Our Journey

Dream. Deploy.

Hable founder Mark Reynolds left Microsoft to build a business that would change the way people felt about technology. He wanted to put people at the centre of any IT project and ensure that organisations get the most from their move to the cloud. Hable has always been a Microsoft partner and strong advocates of the Office 365 platform. When implemented well, cloud technology is a powerful asset which can improve your whole organisation and deliver tangible benefits for everybody. A successful technology project requires you to get people on board by inspiring them to embrace and giving them the confidence to learn new things.

Hable is a Microsoft Partner specialising in Office 365 adoption and change management. We are also a Microsoft Global Training Partner.

What can Hable do for you?

We believe that there are 3 steps to a successful technology project, whether you are rolling out new devices or new cloud services…

 Manage Successful change

Hable consultants are Prosci ADKAR accredited and know what it takes to deliver organisational change, underpinned by the use of technology. We know that the rollout of any new system, new device or new way of working is about people change, not just technology.

Deliver Impactful Learning

We don’t like the word “training” – we prefer the word “learning”. Our workshops can be delivered either face-to-face or via Microsoft Teams; either way it’s the interaction with an expert member of #TeamHable that sets us apart from other IT training providers.

Support Office 365 Adoption

The first step is to get Office 365 up and running, which usually starts with an email migration. Once that part is done, how can you drive real business value using Office 365? Hable specialise in the adoption of SharePoint, Teams & the Power Platform.

Manage successful change

What does Hable do to Manage Successful Change?

  • Change Management. Introducing new technology or new ways of working isn’t easy. It requires professional planning and people who have been through it before. Our Prosci certified ADKAR practitioners will work with you to find ways to drive a change in culture or approach through your organisation, ensuring that your business is more successful and ready for the future.
  •  Strategy Consultancy. We’ll interview stakeholder groups to learn about your organisation, run “Art of the Possible” sessions to give people ideas, then bring it all together in a written report with our findings and recommendations for your technology & people strategies. We can even write the whole strategy for you and help you implement it if you don’t have time to do that yourselves.
  • Internal Comms. There’s no point delivering a great technology project, if your users don’t understand the benefits. We’ll act as your internal marketing department, creating compelling communications and collateral to help you get the message across and get people on board.

 

Deliver Impactful Learning

What does Hable do to Deliver Impactful Learning?

  • Face-to-face Workshops. We have a catalogue of technology workshops covering every aspect of Office 365, Windows 10 & new device rollouts. We also deliver lots of bespoke “soft skills” workshops, that combine workplace & technology skills. Some of the best technology learning we have seen has happened when the content was NOT focussed solely on IT.
  • Floor walking. Floor walking days are a great way to reinforce face-to-face workshops. One of the friendly, professional members of #TeamHable will visit people at their desks and offer short 1:1 or small group coaching. They will help your project team to spot issues that may have otherwise gone unnoticed and make people feel supported & confident.
  • Online Workshops. More and more organisations are trying to move staff learning online. This can save money & reduce travel time, but if you are not careful it can feel very impersonal & deliver a poor experience. Different to a 1: many “webinar” – a Hable Online Workshop is delivered to small group with 1 expert consultant leading it. We like using Microsoft Teams to deliver them, but are happy using other meeting platforms if you prefer.

Support Office 365 Adoption

What does Hable do to Support Office 365 Adoption?

  • SharePoint Sites & Microsoft Teams. All Office365 tenants come with SharePoint Online & Microsoft Teams, but which is right for you & how do you tailor those tools for your business or industry? You need some expert help. Hable build custom SharePoint sites & help you provision Teams correctly, before migrating data from your on-premise Shared drives into the right places.
  • The Power Platform. Microsoft Power BI, PowerApps, and Flow are simple, powerful tools that our customers are using to improve how they work. Hable will help you identify areas for business improvement and show you how to build your own Office365 apps to address these needs.
  • Office 365 Learning Workshops. Our hands-on Office 365 workshops will get people feeling comfortable using “the cloud” and help first time users get logged on & find their way around. We run sessions on PC, Mac, iOS & Android; regularly combining Office 365 apps on different device types for different scenarios.
