For your business to thrive and maintain consistency, you need to be able to work productively from anywhere. Are you able to collaborate remotely, easily set up and attend conference calls and safely save your documents on the go? Or are you losing valuable time working on disparate systems and seeking out resources?
If you follow in the latter category, you need to find a comprehensive productivity solution. Enter Microsoft Office 365.
Microsoft provides modern, cutting-edge solutions for businesses of all sizes, delivering smart tools that enable people working in all kinds of fields and environments to be more productive and collaborate from almost any location. That suite of tools is available to you today via Microsoft Office 365. Let’s explore it.
If there’s one word to describe Office 365 accurately, it’s ‘comprehensive.’ It combines a variety of apps into a fully integrated experience. Office 365 offers the Microsoft products you know and love, such as Word, Outlook, Excel and PowerPoint, but it also includes other key business apps such as Teams, shared site, storage with OneDrive, MileIQ, Planner and more.
All tiers of Office 365, including Online Essentials, Business Premium and Business Premium Plus, come with an unprecedented one terabyte of cloud storage and file sharing via One Drive for Business.
No matter which productivity solution you choose, you’ll be able to easily share, collaborate and edit your Office files on any device, from any location. This capability is invaluable for teams working in all kinds of verticals, whether in-office or remote. Savings of even a few minutes (the difference, say, between waiting on a teammate to remember to send you a file and having instant access to it in the cloud) add up over time, making your organization substantially more efficient.
From easy-to-use shared calendaring, file sharing and instant messaging, to business email and video conferencing, Office 365 has you covered when it comes to productivity and collaboration tools. But beyond the list of well-known applications and the expanded capabilities it offers your organization, there are several factors that set it apart.
Let’s say you buy a car. It serves you well for a few years, but after seeing some of the capabilities and features of the newer models, you decide it might be time for an upgrade. Then, as you’re leaving for work one morning, you find a brand-new car in your driveway with a note from the dealer saying your car has been upgraded for free.
That situation is analogous to the value offered by Office 365. Because it’s a cloud-based service, your applications will be upgraded automatically. Rather than paying for the new version of your Office applications, you’ll be able to use the latest versions at all times, without paying an extra dime.
Office 365 features threat-protection technologies to defend against spam, phishing attacks, malware and viruses, giving you complete peace of mind. Enjoy protection across all of your devices, including two-factor authentication for an added layer of security.
Information is one of your organization’s most valuable resources. Office 365 protects that resource with OneDrive, which backs up your files in real time and enables you to recover all of your OneDrive files for up to 30 days. And, with OneDrive Personal Vault, you can use a PIN, facial recognition or your fingerprint to further secure your files.
Office 365 lets you fully control access to files, so they can only be seen by authorized users. You can easily manage user identities and control access to sensitive information while making sure it isn’t shared with the wrong parties. Simply put, when using Office 365, you can be confident that your information is secure and that you have total access control.
No two people are exactly alike, and the same goes for businesses. One-size-fits-all rarely fits anyone. Fortunately, Office 365 is available in three distinct packages, so you can easily find one that matches your particular needs.
Office 365 Online Essentials offers cost-saving value on familiar Office online tools. It’s the perfect choice when you need professional email and a few essential Office apps to help you run your business.
Office 365 Business Premium is a great option when you want all Office apps, continually updated, along with core cloud services. Think of this as the “Goldilocks option” that’s just right for most organizations.
Office 365 Business Premium Plus includes all premium package features, as well as additional security through advanced email encryption. It also includes email and data archiving, which, depending on your industry and organizational requirements, may be an indispensable feature.
The most important feature Microsoft Office 365 offers is one you define. Simply put, it’s whatever makes your life easier and more productive.
Maybe you are tired of dealing with the hassle of offline storage and file transfers. Perhaps your email setup isn’t up to par. Whatever the case may be, you’ll find that Office 365 has the solutions you’re looking for to make things simpler for you and your business. And, with award-winning support from the Network Solutions team, you’ll find that using it is even easier than choosing a convenient package for your organization.
While Microsoft and Network Solutions are proud to offer a comprehensive, affordable and integrated experience that reimagines productivity today. As for tomorrow? Where you go with Office 365 is entirely up to you. With the trusted tools you need always available and continually updated through the cloud, the sky’s the limit for your business.
