All Microsoft solutions are protected, familiar and flexible. Microsoft® Office 365 delivers the power of cloud productivity to businesses of all sizes. In addition to the old favourite applications such as Word, Excel, Power Point and Outlook, Office 365 also offers SharePoint, Skype (formerly Lync), OneDrive, and more.
1 - Security / Reliability / Capacity
With Office 365, your data is protected with the highest standard of physical and digital security. Microsoft Exchange Online has built-in antivirus and spam filtering protections designed to address new virus and spam threats - known and unknown - as soon as they appear. Office 365 is a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), with a financially-backed Service Level Agreement for guaranteed 99.9 percent scheduled uptime.
Office 365 cloud storage provides mailbox storage of 50 GB, and file storage of one TB.
2 - Accessibility
Office 365, Microsoft’s OneDrive cloud hosting service gives you 24/7/365 access to business email and projects. Each Office 365 user can sync their license to up to five different devices, including any PC/Mac, iOS, Android or Windows device. Should you run into a situation where you don’t have Internet access, you can still be efficient. You can continue to work on your OneDrive for Business or SharePoint Online documents offline and sync them back to the server when you have an Internet connection.
3 - Communication and Engagement
To help you plan meetings, the Scheduling assistant functionality lets you know whether the person you want to invite is free, busy, working elsewhere, out of office, or has a tentative meeting on the calendar.
Outlook Online lets you share your calendar with someone outside your organization to let them know your availability. Share it using their email address and choose whether to give them full details from your calendar, limited details, or just show your availability.
Office 365’s Skype for Business functionality for videoconferencing, online meetings, and instant messaging are effective productivity tools for any size business.
Use Yammer, a private social network designed for businesses, to increase communication on a more social level. This lets employees build and enjoy a stronger sense of belonging.
4 - Collaboration and Teamwork
Office 365 allows you to define a group or team and enable its members to meet, share calendars, exchange files, and take and share notes using Onenote.
Document collaboration is a critical element to working effectively as a team. SharePoint and Office allows multi-person editing a document at the same time. Rather than attaching a document to an email and send it to several contributors, the user can provide co-authors a link to the document and track all document versions.
Use SharePoint also as a key storage platform, to schedule and assign tasks and more.
With Office 365, you can focus on your business’ raison-d’être rather than spending time and energy on managing technology. Use all its functionalities to the fullest and help increase your teams’ productivity.
