Business can get confusing. All those documents and deadlines and client requests constantly flying around are immensely distracting. This can cause you to skip over vital steps, like saving a document, or clicking “share.” These may seem like little errors at the time, but forgetting to share an urgent document or save the final changes of a contract can snowball into a big, destructive mess.
Office 365 for business is here to help you cut down on all that confusion. With features such as email, online meetings, file sharing, video management, etc. all in one, centralized place, in an easy to use format, you’ll wish you made the switch sooner.
What is Office 365 for Business?
Office 365 is an improved version of Microsoft’s Office suite. How? Well, first of all, it is always updated and there are no large licensing costs. 365 has also moved to the cloud. Don’t worry, all your favorite softwares from before are still there. The only difference now is that they are seamlessly connected to this enterprise software living out in the cloud.
Access anytime, anywhere
Because everything is stored in a Microsoft data center, everything is centrally located in one place. This is a great advantage. This aids in all kinds of situations, such as needing to switch devices, or working from a different location. As long as you have an internet connection and a device, you will have access to your files.
Office 365 for business also offers collaboration solutions that make life much simpler in this communication driven world. For example, the premium plan includes Skype-supported video conferencing and larger file sharing capabilities.
Everything being centrally located in one place is also an important feature. Because of this, you always have “a single source of truth.” What this means is that if you make a change to a document on your phone at home, then your boss views that document at work, he will be seeing the most up-to-date document. No more confusion about what you saved where. And, did we mention that it saves automatically? No need to worry about constantly clicking “ctrl+s” anymore!
Office 365 for Business also makes it a priority to ensure that your company’s information is as secure as possible. For example, you can control who you share your files with. SharePoint (in Office 365) also allows you to check out a document and edit it without anybody else editing at the same time. They give you, the administrator, complete control over your environment. And just to make sure you’re always safe, they have automatic reminders of security policies when sharing certain files. No need to worry here.
Even with all these features, Office 365 is still simple to use, a quality that Microsoft is proud of. Increasing simplicity yields greater productivity. When technology is confusing and in the way, you can’t focus on your job. Think of how convenient features like automatic saving or keyboard shortcuts are. We used to write on typewriters back in the day. Look at where technology is now!
