5 Advantages of using Office 365
What if you can access all of your favorite applications anywhere? Better yet, what if
you can view, edit and share all of your files seamlessly from any device? Microsoft’s Office 365 keeps up with you in this fast-paced world, bringing along with it all the tools you and your business need for productivity and success.
A cloud-based software, Office 365 includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, SharePoint, Microsoft Teams, and Access (PC only). Cloud computing allows you to store and access data and programs over the internet instead of your computer’s hard drive, which is invaluable for businesses small and large. However, the Office 365 suite may also be conveniently downloaded to your local machine if desired.
Here are some advantages of Office 365:
Cloud computing allows you to be on the same page as your team day after day, week after week. It’s no longer necessary to send and re-send documents, photos and videos, because you can share your files instantly over the internet. You can even work with coworkers on spreadsheets and other documents simultaneously, as if you’re side-by-side even when you’re on different ends of the office (or the globe).
Collaboration goes a step further with Microsoft Teams – a group chat program that allows you to instant message, hold online meetings, make standard calls, and communicate across all of your devices. Connectivity has never been easier.
Tired of waiting for updates, or worse, having to pay for the latest versions of your favorite word processing and other programs? It can be cumbersome and slow your performance. With your Office 365 subscription, it’s smooth sailing, as you’re always working on the latest version, with the latest updates. And it’s not only you who has the latest version, every single person in the office can receive the updates simultaneously, so you will all be in sync. This ensures that you are fully integrated with your team and at the cutting edge.
Working from home? Your favorite cafe? The plane? A villa in Italy? No problem. Gone are the days where you need to be chained to a desk or spend hours on the phone with an IT professional to access your files and stay dialed in with your team. All of your files can be accessed from anywhere at anytime, and made visible to your colleagues in real time. All you need is internet connection.
Sharing information is not only easier than ever, it’s more secure than ever. Office 365 has built-in security and compliance solutions that keep your files protected in the cloud. You will always know who has access to your files; and if you were to lose a device, you can simply wipe the data from that device. Further, when files are saved on the cloud, they are untouched by power outages, natural disasters, hard drive malfunctions and any other technical tragedies that can potentially occur. Your files remain safe and sound, and always in the right hands.
Connectivity, freedom, security – all of the aforementioned features ultimately culminate to growth for your business. There are no hiccups, no slow downs, no lost files and no being left behind. Office 365 ensures that you and your team are always at the front lines.
