Microsoft Office 365 – boosting efficiency and productivity for less

The modern business has become more mobile and more global. We are no longer limited to our desks and desktop computers and todays office workers expect to be able to access work from virtually anywhere and increasingly, from any device. As the workplace has evolved, so too has the basic productivity toolkit we all use.

Seven years since its launch, Office 365 has become the most popular enterprise cloud service. It is estimated that one out of every five employees use an Office 365 cloud service and the number of users is increasing daily.

Why are companies choosing Office 365 – and why should you?

Collaborate whenever you need to

Teams can co-author documents in real time using Word, PowerPoint and Excel. As changes are made, the document will automatically be updates and colour coding lets everyone see who made which changes.

Forget about downtime

When you store your documents in Microsoft’s secure cloud, you get to access them from anywhere, on any device and at any time. Lights out or a failed network need never dictate the productivity of your business again.

Use the latest version of Office – always

Because you pay for your software on a monthly basis with Office 365, you always have access to the latest updates to your office suite. While this significantly enhances security as we discuss in this post, it also gives your team access to the advanced productivity add-ons that Office 365 incorporates.

The biggest range of apps and services yet

Office 365 is not limited to email, word processing and spreadsheets only. The integration of a wide range of productivity apps means that you’re able to communicate faster and more easily using tools that are simple and intuitive, yet advanced and easy to integrate.
