How to ensure an optimal employee experience with Microsoft 365

Complement MS 365

You might be wondering why you need another platform or app when you already have MS 365 or SharePoint. The truth is, many organisations find that complementing their existing Microsoft suite with Plek provides a host of benefits, from making life easier for users to providing deep insights into conversations and providing easy access across borders.
