Agrii’s Microsoft Viva Journey

Agrii provides intelligence and data to 20,000 British farmers, representing some 40% of UK agricultural output. Agrii provide agronomy services, technology, and strategic advice to farmers in the UK.

In spring 2021, Agrii, required a new employee experience platform that would promote their values through powerful internal branding and support employee wellbeing and productivity. The solution needed to leverage SharePoint Modern and Microsoft Teams and introduce the latest innovations, such as Viva Connections, to a diverse, hybrid workforce.

Today, Agrii have successfully delivered their digital workplace, including Viva Connections, to their head office staff and frontline workers, that include agronomists who require information from Microsoft 365, even when they are in a field.

In this session we will hear from Derek Wilson, CIO at Agrii and Andreea Ailenei, Programme Manager at Agrii. Wes Hackett (9 time Microsoft MVP) and Suzy Dean (5 time Microsoft MVP) from their Microsoft Charter Partner, AddIn365, will also take to the stage.
