Office 365 training and support partnership provides the latest in productivity solutions

TULSA, Okla. – A joint effort between Cherokee Nation Businesses and Planet Technologies is increasing productivity throughout organizations by enhancing the overall learning experience of Microsoft users.

Planet Technologies recently partnered with Cherokee Services Group to launch Evolve 365. The Office 365 platform uses the latest advances in technology to provide government and commercial Microsoft users with individual training and support services.

“The Evolve 365 Contact Center is a win-win situation for CNB, Planet Technologies and Microsoft users,” said Steven Bilby president of Cherokee Nation’s diversified businesses. “This partnership exemplifies the type of efforts we strive to participate in. It allows us to further diversify our portfolio and therefore fund more services for Cherokee citizens, while providing our partners with the capability to keep this service within the United States.”

The collaboration employs staff in both Tulsa and Fort Collins, Colorado.

Evolve 365 helps organizations apply the latest Microsoft offerings and manage their own digital transformations by actively assisting them in using both familiar and new tools to operate their businesses. The collaboration employs expert training, specialized insight and on-demand service to improve communication, collaboration and productivity by bettering users’ knowledge and navigation of the evolving technology in platforms such as SharePoint and Skype for Business.

Cherokee Services Group, part of the Cherokee Nation Businesses family of companies, provides the live on-call support portion of the integrated service by handling applications support, mitigation support and governance.

“We have an 18-yearlong history with Microsoft Corporation. The Office 365 platform is phenomenal and it’s evolving. It’s changing, and there are customers who need help with those changes,” said President and CEO of Planet Technologies Scott Tucker. “We went into this solution with CNB because we wanted to make an incredible difference for our customers. The training and support services offered by Evolve 365 continue to answer an ongoing need and have really made that difference for our customers.”
