Collaborate from anywhere, any time

Today’s modern workplace requires flexibility and the right tech to support productive teams.


Stay connected
A survey conducted by Microsoft found 84% of workers believe that collaboration technology has improved their ability to work together and stay connected.


More productive
The use of tech and tools to support collaboration makes us more productive, says 3 in 4 employees, according to a survey by Mintel.


Quality increase
A report by McKinsey & Company reveals that companies that invested in collaboration and communication tools saw a 15% to 25% improvement in productivity and quality.


Video spike
Video conferencing technology saw a spike of 200% in the first few months of the pandemic in 2020, reported Forbes. Since then, 62% of firms say they use video conferencing to collaborate with partners, customers and suppliers.


Technology and teamwork go hand in hand in today’s workplace


The nature of work has changed. Employees expect to be able to work collaboratively from any location and on any device, and they place a high value on work that enriches and fulfils them. They are happier, more valued, and more likely to stay, if their productivity tools improve the quality and efficiency of their day-to-day experiences at work.

It takes the right technology – and culture – to create the most productive working environments.

Already making a positive impact, the Microsoft Modern Workplace refers to a collection of technologies that helps organisations create a modern, digital workplace that enables employees to work in a more collaborative, secure, and productive way, from anywhere, on any devices. It includes a range of software and services, such as Microsoft Windows 10/11, Microsoft Teams, Microsoft O365, Microsoft EMS or more recently known as the combined Microsoft 365 suite which includes a comprehensive set of security and compliance tools.

Commercial deliver. We are fortunate to work with some amazing partners. Here are some examples of great things we hear every day.

Pittville School and Commercial have been working together closely on an IT and digital strategy to transform and enhance our in-classroom teaching offering to our teachers and students. They arranged a demo of new technology to our leadership team and then arranged time on campus with the supplier BenQ so we could all become familiar with the new products. The Commercial team then installed and integrated the new systems into our existing IT estate, transforming our in-classroom digital offering across the school.

Helping our clients to work smarter

In recent decades the UK has continued to struggle with rates of productivity. As of 2021, the Office of National Statistics (ONS) estimated that the UK’s productivity gap, or output per hour worked, was 15.3% below the average for the rest of the G7 countries.

The right technology, understood and used to its full potential by colleagues, can be a catalyst for collaboration and enhance our rates of productivity in leaps and bounds. And cure many of the frustrations that can de-motivate our teams.

Digitisation is transforming the way we manage documents and processes and advances in artificial intelligence (AI) are set to impact on almost every sector.

The Tesco procurement team have been delighted with the way Commercial share our desire to entrench sustainability into our supply chain – we really are kindred spirits. Our ethical and sustainability policies are of paramount importance to our reputation and the Commercial team reviewed and approved all products in a short timeframe. Commercial are already committed to the ETI base code and are working on achieving EcoVadis accreditation for all suppliers on the Tesco account.
The new Walsall Housing Group office is a fantastic, fresh and modern workplace thanks to the wonderful work of the Commercial interiors team. They created a steering group to work alongside us to understand our demands and held regular meetings during the design process to keep us informed of the progress. Our desire was for a more collaborative space, with meeting booths and one-to-one seating, rather than traditional desks – and they delivered a fantastic final fit-out over the full four-floor building.
Each year, Commercial supplies accessory packs to graduate trainees at a leading accountancy firm, which are then picked, packed, and delivered to their home addresses by the Commercial Foundation. This not only guarantees that every new employee has the necessary equipment to be productive from their first day but also allows their IT team to focus on other responsibilities. Collaborating with the Commercial Foundation generates substantial social value returns on investment for the firm and contributes to improving the lives of the Foundation's volunteers.
Wollens have enjoyed a long-standing and fruitful partnership with Commercial because they are always introducing innovations and improvements to our IT environment. As the threat of cyber-attacks increases it was vital that we strengthened our capabilities for dealing with a ransomware attack with a cloud-based backup solution. Our solution means data cannot be altered or deleted, giving us a crucial way of recovering data to minimise any potential downtime and financial losses
Working with Commercial for our branded materials has proved to be effective and collaborative. The team is efficient and they listen to requests for improvements. Commercial has made branded goods simple.
As E-commerce in retail continues to grow, Commercial’s stock-management and fulfilment expertise has allowed a leading UK retailer to free huge amounts of warehouse space. Commercial took on the stocking of our employee uniform, transferring to a new supplier with the management of the supply being consolidated into their existing supply accounts. Not only did this free vital space in their distribution centre, the consolidated supply of all GNFR delivered significant delivery cost savings.
At JoJo Maman Bébé we are happy to work with the Commercial Foundation and support inspiring work they do to help disadvantaged young adults. Like us, the Foundation are a B Corp certified organisation that is proven to put purpose ahead of profits. We have enjoyed working with their volunteers to help with a mug-making activity. We are now working alongside them to create an introduction gift for our new employees, these include printed mugs, pens and notebooks.
