Truphone Case Study

Understand how AddIn365 helped Truphone to deliver a vibrant Office 365 digital workplace to employees, in nine business days

The challenge

Truphone is the only mobile operator in the world that expands the reach of businesses beyond the borders of their home country. It has employees located in 10 countries.

Truphone had an operational objective of utilising Office 365 services as quickly as possible, to begin getting value from their investment in the Office 365 platform. Truphone had invested in the Office 365 platform to meet its wide-ranging needs and support the organisation’s ambitious plans for 2016 and beyond.

Truphone also had number of business objectives that needed to be met. Truphone needed to create an Office 365 digital workplace that would help to engage and inform employees about its strategy and plans for 2016, offer personalised communications and make it easier for teams to collaborate and share information across geographic borders and time zones. With Truphone embarking on a period of exciting growth, the business was looking for a scalable, enterprise ready solution to support that growth. Generating and proving adoption of the Office 365 digital workplace in meeting these goals was a key challenge for the Truphone team.

Truphone employees in general relied heavily on email and so the IT and Communications teams were conscious that a change in hearts and minds would be critical to the adoption of the Office 365 digital workplace and meeting their business objectives.

The solution

Truphone needed to select an Office 365 partner and product capable of helping the team to meet their business objectives of:


Delivering timely and relevant multi-channel communications to different audiences including the leadership, country teams, sales force, product design and business services


Helping the business to win more business by facilitating better internal collaboration


Embedding new starters into the Truphone culture


Helping the business to deliver a more competitive customer service with employee access to the right information at the right time


Reducing the number of information sharing systems in use


Connecting to third party products such as Salesforce, with ease


Delivering a great user experience across desktop, mobile and tablet devices

AddIn365 and the AddIn Work Hub product for Office 365 fitted the bill.

Additionally, AddIn Work Hub was made available with the AddIn Analytics package which was seen as a bonus; the data made available would enable the Truphone team to manage engagement with Office 365 – and therefore Truphone’s business objectives – in the short, medium and long term.


Days to deliver


Uptake in 90 days

Vibrant digital workplace

The outcome

AddIn365 worked with Truphone to get the organisation live with only nine days of support from the AddIn365 team.

This was possible because AddIn Work Hub has been engineered to minimise set-up time so that customers can enjoy a speedy return on their investment in Office 365, as compared to more traditional custom or intranet product routes to enhancing the Office 365 platform.

AddIn365 services focused on design, training, launch and engagement activities to ensure the new service would reflect the Truphone brand and garner a high level of engagement from day one.

Within the first week of Live Truphone have achieved nearly 50% uptake of AddIn Work Hub and Office 365.  Within 90 days of Live, adoption of the new Office 365 digital workplace has grown to 70%. This is a fantastic result for an organisation that had been entrenched in email use.

Using the AddIn Analytics package as a guide for where and how AddIn Work Hub is being used, Truphone will continue to build on their engagement strategy to increase uptake further and sustain it over the lifecycle of their investment in Office 365 and AddIn Work Hub.

AddIn365 have helped us to meet our business objectives in a timeframe of only nine business days. Thanks to AddIn365, our digital workplace is already receiving great feedback and enjoying a high level of adoption. With a new key communications tool allowing us to reach every one of our global employees on whatever device they want, at a time that suits them, we will be in a great position to engage our teams as we build the business. Plus, the AddIn Analytics package and our evolving business needs will guide us on how we enhance the platform. Our leadership team are particularly thrilled that AddIn Work Hub has helped us to get such a speedy return on our investment in Office 365.
