In IT Services, No More Salespeople Consulting, Office 365

Microsoft Office 365 can help your employees work in new and more efficient ways. It is more than software. It is a combination of productivity apps that can be installed on a number of PCs and Macs, and cloud-based tools for sharing files and holding online meetings. Here are just some of the benefits you can expect to receive when using Microsoft Office 365.

Accessibility

Office 365 lives in the cloud. This means that you can access all of your Microsoft Office applications, important documents, and email from anywhere you can get an Internet connection and from virtually any device – PC, Mac, Android tablets and smartphones, iPhones, and iPads. However, this functionality may depend on which subscription plan you choose to migrate to. See below for subscription plans.

Data Security

Worried about your data’s security? Don’t be! Office 365 has built-in security and continuous compliance. This means that businesses both big and small don’t have to sacrifice their data’s security for the convenience of the cloud. The use of anti-malware software, data encryption, and Exchange Online Protection (EOP) are just a few of the many principle mechanisms employed by Microsoft in ensuring your security.

Inter-Office Collaboration

Combining cloud storage with a communication tool, such as Yammer or Skype, allows your employees to collaborate from most anywhere. This makes the issue of decreased productivity a distant memory. In fact, 46 percent of working adults feel more productive when using collaboration tools such as these, according to a 2014 Pew Research Center survey.

Choosing a Subscription Plan
