Efficiency in business is critical, now more than ever. Competition is stiff, budgets are tight, and you need your business to be on top. Being able to create, collaborate and communicate easily makes an organization more effective. A more effective organization is a more profitable organization. Access to productivity tools that enable people to do their jobs more easily, and from anywhere, securely, makes organizations agile and helps them compete in their sector.
Access Your Files from Anywhere Plus Business Continuity
Office 365 allows your organization to store all the files in the cloud meaning they can be accessed on any device, from any location with an internet connection. For organizations where mobile workers are essential, being able to access all the apps and files they need when out of the office can be invaluable. In the event of a disaster, with your files on the cloud (properly backed up), no matter what happens to your device, your email, files, and data are safely stored in the cloud. Microsoft Exchange also has recovery features which means individual emails or even entire mailboxes can be restored if required. No matter the situation, it can be “business as usual” if you are using Office 365 for Business.
Secure Cloud Storage and Centralized Collaboration
Office 365 is a secure platform with robust security options, like two-factor authentication which means unauthorizes people cannot access your business data even if they get on your device. Sharing mailboxes, calendars, contacts or editing documents in real time while collaborating with a co-worker. This is what productivity looks like. For any business, the range of features provided by Office 365 are unmatched.
Bad email service is bad. Too much spam getting through, mailboxes being hacked due to poor server security all equals lost productivity. Good email service is easy to use while keeping communication centralized and integrated. Threat detection and anti-malware measures means security threats are identified and blocked immediately. Outlook, Teams and Skype all tightly integrate with Word, Excel and PowerPoint to provide seamless cross-department collaboration and customer/client communication.
Predictable Spend and Automatic Upgrades
Office 365 is per user, per month subscription and the level of functionality and associated cost is driven by the business’s operational needs. By paying per user & role/need, the company has a predictable outgoing and this helps budget the annual IT spend. Upgrades are also always included in the subscription; unlike the old “buy it once-you own it” model which forced a significant upgrade purchase every few years. The monthly licensing is scalable, meaning as staff are hired or fired, license counts can be adjusted so you never pay for licensing you are not using.
