Microsoft Office 365

The cloud based productivity suite from Microsoft

Office 365 is Microsoft’s state of the art IT Management and is changing the way businesses work.

With technology at the forefront of innovation, it’s extremely important to keep your company up to speed with the current technology. IT Management is much the same and over the last few decades have seen incredible leaps and bounds making it such an interesting sector to work in.

If you haven’t already – it’s definitely worth thinking about migrating to Microsoft Office 365. Lots of companies are using outdated technology which underpins their work despite new platforms and solutions being available.

Lots of people don’t like change – but could this cost you your company? (Blockbuster anyone?)

Staying with old software hinders progress, productivity and could cause serious damage to your company if the worst happens. Older programs go out of support meaning that the manufacturer no longer updates the software (usually because newer software is available) so if a serious issue occurs – you might not be able to fix it.

This also includes security – as the old, outdated software is so much more vulnerable to the current climate of malicious threats.

Microsoft Office 365 offer a range of different programs and at difference levels depending on your needs, making it perfect for business use. It’s compatible and cloud based – Start a word documents on your PC, edit it on the train home on your mobile and finish it at home on your tablet.

It’ll grow with your business

Office 365 works on a system of “you pay for what you get”. When your organisation grows, you can simply upgrade to the services and data storage you need. OneDrive for Business – the data storage side of the stack – offers a huge amount of space at an amazingly affordable cost. You’ll never have the headache of buying new hard drive for storage space ever again.

Working anywhere from any device

Being based in the cloud, Office 365 means your colleagues no longer need to be chained to the desk to access company data and be productive. It’s possible to work from mobiles, tablets and laptops on the go – and it’s all backed up by comprehensive security measures.

Office web apps – work Online

Office 365 is focused on making your workflows more streamlined and more collaborative than ever. The stack includes the full MS Office productivity suite accessible online which means colleagues can quickly make edits, comments and improvements on documents in real time without having to check out and download the document.
