Company Bulletin Notice:
Significant changes are in the works at First American Business and we wanted to share the exciting highlights with you in this Company Bulletin Notice:
New Name: We have simplified our name to First American Business. Because of our rapid growth in both the government sector and the commercial market, we had aligned our staff and processes to support both lines of business under First American Business Solutions (First ABS) and First American Business Enterprise (First ABE). While we do still have that focus to drive performance and results based on the needs of both markets we realized that it has caused some confusion with our customers and we want to make doing business with us easier! Hence the new, simplified name “First American Business”.
Single Web Landing Page: Effective August 1, we have a new single web site landing page: www.firstamericanbusinss.com
Users of this site can access the First ABS and ABE specific information but only need to bookmark a single site to get all the news and updates regarding First American Business.
Single Collaboration System: Effective August 8th, the First American Business team is migrating to our new collaboration platform on Office 365. As we have continued to grow in the project line of business, it was determined that more functionality and consistency was needed. Office 365 gives us the ability to use Outlook calendars, share calendars, have access to Skype for Business, back up our work on OneDrive Storage, and much more!
We are moving forward with our email migration to MS 365 Exchange.
Following the migration all of our employees’ companywide will have a single email address utilizing “@firstamericanbusiness.com”
Our new email addresses will look like: Lauren.Thompson@firstamericanbusiness.com.
Other key company email addresses will be:
- Accounts Payable: email@example.com
- Service Request and General Company Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
New Ticketing System: Starting in October, First American Business will officially be on our new Intelligent Service Management (Ticketing) System. This new system will allow us to serve our customers better through a single portal for Problem Management, Incident management and reporting.
