Testimonials

What our clients are saying about the Microsoft Imagine Workshops.

“The spacing of the workshops were customized to fit our busy summertime schedule. We were provided enough time between the sessions to put in place solutions and have the facilitator confirm we were going in the right direction. Thanks to the workshops, we were able to jump start our management of endpoint devices in the cloud.”

Eric Schueler, IT Manager, Endpoint Operations Information Technology & Systems, Conestoga

“Acting as a trusted advisor, Softlanding continues to help Langara College get the most out of its Microsoft security/compliance investment. The relationship is proving valuable not only in knowledge transfer and raising internal capabilities, but in cost savings the College would otherwise spend on duplicative third-party tools. Not only does this reduce costs and toolset complexity, it gets us closer to that elusive “single pane of glass” desired state.”

Charles Boname, Associate Director, Cyber Security Information Technology, Langara College
