Reasons Your Business Should be Using Office 365
When running a successful business, efficiency is key. You want to have all the tools at your fingertips in order to have an effective and profitable organization. Office 365 is equipped with a number of them that make doing any job much easier. With tools such as Word, Excel, SharePoint, Exchange, and Teams, it covers a lot of areas that will increase productivity. Office 365 is a must-have for any business and we’ll tell you why.
We Love Security
When it comes to security, they have our vote. Office 365 has strong security measures in place for your business to operate without any concerns. They have two-factor authentication which is basically a double wall to get through before anyone can access files on your computer if they happen to get on it. They also have things like anti-malware and quick threat detection that pinpoints an issue immediately and stops it. This is perfect for those businesses that deal with confidential data.
Let’s Talk About It
The communication features of Office 365 have quite a range. First one, Skype for Business is a tool that allows you to host conference calls and meetings with your personnel or even 3rd party partners regardless of where you both are at. Time difference and distance means nothing as this is a viable option to communicate or collaborate whenever it’s best for both parties. Next we have Teamwork, which is an instant-messaging system that allows edits to documents and file uploads. This is great for a business that has projects where several levels of revisions are made before a final is complete. Another feature is called Yammer. This is similar to a concept of social media for your business, but internally. As an additional form of communication, it allows messaging between coworkers, notification capabilities to staff for any news or updates, and a news feed that’s easy to maneuver. The way that you can instantaneously and constantly be in contact with your employees, bosses, and other companies, is something that is irreplaceable to a business.
Office 365 provides a cloud-based filing system. With this, you can give your business the means to access files on any device, from any location as long as there is an internet connection. How this can benefit your business, especially during these times right now, is that a lot of people are working from home and mobile working is essential. It also allows for safe storage for this data that is constantly being backed up and also has a recovery feature. Being able to have that kind of accessibility is invaluable.
Last but not least, Office 365 sets the bar high when it comes to collaboration. They have an unmatched ability to share calendars, contacts, mailboxes, and more. You can instantly see who is currently available in order to schedule meetings at a time that works for everyone. Multiple people can access one mailbox so you can be sure that any important emails won’t be missed or overlooked.
