Since its inception almost a decade ago, Microsoft’s cloud-based Office 365 has helped transform the way organisations work with technology.
Thanks to the integration with cloud-based services, Office 365 has expanded your business’ limits of potential, productivity and cooperability. Migrating to Office 365 also means the tools you continue to use such as Word, Outlook, Excel etc will all carry across so you don’t have new systems to learn, ensuring a seamless transition. Microsoft Teams can also become an invaluable part of your day-to-day business life with the ability to chat directly to coworkers, set up meetings, and create channels to organise communications.
With working from home becoming more prominent in the post-Covid world, Office 365 will allow you to work anywhere, anytime, without the reliance on your office’s IT infrastructure, offering a big advantage if your business offers flexible working arrangements. Office 365 is also scalable and as your business grows adding licenses for your new starters is as simple as a few clicks of your mouse, only paying for what your business will need, rather than the large upfront costs of setting up an office using older Microsoft products.
If your business is still using old unsupported versions of Microsoft Office that don’t receive security updates, your organisation is vulnerable to many types of cyber threats. With Office 365, Microsoft provides the best security protocols of any cloud-based application suite to protect your data.
Migration from an on-premise IT environment to using Office 365 can seem like a daunting task for many businesses who want to be assured it will be able to provide the same level of service.
However, with a skilled Managed Service Provider doing it for you, the migration to Office 365 will mean an optimization of your infrastructure without completely overhauling all the IT equipment you already have.
