Office 365

The number of businesses adopting Office 365 is growing rapidly. With scalability, security, and mobility for your workers, it’s easy to see why. Here are our top 6 benefits of Office 365 for any business considering adopting Office 365.

1. Access at anytime, anywhere

Because Office 365 is Cloud-based, your staff can work anywhere there’s internet. One users’ licence can be applied to 5 different devices – laptops, PCs, mobile phones, and tablets which will all sync together – meaning that users can work on the go, increasing productivity. Your employees no longer have to be restricted to their desk or to strict work hours – they can work whilst at conferences, whilst having a client meeting over lunch, or on the weekends if they feel so inclined! This means that your team can collaborate more efficiently and close more deals where they couldn’t previously.

2. Collaborate easily inside and outside your organisation

Office 365’s Cloud-based nature means that internal and external collaboration is easy. Video and audio conferencing are available on the majority of plans through Skype for Business, as well as instant messaging. SharePoint also enables you to work on documents simultaneously with colleagues all around the world. Additional security features such as the Enterprise Mobility and Security (EM+S) Suite or Azure Information Protection (AIP) will ensure flexibility and total security.

3. Security and control

Security is a priority for Microsoft and for us. Microsoft’s datacentres have a financially-backed uptime guarantee to ensure your data is always available and always secure. Office 365 has a number of additional security features available as well to prevent malicious emails and phishing attacks. A huge benefit of the Cloud is the ability to patch and upgrade your software. Viruses are more often than not caused by vulnerabilities in software. Microsoft’s continual updates mean that you’ll be less susceptible to attacks.

4. Flexibility

Office 365 provides flexibility beyond any on premise solution. For example, if you need to employ new staff you can simply call us up and we’ll deploy a new licence in a matter of minutes. You can add and remove licences and add-ons, upgrade and downgrade your plans, and switch things around with ease. This flexibility means you’re in total control.

5. A predictable monthly cost

The flexibility that Office 365 provides goes hand in hand with the monthly payment model; you can say goodbye to the hefty and unpredictable upfront costs that are associated with the on-premise server. The subscription model means that you know exactly how much to expect each month.

6. Expert support for your business

From pre-sales through to technical support, we are here to support you every step of the way. We pride ourselves on our first-class, personable support. We won’t just sell you something and leave you to it; we can help you make the most out of your purchase, and with any questions or problems.
