Microsoft Office 365 is the suite of Microsoft softwares such as Microsoft Word, Microsoft Outlook, OneDrive and more. It is a suite of tools tailored to businesses who are seeking to streamline their operations and increase overall business productivity.
Let’s face it. If your in-house system crashes or your office building is destroyed by a fire or flood, you’re stuck. You have no data, servers or website. If you send your data to the cloud, all your business documents and applications, such as email, will always available. You’ll be up and running, no matter what happens.
Data security in the cloud isn’t an issue with Office 365. Office 365 has built-in security so small businesses can focus on the right things. You always know where your data is and who has access to it. You can also remotely wipe all data should you lose your mobile device.
So, go ahead and store your data safely in the cloud. Storing your data online also keeps it safe in case something unfortunate happens. Imagine losing your laptop or breaking it? Thanks to 1TB of OneDrive online storage, your data is safer than ever before.
Working remotely used to mean you needed help from an IT friend or cousin to set up a Virtual Private Network (VPN) so you could access your files from the office. With Office 365, this isn’t necessary. You don’t need any special configuration or IT skills. An internet connection is all you need and then you can start working. It’s that simple!
Meetings, email and contact management are a big part of everyday life in a small business. When you use Office 365, email, calendar and contacts are all synchronised. Update a contact on your mobile phone and it will be automatically updated across all your devices. This is a really cool feature to help small businesses get the most from Office 365. You can also access the same data from any device. Save a document on your PC and continue working on it on your mobile or tablet.
