Agoria selects Workplace-as-a-Service from Proximus SpearIT
Agoria has choosen Proximus SpearIT as its digital workplace and cloud partner. The managed services contract will run for 3 years, starting in January 2021, with a prior transition period. Proximus SpearIT will mainly deploy Microsoft technology at Agoria, supplemented with additional services such as security, user analytics and adoption. To this end, it is working closely with its parent company Proximus.
Christian Dekeyser, Director Operations at Agoria
We were pleasantly surprised by Proximus SpearIT's proposal. By offering services from a smaller organisation and using expertise from the entire Proximus group, they have been able to customise to medium-sized organisations such as Agoria. A second strong point is the focus on the user experience. In line with our own 'Be the change' attitude, we can now take the digital skills of our employees to an even higher level.
User experience first
The innovative thing about the services at Agoria is, on the one hand, the integration of various innovative building blocks from the Microsoft cloud and, on the other hand, the Workplace-as-a-Service with a focus on end users. They will be able to offer an optimal service to their members anytime, from anywhere and safely. The past few months have shown with COVID-19 that organisations need to be able to respond quickly and flexibly to changing circumstances.
In the Agoria Workplace-as-a-Service they receive a sophisticated adoption plan so that they can quickly get away with the new possibilities of their digital workplace. In addition, users get help from a proactive AI that can suggest solutions based on a knowledge base, network analysis and reports from other users.
