Multimodal workstyles allow teams to increase productivity

Lantern has embraced a new way of working called “multimodal workstyles” to overcome the problems of traditional hybrid work. This approach helps their teams be more flexible and effective in delivering results to clients by leaving old methods behind.

In simple terms, it means Lantern’s teams can switch between different work modes based on the task at hand and their personal preferences. This framework not only fosters collaboration but also inclusivity and adaptability, making it a valuable asset in their work toolkit.

“The formation of Lantern is a momentous occasion. We are fortunate to be building upon the stellar reputations of Artis, DevFacto and Marquam, to launch a new company that taps into the unparalleled capabilities of Microsoft technologies to provide game-changing digital and AI-driven solutions,” said Lantern’s CEO, Jim Olson.

“Our team is hyper-focused on driving valuable business outcomes for our clients to achieve competitive advantage within their respective industries.”

Clients can also use Lantern for comprehensive support for Microsoft products, including strategy development, solution implementation and ongoing optimization.

Lantern is dedicated to cultivating a culture of innovation and continuous learning. Its employees span four North American time zones, and their management team consists of experienced Microsoft consulting leaders.
