For the fourth time in a row Rapid Circle has been awarded during the Microsoft ‘Global Partner of the Year’ awards. This time in the category ‘Content and Collaboration’.
The Microsoft Awards are introduced to acknowledge Microsoft partners who make the difference with customers, using Microsoft technology. Rapid Circle has been chosen from over 2800 nominations from 115 different countries. Rapid Circle owes its acknowledgement on the unique approach for the adoption of Office 365 and Digital Workplace based on the tool Pulse, that makes desired behavior and the effectiveness of adoption and training measurable. As a ‘Finalist’, Rapid Circle is once again one of the 4 partners worldwide for Content & Collaboration.
The essence of our adoption approach is that we don’t focus on the use of a tool itself, but rather on indicating that specific behavior, supported by the Microsoft platform, supports objectives of the organization. In essence, we measure desired behavior. For example, when we train people to use OneNote during meetings, to make notes, we measure how many people during a meeting (this can be found in Outlook) use OneNote. There are many measuring points, from behavior during meetings, time spent reading emails to the level of cross-department collaboration. To know more about our Organizational Pulse tool, click here.
Harold Punter, CEO of Rapid Circle: “This acknowledgement means a lot to us, because it emphasizes the direction we’re going in is the right one. We are a Microsoft partner who wants to support our customers in getting the most out of the Microsoft cloud platform. Much of it usually remains unused which is a shame. We provide a broader use of the products, but always with a purpose, in terms of productivity and collaboration of the employer.”
