Toronto, ON – Canadian Tire Corporation operates in the automotive, hardware, sports, leisure, and housewares sectors. Its Canadian operations include Canadian Tire, Mark’s, FGL Sports, PartSource, and Party City.

BALANCED+ was chosen by Microsoft and the client to implement Microsoft Teams as a proof of concept at one of its stores. This store was using a traditional PBX phone system that was proving unreliable and costly to maintain. It was desirable to migrate to Microsoft Teams for its IP-based collaboration, video, and team communication needs.

BALANCED+ has been a Microsoft Sliver Partner since 2018 with specialization in a number of Microsoft applications and tools including the .NET Framework, Visual Studio, SharePoint, Microsoft Azure Stack, Microsoft Web API, and Office 365.

BALANCED+ successfully implemented Microsoft 365 services for the Canadian Tire store including Teams Telephony, Instant Messaging, Shifts, Tasks, Walkie-Talkie, and Meetings.

The proof of concept was successful, and the client now has efficient and reliable store communications complimented by the full suite of Microsoft Teams business tools to keep its operation running at optimum capacity.
