Selecting the right technology for your business can be stressful. To take some of this pressure off, we took a few minutes to set out four reasons why we like Microsoft Office 365 for Business. It’s a subscription-based Software as a Service offering that provides an easy productivity suite for small business, and we think it’s a big improvement.
Cloud services offer one of the most innovative and powerful advantages for modern businesses. By offering convenient collaboration solutions, the cloud connects workers and assists them with daily tasks. With an Internet connection, you can access important applications like Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and Outlook on any approved device.
A handy program called Planner allows you to easily manage projects and keep employees on the same page. Users can collaborate in real time and make and see edits as others are making them, without needing to refresh the page constantly.
Office 365 saves money up front since you are essentially renting the program, making small monthly payments instead of large up-front costs. You’re also not responsible for maintenance and upgrade costs, so Office 365 also saves you money in the long run.
One of the major problems with Office has been that it’s somewhat difficult to scale to the size of your business, which presents problems for growing businesses. Office 365 is a flexible and scalable solution. You can easily add new users, services, features, and storage. Your Office 365 solution can grow alongside your business and adapt to your specific needs.
