Huddle and CompanyNet will work to help clients get the most out of their technology investments – building better, and more integrated experiences between the two platforms.
Today, Huddle and CompanyNet are excited to announce a new partnership, designed to help clients of both businesses extend their use of Microsoft Office 365 and Huddle services.
Huddle is a leading cloud-based document collaboration solution that allows teams to build unique workspaces where they can collaborate on documents, manage approval workflows, and oversee team activity and tasks. They already offer deep integrations with Microsoft Office (including Office Online), allowing users to open and co-edit documents directly from Huddle into their Microsoft apps, before natively saving them back and syncing the latest updates to other Huddle users.
Meanwhile, at CompanyNet we’re experts in helping businesses get more out of Office 365. Using principles drawn from change management practice, we introduce employees to new ways of working, leading to measurable improvements in staff productivity and satisfaction. Our services help customers including Tesco Bank, learning disability charity Mencap and the UK Government unlock far greater value from the Office 365 platform, creating higher levels of user adoption, and ultimately driving wider digital transformation.
Together, we will work to help clients get the most out of their technology investments – building better, and more integrated experiences between the Huddle and Office 365 platforms.
Tangible benefits for customers
James Henderson, an independent consultant and former Microsoft Partner Manager who brought the two companies together, believes there is huge scope for customers of both organisations to gain tangible benefits from the new partnership.
“Many organisations invest in the technology side of Office 365, but they fail to create the right circumstances for it flourish,” he says. “Implementations fall flat when people simply carry on working as before. Working with the teams at Huddle and CompanyNet, I realised that their propositions would complement each other and help put organisations on a path to lasting digital transformation.”
“CompanyNet has never partnered this closely with a business from outside of the Microsoft ecosystem, but when the opportunity arose to join forces with Huddle, we immediately saw it would be an ideal fit,” says Andy Hamilton, Chief Executive at CompanyNet.
Driving better collaboration
“Their focus on creating intuitive work patterns and easy internal and external collaboration really chimed with the work we do at CompanyNet,” adds Andy. “By providing services that augment and extend the typical Office 365 experience, CompanyNet will help Huddle customers gain actionable insights into their use of the Office 365 ecosystem and discover tools and methods to exploit it more thoroughly. We’ll also be able to help our own clients deploy Huddle in a way that adds a further dimension to their Office 365 plans.”
“Huddle is passionate about delivering secure and easy-to-use solutions that drive better collaboration. The majority of our clients already use Huddle alongside Microsoft Office 365, so this partnership will provide them with a deeper portfolio of services to help them get the most out of both technologies,” added Jon Topping, Vice President at Huddle.
