CHICAGO, October 7, 2016 –

Rightpoint, a leading national digital agency, and Akumina, developer of the InterChange digital workplace platform, have teamed up to deliver a comprehensive solution to maximize the Microsoft Office 365 experience for the enterprise. The strategic partnership builds upon the longstanding alliance between Akumina and Agency Oasis, which was acquired by Rightpoint in the spring of 2016.

Through this partnership, Rightpoint’s team of engagement and social enterprise services experts will be armed with the InterChange platform to deliver comprehensive, adoptable and scalable SharePoint experiences for their mutual customer base.

“By adding the InterChange platform to Rightpoint’s acclaimed delivery model, we are able to provide our joint customers with a technologically advanced solution to build faster, deploy quicker and connect their Office 365 solutions to every part of their digital business strategy,” said David Maffei, Chief Revenue Officer of Akumina. “Together we can help our customers to maximize their existing investment in Microsoft technologies, ultimately driving more adoption, use, consumption, and deployment of O365.”

As part of their mutual objective to enhance the employee experience, Akumina and Rightpoint are also teaming up with Microsoft to co-sponsor the "Intranet of Things" Event on October 26th in Chicago. Applying the principles of the IoT to the enterprise, the session will explore ways to craft truly transformative intranets that engage employees, reduce repetitive friction, maximize productivity—and ultimately profits— through interconnected, contextually relevant, and hyper-personalized experiences.

“We are excited to have Akumina as a foundational SharePoint partner. Whether our customers are using the SharePoint platform to meet their internal communications, social engagement, internal and external collaboration, document management, or knowledge management use-cases (just to name a few). Akumina’s platform will enhance and expedite the way our customers create a cohesive solution on the combined SharePoint and Akumina platform,” said Jeremy Williams, Collaboration Practice Leader of Rightpoint. “Our ‘Intranet of Things’ event will illustrate the importance and red hot opportunity that enterprise organizations have to harness the power of connectivity to transform their businesses and create the ultimate Digital Workspace for employees.”
