with purpose-built tools

Reap the rewards of technology by putting productivity tools to work.

Empower your workforce and ease their workloads.


In the modern workplace, productivity tools are the secret weapons to drive collaboration, innovation, and efficiency across your teams.

With rapid technological advancements, new features, and regular updates – the impact of productivity tools increases by the day. And, by putting them to proper use as part of your IT infrastructure, you supercharge both your workforce and individual workloads and aim for far more ambitious goals.

The opportunities are endless, but we can help you navigate the busy market, identify the best products for your business, and bring your workforce up to speed to get the most out of your productivity tools.


It all starts with listening to your people, finding out what drives their behaviours, and where we can save them time and effort with productivity tools. However complex your challenges, your sector, or your workloads – we’ll find a way to make it easier.

Bringing technology and technique together.

We’re powered by people but driven by our software and systems. That’s why our technical specialists are experts in more than just IT, and why every solution we build for you will take into account your users as much as your infrastructure.

Cutting edge consultancy

We combine our experimental nature with rigorous testing, meaning we keep up with new technologies and can find and secure competitive advantages for you whenever they arise.


Overcoming the obstacles in productivity

We all know how the Microsoft Office 365 element of the M365 suite can improve the way we work, but understanding the entire productivity app market (and which options are best for which outcomes) needs an expert eye.

The biggest issues our clients face with productivity tools:



Knowing what you want to achieve, and assessing the capabilities of each app, is the first step in finding the right product for your business.


With so many options, finding the right fit can be challenging. Doing your research, asking for recommendations, and interviewing potential vendors is key to finding an expert (and a product) that delivers what you need.


To avoid being distracted by discounts and low prices, seeking consultative support can help you to identify the real value behind the tools you’re considering. Knowing your way around terms, contracts, licenses, and usage fees is an essential part of getting what you need for the price you want.


Once you’ve picked the right product for your business, implementing it is often the next challenge. Training staff, changing processes, and integrating with legacy systems all need careful consideration to get the most out of your new tech.


And finally, any new software needs to fit your security setup. Productivity tools often store sensitive user and company information, and you may need to implement additional security measures and protocols to protect your data from cyber threats.

The changing landscape of productivity

Keeping pace with new products is part and parcel of keeping your competitive advantage:

Mobile Productivity Tools

As more people rely on their mobile devices for work, the demand for mobile productivity tools has skyrocketed. Mobile tools allow users to stay productive on-the-go, access their files and data, and communicate with colleagues from anywhere. As remote working looks set to stick around for good, mobility is now a chief driving force in productivity tools.

Automation and AI

With productivity tools already saving your teams time and resource, the growing use of automation and artificial intelligence is taking it one step further. AI-powered productivity tools can help users automate routine tasks, generate insights, and optimise workflow. For example, AI-powered email tools can prioritise emails based on their importance, and AI-powered calendar tools can suggest the best times for meetings.

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.
