Think Up Consulting Customer Success Story

About Think Up Consulting Collaboration with Microsoft 365

Think Up is a fast-growing consulting firm based in Greenville, South Carolina. With specialties such as brand strategy, change management, and strategic consulting, it helps global brands to make deep, lasting connections with their customers. Always looking to work smarter, they chose Microsoft 365 to streamline its internal collaboration processes and dramatically reduce the number of emails it sends. With its global client base increasing, Think Up Consulting needed to improve its remote working capabilities. Its VPN-based system sometimes made it difficult for employees to access files remotely. Without a centralized platform, employees wasted time switching between disparate systems. They’ve replaced several applications with Windows 10 and Office 365, which feature a wide range of productivity tools. Brand strategy and change management firm, Think Up Consulting, has saved nearly $14,000, with more savings on the horizon, with Microsoft Teams. With modern technologies, Think Up has significantly improved efficiency and reduced costs.  Want to have cost savings like Think Up? Contact us to learn more.
