an understatement. From the first report I made, your response time and the haste in which you acted has undoubtedly saved us untold hassle let alone cost.

“Here at YRL we know loads about rubber but much less about IT! That’s where Eitex comes in. They too are good at what they do and they make sure we keep going and service our customers by maintaining our computer based systems. We have used Eitex since its inception and are proud to say we were their very first client. Concentrate on what you’re good at and leave the IT stuff to Eitex!”
We have worked with Eitex over the past few years, managing and supporting our Microsoft 365 environment and have always received prompt and accurate attention. Never encountered any issues and would have no hesitation in recommending them.
