Office 365 Connectors for Microsoft Teams: How to Get Started

Traditionally, you’d have to visit separate applications to perform different tasks, like Skype for Business for meetings, GitHub for software development, and so on. But that’s no longer the case.

Is Remote Working Becoming the New Norm?

Remote working has been on the rise in recent years. And by this time last year, it was clear that the battle for America's best talent would be fought on the grounds of work-from-home benefits. But almost overnight, the coronavirus pandemic has transformed remote working from a great option to an absolute necessity. And while companies across the ...

Making the most of your business SaaS spend during the COVID-19 crisis

In challenging financial times, all companies look for ways to curtail spending. But rather than resorting to layoffs of workers—especially during a crisis such as the current global pandemic—some forward-thinking business owners are looking at optimizing their software licensing spend instead.

What CRM is best for your business?

Customers are the single most valuable asset of your organization, and as such, their satisfaction should be the number-one focus.

How to set up zero trust security at your business

Almost a decade ago, cybersecurity industry analyst John Kindervag introduced "zero trust security" to the IT world. The idea was to keep user data safe from cyberattacks no matter what devices or networks were used to access the data. Zero trust security is tailor-made for companies using cloud-based apps at their business. While the zero trust s...

Are you ready for the new file sharing experience in Microsoft Teams?

If your organization uses Microsoft Office 365 (or the Microsoft 365 bundles), then chances are that you've been spending more of your time collaborating in Microsoft Teams. In just the past couple of years, Microsoft Teams has quickly evolved from a business-oriented chat to the premier hub for teamwork. That's mostly due to Teams' deep integrati...

How your business can use Microsoft Teams Rooms to have more inclusive meetings

Today's data-driven economy requires a modern workplace where employees and teams work from anywhere.

Microsoft Office Upload Center is going away. Should you be worried?

For almost ten years, Microsoft Office users have seen the orange "Upload Center" icon in their system tray (the technical term for those notifications in the lower-right corner of Windows). It is an essential tool for business users who keep most of their documents in the cloud. But a recent email sent to all Office 365 early access users in the ...

Can your company thrive as a "cloud only" workplace?

A new client for Amaxra told me about how a recent power outage resulted in his business losing an entire day for all employees across the company. But this company isn't a factory dependent on electricity to manufacture tons of perfectly-machined widgets; it's an office where employees do all of their very expensive and hourly-billed work on comp...

What nobody tells you about deploying Microsoft 365
