If you’re thinking about migrating your organization’s productivity platform to the cloud, there’s no better option in today’s marketplace than Office 365. In this post, we’ll explore a few of the benefits that businesses are enjoying by transitioning to Office 365, so you can decide if the platform may be a good fit for your team’s needs.
Although developed and hosted by Microsoft, Office 365 is compatible with any of the devices your team already uses. That includes PC, Mac, iOS, and Android devices. No matter which devices they prefer using, your team will be able to create, edit, and share critical documents and data in real time. At the same time, because you don’t have to download anything, they’ll be able to access files from any device with a network connection.
A Professional Toolkit
Office 365 empowers the Microsoft productivity applications your team likely already uses, including Word, PowerPoint, Outlook, and Excel, with cloud capabilities. By integrating these productivity tools with the latest collaboration features, such as team chat and video conferencing, you can give your team a professional toolkit to prepare for the challenges of tomorrow. With robust Office 365 functionality, every member of your team will be able to prioritize collaboration with co-workers while taking client engagement to the next level.
If your organization has struggled with tracking document revisions and versions in the past, Office 365 makes it easy to keep everyone on the same page. Because files are stored and shared online, your team can share them with anyone and set specific permissions for document editing and viewing. Any changes made to documents are updated in real time, so you don’t have to worry about employees working with outdated or inaccurate information.
If the thought of the downtime that comes with transitioning to a new technology platform has prevented you from making an upgrade, the migration tools offered by Office 365 give you a reason to rethink that. Microsoft makes it easy to transition your existing servers and devices to the Office 365 platform and minimize downtime. Depending on the scale of your operation, your team can migrate services to Office 365 in a matter of days.
Office 365 gives you a centralized, intuitive admin center to manage all your services from one place. That means you can quickly scale your services as your organization’s needs evolve. Because Microsoft oversees updates and upgrades, you take a hands-off approach with the confidence that your services remain up-to-date while maximizing performance.
