Award-winning digital Consultagency™, ClearPeople, has today launched Think-5 (www.think-5.com), a brand-new product division which aims specifically to bring new products and micro-apps to the market that help organisations maximise their investment in Microsoft Office 365.
Delivering a great user experience consistently across the wealth of Office 365 collaboration tools is a real challenge for many organisations. Many are on a necessary digital transformation and adoption journey, but few end users will be able to adopt at the speed with which all of this technical goodness is coming to the market. This limits expected investment returns and frustrates users.
Using cutting-edge AI and automation technologies including cognitive services, graph and bots, the new division will focus on providing tools that allow users to work in the faster, smarter and more dynamic way that today’s businesses demand.
A recent study by McKinsey showed that productivity improves by 20-25% in organisations with connected employees. With that in mind, ClearPeople’s new division finds ways to boost employee productivity and increase output from an organisation’s workforce by helping them to do things faster.
Stephen Bedford, ClearPeople’s Product Division Director says: “With Think-5, we are able to help transform the way people work by constantly innovating and finding ways of saving time. We develop tools that aim to save a user five minutes of worktime every single day. All these extra five minutes can have a huge impact on an organisation’s bottom line.”
Think-5 initially launches with three products including Group Explorer (GX) which tackles one particular challenge - the proliferation of Office 365 Groups - head-on. GX allows users to easily work and collaborate across SharePoint, Office 365 Groups, Dynamics CRM, Yammer, Microsoft Teams, and more. It provides a great user experience through one aggregated view across the full range of Microsoft 365 collaboration areas, greatly simplifying and improving employee engagement and boosting productivity through enhanced teamwork. Having been developed in collaboration with and with feedback from “real world clients” including Korn Ferry and CMS Legal, it is already proving its worth.
Bryan Ackermann, CIO of global management consultancy, Korn Ferry, says: “Group Explorer is helping us to bring together new and existing Korn Ferry staff and teams under one digital roof. We’ve deployed the tool within our new intranet which provides one platform to effectively communicate, collaborate and manage knowledge across the entire organisation. It’s leading to higher adoption levels of our Microsoft applications and making governance of internal collaboration much easier.”
