Softline has earned Microsoft advanced specialization in change management — Adoption and Change Management Advanced Specialization (ACM). Softline has become one of the first Microsoft partners to confirm this status. This is evidence of Softline's extensive experience in promoting and implementing Microsoft 365 services to optimize the business processes of our customers, as well as to facilitate the digital transformation of customers at the corporate level.
The change management services are discussed individually with each customer include identifying business needs through workshops, creating plans for achieving business goals to transitioning end users to new teamwork models using Microsoft products. Companies that follow the change management program are six times more likely to meet business targets. According to Microsoft estimates, the market for services in this area is $9.5 billion. “Softline's acquisition of Microsoft's advanced specialization in change management has become another important step on the way to developing stronger partnership with one of the world's largest vendor. Softline is dynamically delivering digital transformation projects to customers using Microsoft solutions to build effective teamwork and communication. “This helps us to work faster, better and more efficiently”, — comments Sergey Chernovolenko, global CEO of Softline.
One of the customers whom Softline helped transform was the Yukon company. During the project, Softline specialists replaced the used communication systems with Microsoft Teams and migrated to the new Exchange mail service, taking into account the corporate security requirements of Yukon and the internal structure of Active Directory. In addition, we helped the team quickly adapt to new services: by creating workflows and implementing user training for adoption of new scenarios.
“Our internal communication has reached a new level, increasing employees productivity. New tools help us quickly solve problems and always stay connected. The staff has constant access to the mailboxes, calendars, messenger from any device no matter what country they are in. It is really convenient for working together: we can discuss our projects at any time, schedule meetings and not interrupt the workflow,” said Dmitry Vilenchik, IT director of Yukon.
