Hénallux’s OASE story started with a migration to Office 365. To make sure that transition went smoothly, everyone in their organization needed the right skills to use the Office tools correctly. The company soon realized they needed extra support, and called in the help of OASE.
Hénallux trainer Geneviève Marchal and IT Manager Willem Kuypers are eager to tell you all about their OASE story. They even have some extra tips to share as well.
Hénallux got to know OASE through their Microsoft contact for higher education. At the time, they wanted to migrate to Office 365.

From new tools like Teams, to the most recent features that allow them to use well-known applications to the fullest… They realized that they needed some support. OASE was the perfect fit to smoothly guide them through the migration.

“We launched OASE in a kind of whirlwind, as everything had to be implemented very fast for the start of the migration,” says Geneviève. “Looking back, and seeing how we handle similar projects now, we could have benefited from a better roll-out and communication plan.
