It’s here. Are you ready to upgrade?
The long anticipated version of Office, built from the ground up for the cloud and to be mobile, was rolled out September 22.  We’ve been previewing it and reviewing what our clients need to do to make the transition a smooth one.  In this webinar we want to share what we’ve learned with our wider community.
What’s new?  What’s different?  What has the potential to be a big headache?
Join Community IT CTO Matthew Eshleman and Mark Kraemer as they take you through the steps you’ll want to take in order to make the best use of Office 2016.
