So many businesses are realising the benefits of cloud software that the big question isn’t whether to move to Internet computing – it’s what suite to choose. One of the most popular options is Microsoft’s Office 365, but is it right for you?
Let’s look at the benefits:
With a variety of plans and products, there are 7 different Office 365 packages to choose from. They all cost a monthly fee rather than a large upfront payment. Features include:
- File sharing and storage
- Business email
- HD video conferencing
- Full office installation on PCs and Macs
- Apps for phones and tablets
- Your own corporate social network
- Work management tools
- Tools to create innovative reports and presentations
- Compliance tools.
Some of the packages will allow access to all company software, wherever you are. Others provide a more limited service, but still give you considerable access to base features. It’s great for sales staff and engineers who are constantly on the road, and a blessing for whoever runs the office diary.
Everyone is on the same page
As file sharing is a feature included in all Office 365 plans, your staff will always be looking at the most up-to-date versions of company documents. If one person is editing the document they can book it out to let other people know changes are being made.
You can also set viewing and editing permissions for each document, so you’ll have full control over who can read and who can alter every file.
