During 2016, many companies upgraded from Office 2007, Office 2010 or Office 2013 to Office 2016. The majority of these organisations will expect their staff to unravel the mysteries of the new versions for themselves. Whichever version you are upgrading from, you are bound to find changes in the new version.
It takes time for people to find their way around the system and to find out what exciting new features there are which were not available in previous versions.
However, investment in Microsoft Office 2016 upgrade training and possibly floorwalking, could quickly take away the apprehension of staff and make them more productive very rapidly. Most people will use Microsoft Word and Microsoft Outlook; a two-hour workshop would bring people up-to-date with the Microsoft Office 2016 new features, such as the Cloud capabilities, Shared Meetings, easier file sharing, etc; it could also cover the major new changes in Word and Outlook.
Visit our blog If Only I’d Known That,; we have called it that because we hear it so many times in training sessions. In fact, if only we had an extra $100 for every time someone says “If only I’d known that.” ….
Microsoft Office 2016 upgrading training workshops combined with floorwalking enable personnel to ask questions specific to them and iron out any problems they may be facing with finding how to do things in Office 2016 that they previously did with older versions.
Depending on the size of the organisation, some companies may convert everyone to Office 2016 at once; others may move staff over at a more gradual pace. Office 2016 upgrade workshops and floorwalking could be done over a few days in one week, or a day or two per week spread over several change. Staff then become productive in the new software rapidly, and embrace the change rather than resenting it.
Our charge per day for Microsoft Office 2016 upgrade training workshops and floorwalking is $1295 + GST.
Any workshops can be tailored to the needs of your organisation. These shown below are just for guidance.
