Office 365

Office 365 is a web and mobile productivity platform which offers a range of cutting edge collaborative and communications technologies.

Skype

Skype for Business is the market leader for instant messaging, video and conference calling, optimised for the needs of today’s organisation.

Yammer

Yammer is a leading enterprise social network which simplifies communications, information sharing and collaborative working amongst it’s users.

SharePoint

SharePoint has expanded from its roots as a simple file share to become the world’s leading business and enterprise digital collaboration tool.

OneDrive

OneDrive for Business is a cloud based sync and share tool which lets businesses easily organise and share documents wherever they are.

Microsoft Azure

Microsoft Azure is one of the most powerful cloud hosting experiences, letting businesses run almost unlimted workloads across its international servers.

FLEX supports deployments across Cloud, On-Premises and Hybrid environments.

OneDrive

 

FLEX’s Self Service engine intelligently consumes either SharePoint or OneDrive storage based on what the user wants to do.  This allows organisations to drive OneDrive consumption whilst avoiding clogging up central storage.

 

Typically SharePoint (Server or Online) provides centralised storage which is automatically consumed by intranets and team sites etc.  OneDrive however provides each user with 1TB of distributed storage which FLEX can take advantage of and enable full utilisation of this storage.

Zero training experience

 

The first rule of user experience is to not confuse your users. Unfortunately, so many traditional systems built on Microsoft technology break this rule with complex functionality built upon on poorly implemented processes.

 

Core to FLEX is its Zero Training User Experience. Your colleagues will love our familiar App Store: they simply search for specific tools, install them and get on with their work. This saves hours figuring out how to develop a workflow, a form or a widget and lets them focus their energies on high value productivity instead.

 

The self-service store gives users the power to enhance their experience while letting you maintain control over who can install what, on both desktop and mobile. And a positive User Experience encourages user adoption.

Extensibility Framework

 

FLEX has been designed from the ground up to be shaped to how you want to work.

 

Frameworks for App creation and Intranet content allow developers to create new ways of working for your users within FLEX. Training is provided as well as an offer to work collaboratively during your project will accelerate your team’s knowledge with FLEX and Office 365.

This automates the deployment process by providing a pre-built and extensible digital workspace. You get a perfectly functioning environment from day one, which can later be customised to your exact requirements if required.
