09 Dec ALL HAIL MICROSOFT OFFICE 365
Businesses flourish when they are equipped with the best technological tools, and one such suite of tools that need your ultimate attention is Microsoft Office 365. Chances are high that your organisation might already be using Microsoft for years now. So why move to Office 365? Well, to make the most out of the cloud-first environment!
One of the important features of Office 365 that caught our eyes is its in-cloud availability of not only your favourite productivity tools, but, your files & folders and communication & collaboration services right out of the box. You no longer require in-house hosting within your premises to then incur infrastructure and maintenance costs, but instead, you can simply pay for the services you need on its flexible and scalable subscription model.
Office 365 doesn’t hold you back in the slightest. With a license included that allows installation of the Office desktop client on up to five devices from a single subscription, you’re certainly getting your money’s worth! The suite itself provides you with a range of brilliant tools; including the infamous Word, Excel and PowerPoint… not to mention the communication & productivity power of Teams, OneDrive and SharePoint.
Used by 80 percent of companies… are you using it yet?
Used by a vast range of businesses and companies, when it comes to the office, Microsoft is second to none.
The phrase ‘jump on the bandwagon’ might come to mind. However, in this case, Office 365 is not only just popular by name, but highly regarded as the best suite for Business, ever. So, it makes sense to reap all the benefits of the suite and speak the same technical language as everyone else.
Not only this, but Office 365 makes way for better communication and collaboration. With Microsoft Teams, the fastest-growing application in its history, boasts over 13 million daily active users and is used by over 500,000 organisations.
Teams is Microsoft’s answer to a single-pane-of-glass application covering an open range of our day to day communication & collaboration requirements. Operating both internally & externally to your business, Teams cuts out the time that is lost in the dark of numerous third-party services, along with the pain & disappointment that comes with the more traditional team working by older methods, such as email.
Talking about advanced cooperation, introducing SharePoint and OneDrive; SharePoint is an industry-leading document management and collaboration tool… a rich, structured platform that makes it easy to create and share business resources & information from a single web location. OneDrive can seamlessly connect employees with the documents, information, people, and projects they need to perform their jobs, wherever they are.
Boosting productivity whilst saving you from additional, unwanted costs along the way.
What’s so great about Microsoft 365?
Office 365 is equipped with an array of stylish features, not limited to:
