Welcome to Day 5 of Calligo’s 12 Days of Christmas – a series of blogs that each highlight an important issue, a lesson to learn or a key resource that will help your business maximise the value of its data.
This blog focusses on the benefits Microsoft Office 365 delivers to your business.
Microsoft Office 365 is an industry-leading, secure, cloud-based collaboration platform. But more often than not, Office 365 is mistaken for little more than email, Word, Excel and PowerPoint in the cloud. However, it is so much more.
Here are our top 5 reasons why migrating to Office 365 will benefit your business.
As long as they have an internet connection, with Office 365, your workforce will be able to work from anywhere, at any time, on any device.
This is particularly useful for organizations who operate across different geographies as well as have employees who work remotely, either through travelling, at-home offices or whilst at client offices.
In addition to being able to work from anywhere, Office 365 has a range of impressive collaboration tools – from improved file sharing and multiple ways to communicate, including video conferencing, voice calls and chat. Many companies are even finding that these more natural, dialogue-based communication tools are
- Encrypted email: Keeping anyone other than the intended recipient from reading your emails.
- Mobile device management:This enables your IT team to control how Office 365 is used on your employees’ mobile devices, and protect company information. If somebody’s device is lost or compromised, you can instantly delete your company’s data remotely.
- Advanced threat analytics:This unique feature scans emails as they land into inboxes for malicious links and attachments preventing malware attacks.
- Multi-factor authentication:Office 365 is enabled with full multi-factor authentication – a network security process that requires users to input more than one method of identity verification, and which combats more than 95% of small business cyber attacks.
Office 365 is a subscription-based service, meaning businesses pay an annual or monthly fee per user, eliminating high up-front licence fee and renewal costs.
And, thanks to Office 365’s scalability, organizations have the freedom to add and remove services or users as and when required, avoiding unnecessary spend.
