A More Productive Way of Working with Office 365

Office 365 provides organizations a powerful set of tools for collaboration, empowering employees to be more productive. However, most employees are confused when it comes to choosing which application to use for which task and their intended purpose, users are forced to switch back and forth between different applications to get their work done.

Workspaces by Akumina on the other hand creates a more productive way to work with Office 365. Leveraging the Microsoft GraphAPI, Workspaces pulls in the underlying technology from Office 365 including Office Groups, Planner, Exchange and SharePoint allowing users to benefit from the best attributes of these systems into a single platform providing one familiar experience, eliminating the need to train users on multiple applications to collaborate, find conversations, coordinate files and ultimately get work done.
