Microsoft Teams Fast Start

The hub for Teamwork, Collaboration and Group Chats

Get your organisation remote working quickly, safely and securely

Microsoft Teams is the hub for teamwork that brings together chat, meetings, calls, Office 365 apps, and third-party tools, all in one place. Teams is built on enterprise-grade security and compliance capabilities and Office 365 is a mature platform for business productivity and collaboration. Businesses use Microsoft Teams because it is very user-friendly and can facilitate a work environment between remote users or within a large business.

Use Teams today to combat COVID-19

During the COVID-19 crisis, organisations are challenged to find remote working solutions for their employees quickly. With that in mind, Version 1 is helping customers with a Microsoft Teams Fast Start to enable them to switch on Teams rapidly and to support customers in training their IT teams and employees to ensure effective working during the isolation period.

Four Steps to Best-Practice Remote Working


Version 1 will help you understand your pre-launch considerations in areas such as licencing, infrastructure, GDPR, security, training and change management and guide you on the best options available to you.


Version 1 will switch Teams on for you and immediately provide support via our multi-disciplinary team. We will help provision an Office 365 tenancy, or if you have one already, provide our technical services team with access to configure the tenancy. Our policy accelerator will help define your governance requirements from the outset ensuring security is maintained and governance is in place from the start based on our best-practice Microsoft Teams Governance framework.


Learning is critical to user adoption. We can help upskill your IT team through support for complex queries and/or augment your IT team to help serve and educate your users. We can provide remote training sessions as well as rich user training materials combined with access to a dedicated team to support your users, resolve ad-hoc queries and accelerate adoption.


Version 1 can help you to plan for your medium to long term needs:

Calling and Meetings: Teams is a powerful communication platform and additional integrations can be added to cater for a range of devices and/or physical locations.
Adoption and Change Management: Version 1 can continue to support adoption and change management services to continue to bring value by bringing business use cases to life and ensuring that users adopt new services as part of their natural rhythm of work.
Custom Solutions: Microsoft Teams, Office 365 and PowerAutomate provide a rich platform for building innovative solutions and applications which cater to your evolving business needs.
