Being able to create, collaborate and communicate effectively is a must for any organisation these days. Having access to productivity tools that enable employees to do their jobs efficiently, whether in the office or remotely, will not only make your business more agile, but increase the motivation and productivity of your team.
Microsoft 365 is Microsoft’s productivity suite and includes tools like Word, Exchange, Excel, SharePoint and Teams. It is a full-featured, cloud-based system that can be accessed from anywhere, and on any device with an internet connection.
Microsoft 365 products not only work seamlessly together, but it is a cost-effective solution that brings productivity benefits to any business.
Here are our top five reasons you should choose Microsoft 365 for your business.
1. Work Anywhere
One of the key advantages of Microsoft 365 is it’s a cloud-based system providing 1TB of cloud storage with each subscription, so your employees can work from anywhere and on any device – computer, phones, and tablets. If there’s an internet connection, emails and files stored in the cloud can be opened and edited regardless of where they are.
Microsoft 365 is secure environment with robust security measures, like two-factor authentication. This means that if a device is lost, people can’t access your files. In addition, security threats are identified immediately with its built-in threat and anti-malware detection.
3. Affordability and flexibility
Microsoft 365 is a subscription based model which offers different tiers with different applications and products enabling you to choose the right level of functionality for your business. The service is paid monthly per user, so there is no huge upfront licensing cost, and can be scaled up or down at any time. In addition, Microsoft 365 comes with free upgrades that run automatically, so you’ll always be working with the latest version of applications.
4. Easy sharing and collaboration
With the collaborative tools Microsoft 365 provides, you can share mailboxes, calendars, contacts and edit documents in real time. The SharePoint Online platform facilitates sharing content both inside and outside your business. This means that no longer will versions of documents go missing as colleagues and clients can share and collaborate on files together in real time, and sharing files via email can be linked, rather than sent as attachments.
Most people have used Microsoft products during their professional careers, so Microsoft 365 isn’t a brand new platform you or your employees will need to learn. It has the same familiarity all Microsoft products have, so you won’t have any downtime or expense training employees. Although it has some new features with cloud services or using SharePoint or other add-ons, they still have the familiar Microsoft feel making it easy to get up and running quickly.
