How Does Office 365 Work?
From writing the occasional letter in Word, to updating multiple Excel spreadsheets on an hourly basis, every business uses Microsoft Office. However, many teams have limited productivity levels because access is restricted to computers in the workplace. Sometimes problems can even arise due to calendars and other resources being unavailable outside of business hours. If you think that you would benefit from the ability to use these applications anywhere you go, we highly recommend Office 365.
Office 365 presents the familiar system powered by the cloud and allows you to use applications and files from any PC, Mac, tablet or mobile device connected to the Internet, which can prove invaluable. Some of our customers think that we’re simply referring to staff being able to work from home, which may not be applicable to some companies, but it goes way beyond that. Office 365 means that you always have the power to read files no matter where you are, so if a client sends you an important document that requires your input when you’re on the train, or inspiration strikes in the middle of the night and you wish to work from your phone, it’s never been easier to get things done. Moreover, it makes commuting an extension of your working day, and unavoidable delays in your schedule no longer mean a gap in efficiency.
An especially useful factor is that Office 365 doesn’t require Microsoft licensing upgrades, so it can be deployed to every member of staff across the company. The package also runs system updates automatically, so you can rest assured that everyone’s using the same version, eliminating incompatibility and formatting errors.
Office 365 includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook, which means that documents, spreadsheets, databases, presentations, appointments and all of your emails are accessible everywhere 24/7. In the event of disaster, theft or damage in the workplace, your team can operate as efficiently from a different location as they can from their desks. This also applies if you’re moving premises or want to provide remote working options for employees. With Office 365, documents can be created and edited in any browser on any device using any operating system, so it really is universally available.
Delivered through a monthly plan, you can choose the Office 365 tier that’s perfect for your requirements. If you need to change your plan, you have the freedom to do so on a monthly basis. With business class email and calendaring, online conferencing, simple file sharing, first-class security and ease of use as standard, Office 365 is revolutionising the way people do business.
