Training & Skills

Training and skills for your team will unlock the power of your technology investment. With ever more capable software operating in an ever-more connected way, you need to empower your team by giving them the skills they need to achieve more.

We deliver training in a variety of technology areas and at different skill levels but in particular, we focus around the Microsoft business productivity tools of Office 365. We provide ‘introduction to’ sessions to give your team a taste of what’s possible and ‘deep dive’ sessions in any aspect of the cloud platform. We offer training workshops where your team can get hands-on alongside our experts, to solve particular challenges. And we deliver full customisation services such as SharePoint team site development and then train your team in its use.

But training should not be a one-off event. With feature sets so broad and capable and a software platform that is continually developing, training needs to be consumed on a continual basis. Your team needs to be always improving their skills so that your business is getting the very best from your IT investment. We offer a range of packages to deliver training updates on a scheduled, regular basis. These can be delivered in person or remotely, one to one or delivered to a group. Delivery is in small ‘bite-sized’ sessions so that the information is not overwhelming and not too disruptive in the working day. We complement this with a range of learning materials including training guides and videos which can be used for later reference.

We encourage the nomination of ‘Office Champions’; these are key members of your team who will embrace the new technology and benefits it brings. Your Office Champions will undertake the training and cascade the skills and knowledge through the rest of your team, continually encouraging adoption and use. This approach is proven to increase success rates and deliver real business gains.

If you are running products like Office 365 but feel you’re not getting the most from the technology, talk to our Training & Skills team about how we can help you to achieve more.

“Technology is the driving force behind our company… Astec as our IT supplier make it their business to understand our business. With IT, it is always very, very important to have partners that respond quickly to your requirements. Astec has been one of those partners that we’ve been very comfortable working with. They are really an extension of our own business and we can call on them any time. They are very responsive to our needs. We wouldn’t have been able to achieve what we’ve achieved with the development of our depots and hubs without the IT and support that Astec have been able to offer us. We would absolutely recommend Astec. We have worked with them for a very, very long time and they’ve never let us down. We certainly made the right decision. Responsive, transparent and trustworthy.”
