Microsoft Office 365 offers beneficial advantages for your business that will help you stay ahead of the curve. Whether you need to streamline your collaborative abilities, have mobile access anywhere, or making sure your data stays secure, Office 365 has it all handled. It’s more than just a set of tools. It’s a new way of working.

Easy Communication & Collaboration
Office 365 makes it easy to collaborate with your team and to share and access information. You can create a password-protected portal to share large, hard-to-email files both inside and outside of your organization, giving you one location to find the latest versions of files or documents, all while multiple people are working on one or dozens of projects. Progress is tracked and noted so that anyone in the group can see what’s done and what’s waiting to be completed. Office 365 allows you to send instant messages to colleagues and customers and invite them to participate in online meetings where you can review documents or take control of a desktop.

Intuitive & Anyone Can Use It
Unlike some other programs or packages, Office is very user-friendly. You can create a trial account and see how easily your business can be “in the cloud” with benefits usually found only in larger organizations. It has an intuitive, easy to learn dashboard that is standardized between applications. Members who aren’t tech savvy can pick it up quickly and become fluent users of its suite of tools.

Microsoft Office 365 recognizes that users don’t want to give up the things that make them comfortable. It hasn’t changed your favorites. The only difference is that now they are seamlessly connected to the enterprise software living out in the cloud. You’ll see that your favorite applications are cloudified.
You do not need an on-site IT team to handle Office 365 issues and no one on your team needs to attend any kind of special certification to actually use this software.

Data Security, Safety & Control
Office 365 has built-in security and continuous compliance so small businesses can focus on the right things. Storing your data online keeps your data safe. You have the ability to remotely wipe all data if you lose your mobile device. Imagine losing your laptop or breaking it? Thanks to 1TB of OneDrive online storage, your data is all in one place and safe.

With Office 365, you can use the same systems used by Microsoft and other enterprises worldwide to help protect email, documents, and networks. These systems scan your messages and documents for spam and malware 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Microsoft data centers help safeguard your data and are certified to meet multiple industry-standard certifications. They offer a 99.9% uptime guarantee via a financially backed SLA (Service Level Agreement) to provide you with peace of mind.

Accessibility Anywhere, Anytime
Microsoft Office 365 provides web-enabled access to email, important documents, contacts, and calendar on almost any device- desktop, tablet, laptop, or Smartphone. If you’re traveling without access to Microsoft Office, Office 365 helps you view and edit documents from the web.

Office 365 allows your team to open and process documents, access contacts and calendar information and send emails from any connected device. The software is running in a Microsoft data center, so you simply connect to the Internet to access the software. If you make a change to a document from your laptop at home and then your team member views the file from their phone, he/she will see the latest version of that document.

Bigger Mailbox & Scalable Solutions
Microsoft offers scalable, secure online solutions. Get more out of your Office 365 experience with features like a 50 GB mailbox that accommodates attachments up to 25 MB. You no longer have to be reminded to cleanup your inbox! You also get capability for calendaring, contacts, online meetings, instant messaging, document collaboration and more. You can take advantage of these easy-to-use solutions and advanced features at a small-business price.

Affordable & Flexible Pay
Office 365 has a flexible monthly billing process that lets you add or decrease the number of users to work with your business. You don’t have to be locked into a contract, and you have the ability to change plans at any time. These pay-as-you-go pricing options give you predictability and flexibility for your growing business. Office 365 also offers great flexibility by allowing you to easily provide users with only the services they need, cost-effectively adding value to your business.
