GTconsult and Ignite Washington Announce Office 365 Events for SMBs

Free Puget Sound-based events will target small to medium businesses interested in learning more about out-of-the-box productivity solutions using Office 365

GTconsult, a Microsoft Gold partner in Content and Collaboration specializing in SharePoint, Office 365, Exchange, and Yammer deployments and adoption services, today has announced a series of free Office 365 instructional events hosted at the Bellevue and Seattle Microsoft stores in partnership with Ignite Washington, a digital readiness initiative designed to provide turnkey solutions to the competitive challenges faced by local businesses. 

The “Office 365 Introduction for Digital Readiness” series of free events are designed to help small to mid-sized businesses better understand what Office 365 can provide, showcase real-world customer solutions, and to present strategies for on-boarding employees and quickly achieving business value.

GTconsult co-founder and COO Craig Tarr highlighted the benefits of attending: "While Microsoft does a great job of positioning the overall value of Office 365, seeing how other companies are using the technology is very powerful. Attendees are able to ask questions, and get specific answers to how the platform would fit into their unique business requirements.”

Ignite Washington’s architect Chaitra Vedullapalli added “By attending these Office 365 sessions, local brands and businesses learn the importance of modernizing their business processes and technology, allowing them to compete effectively in the marketplace, and learn to become more agile to adapt to new changes in 21st century.”
