How Your Business Can Benefit From Office 365

“I’ve got to run back to the office and get that file.”

“Let me call the office and get them to make a copy of that.”

“When I get back to the office, I’ll check my calendar.”

Those are all things are things you won’t ever say again when your business takes the plunge to experience the benefits of Office 365. Hosted by Microsoft, Office 365 is a cloud-based subscription service that offers your small business many benefits that will help you run more efficiently.

By using Microsoft Office 365, all the Microsoft programs currently active in your office are available to you even when you’re not in the office. Taking care of day-to-day operations no longer means sitting behind your desk in order to fully function. All the conveniences of Word, Outlook, PowerPoint, OneNote, Access, Excel and other Microsoft programs are now available almost anywhere, anytime. Here are some additional benefits Office 365 provides:

Mobile Access Through Office 365

Use your favorite applications on the go. With Office 365 you have access to your documents through SharePoint Online and other applications. You can also share those files among staff to keep everybody in the loop. Clients can also share information or exchange important documents with business partners through mobile app file sharing. Efficiency and productivity perfectly merge in this aspect of Office 365.

Office 365 Provides Greater Flexibility

Meeting and greeting clients and prospecting new ones won’t jeopardize your relationship with existing clients because you aren’t sitting by the phone or the computer waiting to accommodate their needs. The instant messaging feature lets you stay in touch with your office and access your calendar with only one click. No more lugging around that three-ring binder with randomly attached sticky notes for appointment reminders. Answer emails on the go and respond to clients promptly to manage your productivity all day long.

Premier Privacy With Office 365

Built in anti-malware and spam protection helps keep your information safe from unauthorized users. Microsoft does not scan any of your information, so no worries about using any of your documents or emails for advertising purposes. No threat of viruses invading your email and damaging your files because everything is screened before reaching your inbox. No equipment failure or update worries either. Microsoft’s premier data centers are highly reliable.

These are just a few of the benefits your business will receive from Office 365. The exact services you have access to will depend on which plan you select, but they all offer a great sense of freedom to run your business in a more professional and efficient manner.
