Tech Talk

Title: How do you leverage your existing IT investments to bring people and technology together so that you can focus on your most valuable work?


80% of companies who make between 1M - 50M revenue per year use Microsoft 365. Many companies pay Microsoft tens to hundreds of thousands per year and only utilize 20-30% of it. Microsoft SharePoint and their Power Platform are rapidly growing and it's never been a better time to build on top of them! Not only can you store your files, but you can also deliver custom web pages, share tasks, and even create a 3D showcase for showing off your design assets prior to printing! Emerging tools, like the AI Builder, also allow for automated quality control through the use of object detection and image classification. Machine learning can help identify defects in a manufacturing line, alert you when materials are low, and even object detection to help a technician identify parts and speed up the lookup for manuals or schematics. All industries benefit from optimizing internal operational processes for digitizing paper forms, automating approvals and push notifications. Microsoft Tools can build many solutions: • Site Inspection / Technician Visit • HR On/Offboarding • Expense reporting and budget tracking • Time off requests and scheduling • Project Management & Service Management • Product Showcase • Inventory and Ordering Talk Outline: • Intro • Showcasing
