Microsoft 365 Productivity & Management Tools
Microsoft 365 Productivity and Management Tools are taking the business world by storm. Businesses are now utilizing the suite of Microsoft applications and services every day. As a result, they are more mobile, agile, and technologically progressive than those relying solely on their on-premise IT infrastructure.
SOME REASONS FOR MOVING TO MICROSOFT 365:
- Better collaboration tools for your team whether they are working in the same office or remotely.
- Free up internal or external staff resources currently being used to maintain an on-premises Microsoft Exchange Server.
- Get predictable monthly operating costs for easier budgeting.
- Expand on your cloud initiative to shed internal infrastructure and capital costs.
- Reduce downtime that you experience with your current email solution.
THERE IS A RAPID MOVEMENT TO MICROSOFT 365
Microsoft 365 is now approaching 300 million users, and that number has grown from 200 million in just over a year. The pandemic drove many businesses to adapt to cloud-based solutions like Microsoft 365. For example, enterprise-class businesses have moved their email and other tools to the Microsoft Cloud. Licensing is done on a per-user subscription basis and can be adjusted as your business needs change.
Microsoft 365 is available in a variety of plans. Most include traditional Microsoft Applications such as Outlook, Word, Excel, and Powerpoint. Additionally, the various packages include services like OneDrive, Sharepoint, and Microsoft Teams. Many Microsoft 365 subscriptions include desktop applications for the Mac and PC as well as online versions to provide access to applications even when no internet connection is available.
MICROSOFT 365 CATERS TO THE NEW “WORK-FROM-HOME” BUSINESS CULTURE
Your work-from-home and mobile workers will enjoy the convenience of having their files and email available all of the time. No more dragging along thumb drives, CDs, or other legacy storage devices. Also, Microsoft Teams allows remote workers to easily communicate with co-workers, collaborate on projects, and conduct virtual meetings, all from the comfort of their home office.
We have a few blog posts on several of the Microsoft 365 products and services, take a look at a couple of them here and here. If your business is contemplating the move to Microsoft 365 or would like to get more out of your current implementation, reach out and talk to one of our experts.
