Office 365 User Adoption

Exploiting potential

When Molenbergnatie came into contact with, Microsoft Office 365 tools were already being used, but the enormous potential of the 192 licenses was far from being fully exploited. A better knowledge of the available tools could significantly improve internal cooperation, which is why a User Adoption process was started with
During a kick-off workshop, a number of specific scenarios were immediately drawn up in which the available tools could be used meaningfully. Teams were chosen for the sharing of project documents, for example for a dockworker: he/she can now quickly and easily share photos of containers, whereas in the past different apps and communication channels were used (e-mail, Dropbox, WhatsApp, … etc.).

Quick wins

Bernard De Vriese, IT Manager at Molenbergnatie, testifies: "The development of a number of simple scenarios made it immediately clear that a number of quick wins could be achieved. All we had to do was to familiarise our people with the Microsoft Office 365 tools that were already available. provided a number of training courses on the use of OneDrive, OneNote and Teams, and clever use of these tools makes internal collaboration considerably easier, for example, by making it easier for everyone now to use OneNote for the purpose of sharing notes, for example. Our internal meetingss are the most important ones;

Training plan & monitoring

The User Adoption process started and ended with training, and once the opportunities were clear, a training plan was drawn up for the available Office 365 tools. In order to continue to support the employees at the end of the process, Molenbergnatie now uses the e-learning platform OASE, which contains both extensive training and concrete instructions for carrying out specific tasks in the Microsoft Office 365 tools.

Koen Van Loon, Business Manager Modern Workplace & Applications at "At Molenbergnatie, we quickly identified a number of scenarios in which a more conscious use of the available Office 365 tools could significantly improve internal collaboration, further develop these processes and convince a large number of users, develop a training plan to get everyone on board, organise ten sessions on the use of OneDrive in combination with OneNote, Teams and a number of specific processes, and use the Microsoft Power B to follow up on the User Adoption.

Security Awareness

Raising awareness in a playful way

Molenbergnatie also started a Security Awareness programme with, the trigger for which was an undesired phishing experience. informed the employees about the dangers of phishing and gave them useful tips on how to work considerably more safely in a simple and inexpensive way. As a test, the employees received a phishing e-mail from, pointing out to those who were still tempted by unsafe actions, and guiding them further. In a similarly playful way, a few anonymous USB sticks were distributed on the desks, and the employees who use them carelessly were distributed.

Different cultures require different approaches

Bernard De Vriese: "Sensitization is bearing fruit. If a suspicious mail arrives, it is immediately reported to our IT support team, although we certainly see a cultural difference between the employees in Antwerp, Spain and America, as is the case with the User Adoption of the Office 365 tools. In America, we have a very young team that is very open to new technologies, while in Spain, we have an older team that is more conservative, which is why has also sent someone on the spot. The physical presence made the employees more aware.

The applicant claims that the Court should

Bernard De Vriese: "We are very satisfied with the training and service provided by Both the User Adoption trajectory and the Security Awareness guidance were well taken care of, and it is important that not only provides a standard service, but also takes into account the needs of the users from the outset, by responding more quickly to these needs, by working together more efficiently internally and by being more aware of possible security issues. We would like to continue to work with in order to optimize our printer fleet with Managed Print Services.
