Office 365 for Business is much more than just Microsoft Office in the cloud. It offers many benefits for businesses, assisting growth, saving money to name a few.
Office 365 gives you flexibility to scale your business quickly as it can grow with you. Businesses have the ability to mix and match apps to create your own custom solution for each user or department, and it’s easy to add or remove users by simply adding or eliminating licenses.
Since you can scale up as needed, your team can continue to work with the tools they are familiar with as you grow, you don’t have to change to a new system or adapt to new tools.
One of the main benefits of Office 365 is the capability to work from anywhere as long as you have internet connectivity. Because it’s entirely cloud-based, email, files and Office programs (including Word, PowerPoint, Excel, etc.) can be accessed from any location and any device. You can create, edit, and share from your PC, Mac or your iOS, Android, or Windows device with anyone in real time.
This is particularly beneficial for companies with multiple locations, remote employees or employees who travel often.
Office 365 is always up to date because it’s in the cloud, so you’ll have access to the latest versions at no additional charge; Gone are the times of software upgrades or patches. Microsoft continually adds new features and capabilities, and you have access to them as soon as they are introduced.
A common misconception about the cloud is that it’s not secure. However, in reality, it isn’t necessarily any more or less safe than an on-premise system. It’s all in how you use it and what security measures you put in place.
