In light of recent events, the demand for remote working capabilities has skyrocketed. Businesses are more than ever in need of secure, continuous access to their data – no matter where they’re working. However, not every organization has the technology already in place to be able to guarantee this leading to frustrations and productivity loss.
Microsoft Office 365 helps remove the burden of remote working and the fear of lost productivity as it not only provides the secure access mentioned above, but also provides additional communication and collaboration capabilities that will increase your productivity for the days and weeks ahead, and continue to do so even when office working returns.
Here are our top 5 reasons why Microsoft Office 365, an industry-leading, secure, cloud-based collaboration platform, will help keep your teams together, improve communication and increase productivity.
If you have access to an internet connection, with Microsoft Office 365, you can work from any location, at any time, across any device.
Microsoft Office 365 is a subscription-based service. This means you pay an annual or monthly fee per user and have the freedom to add additional services and users, as well as being able to remove them when required, preventing unnecessary spend.
Office 365 is not always used to its full potential. Often mistaken for little more than email, Word, Excel and PowerPoint, businesses often overlook its expansive communication and collaboration qualities, which is excellent for keeping teams connected and together, especially when working from home.
Microsoft Teams is a customizable shared workspace that gives your workforce multiple options to communicate (chat, IM, video, voice) either 1 to 1 or in teams, or even collaborate externally. When integrated with OneDrive, it also allows easy sharing of files individually or amongst groups, and allows simultaneous viewing and editing of Office documents.
Its collaboration uses are so strong that we ourselves are taking advantage of this feature more than ever to not only connect with our customers but to connect internally with colleagues, ensuring we stay connected, just as we would in the office.
Microsoft Office 365 is more than just a collaboration platform. It also brings the ability to make more of your data, organize your teams and bring them together, as well enabling projects to be easier to navigate and more transparent.
