Add Extra Features to Your Current IT System with Outlook® Add-Ons

Add Extra Features to Your Current IT System with Outlook<sup><sup>®</sup></sup> Add-Ons

Microsoft Outlook® is a popular email and calendaring solution, but it has its limitations. A Microsoft Outlook® add-on adds new features to Outlook® or modifies its existing functionality, streamlining tasks and saving users time. It’s advantageous to use add-ons that lend extra functionality to a familiar environment like Outlook® rather than buy new software to replace Outlook®. Little training is required since users are already familiar with Outlook®. It is also easier for an IT department to provide users with support since they already have experience with Outlook®. Furthermore, add-ons are more likely to achieve effective user adoption since users are already comfortable with Outlook® and don’t have to get accustomed to a new program.

Free Up Time for Revenue-Generating Tasks with an Outlook® Room Booking System

Free Up Time for Revenue-Generating Tasks with an Outlook<sup>®</sup> Room Booking System

It’s no secret that excessive business meetings can waste time and hurt productivity, but less attention is paid to how much time organizations waste on the process of booking those meetings. According to a survey of 1,500 managers and administrative staff members at companies in Europe and the US, businesses waste approximately 4.8 hours per week scheduling meetings. This amounts to six weeks spent scheduling meetings each year. That wasted time could be used to provide better customer service or perform other revenue-generating tasks.
