The Benefits of Office 365 - To The Cloud!!
The cloud is a buzz word that’s being passed around just about every IT department in the world right now. The Office 365 package is completely hosted on the cloud which gives the company a range of options. Small and large businesses alike are able to choose which parts of the program they want to use, which allows them create a very specific work environment for their employees.
Every business is different, and software should be able to conform to the needs of the consumers who use it. Office 365 is highly versatile in that business owners can add and remove people to the license as needed, all online with just a few clicks. In addition to easily adding users, the software is intuitive and runs on the same model as the rest of the products in the Microsoft family, so there’s training time needed for new users.
Collaboration is a big part of every company since it has become imperative that companies have the ability to retain, share and access as much information as possible. Here are three reasons you should be using Office 365:
- Always On - Office 365 is truly a cloud based program that allows you to check your email securely, from anywhere. It is a great upgrade for small and mid-sized businesses that have tried to operate and maintain their own on-site server that is dependent on their own power, their own Internet connection, and their own system administrators. While such a set up might save money in the short term,
the advantage of outsourcing your server becomes clear in the long run.
- Return on Investment - Over a three to five year period, it is very likely that a server that is kept on-site will fail, lose power or connectivity for an extended period of time, leaving you with no way of accessing the email you need in order to do business. Incoming messages will bounce back to senders, which not only looks unprofessional, it could cause your business to miss critical business communications. The monthly subscription based model also allows companies to save money by moving from large capital expenditures to smaller operational expenditures.
- Security and Stability - By using Office 365, you get all of the functionality that hosting your own server provides, but with the benefits of added security and stability. Rather than devoting valuable time and resources to maintaining a system that may cause trouble, invest in the peace of mind that Office 365 and cloud computing provides. With everything hosted in the cloud, you can access anything you need anywhere, any time and avoid any costly service interruptions.
Office 365 gives you the overall satisfaction of knowing that the operational lifeblood of your business—The collaboration of information — won’t go down. It is reliable, easy to use, and great for business.
