The Value of the Right Microsoft Partner

This is an exclusive video series where industry experts detail their technology journey and offer insight and advice to help guide other organisations to success.

What makes HSO the right Microsoft partner for you?

Whatever your biggest challenge, technology has solutions. If only new technology projects weren’t so risky. Choosing the right technology partner can help you navigate the complexities of technology projects, reduce risk, and achieve your project's goals efficiently and effectively.

We'll never profess to knowing everything, but you can be certain we will try our hardest to deliver the outcomes you seek.

The following videos are all industry experts. And they talk about challenges they faced and why they've made the technology decisions they have. You may find the link between their experience, and ours, insightful. Enjoy.

94 years of innovating breakfasts with Weetabix

Weetabix, one of the UK's best-known and best-loved brands, moves from AX 2012 to Microsoft Cloud to support future growth.

"Microsoft Dynamics AX was coming to the end of life, so we decided to move to Microsoft Dynamics 365. It’s a big business change for us and through the process, we are understanding our own business better and what we want to get out of the implementation. It's not just a technology project.

Like any relationship, you need to get to know each other and through the stages of the project we have built up an effective partnership with HSO."

John Petra, Supply Chain, Procurement and Technical Director, Weetabix

"AI and the pace that AI is actually entering our lives and what that means for our business has been surprising over the past few months.

Working with HSO has been good, and we are in an implementation project and go live imminently. They are a good partner. Big business systems and change projects are never without issues, but HSO has been responsive, and we're enjoying working with them."

Delivering the best citizen services with the right technology approach

"Technology is massively important for us as an organisation. We are constantly trying to deliver more for the residents that we serve with less and technology is our vehicle to make that happen.

We operate largely on the Microsoft platform and Power Platform more specifically, is an important part of our technology strategy.

HSO engagement was a lot of fun. We worked closely with the HSO team, and it was a very fruitful engagement."

Streamlining finance processes with Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance

"We’ve had lots of challenges in the past whereas as a finance team, we were on two very different systems. Tech is definitely the way forward. The more we can automate and make things standardised, the more we can develop synergies and make cost savings and that is what we are looking forward to doing now with Microsoft Dynamics 365.

Honestly, there were very few companies out there that could support us in the way that we needed. So when we started whittling it down, there was only really one contender - and that was HSO."
