Everyone is talking about Office 365 – a licensing model from Microsoft which allows your employees to collaborate together in new and more efficient ways. In essence, it is a cloud-based version of the traditional Microsoft Office software. It is particularly suited to the small-to-medium enterprise market, with a range of advantages that can increase productivity and decrease expenditure. Benefits of this model include:
Data security and control
Office 365 has a lot of built-in security features to keep your company’s data safe including encrypted email, data loss prevention policies, Mobile Device Management and Advanced Threat Analytics (ATA) which can alert you of any suspicious behaviour on your network.
Office 365 allows you to work from anywhere and at any time making it the most flexible office solution on the market.
No matter what happens, you will always be able to access your files and folders. In the event of internet downtime, offline versions of your documents can be worked on and then uploaded when the internet is next available.
Your business does not need to worry about upfront costs. Flexible monthly billing allows companies to plan ahead and ‘pay-as-you-grow’ with more added users when necessary.
Complete Administrative Control
If you are a small business owner, software licenses can be a real headache. Deployed company-wide, everyone has the same version and are all up-to-date.
