Office 365 for Business puts all of your favorite Microsoft apps in one place, the Cloud. You can now access Outlook, Word, Excel, and Powerpoint from either the comfort of your home on your tablet, your local coffee shop on your phone, or in your office computer on a normal Wednesday. Anytime, anywhere Office 365 for Business provides you and your company with the tools to streamline, protect, organize, and economize your company all while using the familiar Microsoft products we all know and love.
Office 365 for Business moves all your office applications to cloud, allowing you to work anywhere. It is time to say goodbye to the Virtual Private Network, and hello to working on your home Wifi. Office 365 eliminates time spent updating, installing, and syncing new applications or computer programs. The program is designed to automatically update and install new apps, keeping everything up to date from behind the scenes. Office 365 also covers the software licensing, crossing another thing off of your to do list.
Switching to an online platform of data storage can be intimidating. It is comforting to be able to visibly see your hardware and know it is safe. However, Cloud solutions like Office 365 for Business provide many different measures to insure security. First of all, the only people who access your information are the ones you authorize, so you are always aware of who has access. Also, there is multi-factor or two step verification, which requires a second device in order to sign in, making more barriers of protection. Along with access from any device, you can also wipe data from any device. If for some reason you feel there is a breach in security, but you are not in the office you can wipe from your phone.
Easy to use
You may be thinking these products are not for you because they are too “technologically saavy,” but trust us, they are. Each app has built in intelligence. For example, in Word there are tools such as Researcher and Editor. Researcher takes away the tedious task of finding and citing your sources, and Editor streamlines your editing process. In PowerPoint you can use Designer to automatically create professional, creative, or informative themes for your presentation. All you have to do is provide a little information and PowerPoint will do the rest. These products are designed for all companies, even those without access to IT services, so they are especially user friendly.
Office 365 also eases the burden of office wide organization. Once your company makes the switch, everyone’s calendar, email, and contacts are all synched in the Cloud. The management task of coordinating schedules is practically eliminated as you each have access to the other’s schedule. If you were to have a last minute change you can easily update everyone from your phone, tablet, or any other device.
What is this going to cost? Great question, with an easy answer. Whatever you need it to. Office 365 for Business has a monthly billing system that is flexible per your company’s needs. You can adjust it each month according to how much you need to use. If you are in a season of growth you can increase, but if you are looking to save some cash you can decrease.
Office 365 for Business has many benefits, but one of the best is it uses the same Microsoft Office products we all know and love. The Cloud seamlessly coordinates with the tools you already know, making your switch easier without a whole new product line to learn.
In a fast-paced ever changing business environment Office 365 is a simple solution to help you keep up. It gives your company a professional image and creates opportunities to optimize your time, energy, and resources.
