Office 365 has powerful features and benefits for businesses. Whether you’re a small business or mid-sized enterprise, Office 365 is a powerful tool that can help streamline your organization’s workflow, improve productivity, and reduce costs. It possesses Microsoft’s robust security capabilities which enhances internal communications experience.
To realize its full potential for a business, Office 365 can’t be merely installed where magic right away happens. With so many moving parts, it’s critical to work with a phenomenal local IT Support firm (ehmm… like Troinet) that is Microsoft-certified.
At Troinet, we maintain our certification as a Certified Microsoft Silver Partner in order to help businesses be more productive and profitable.
1. Mobility and flexibility
A sudden lock-down or natural disaster will ‘force’ your workforce to bring the company files at home. If your data is not uploaded to a secure and remote cloud like Office 365, you will have a hard time achieving business continuity. Office 365 gives you access to all of your business contacts and data. It allows your employees to work virtually from anywhere. As a result, productivity and collaboration between employees increases. Video conferencing and messaging features of Office 365 also helps employees stay in touch.
2. Robust security
Office 365 offers robust and Microsoft-backed security solutions for both cloud and device-stored data. It has the added benefit of the Exchange Online Protection (EOP) service which filters emails and helps you protect your company from spam, malware and phishing attacks. Additionally, Microsoft offers Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) solution that serves as both online and on-premise infrastructure. ATP uses advanced machine learning algorithms to analyze billions of events every day to detect malicious email campaigns and senders.
3. Little learning curve
Microsoft has established a familiar interface that is the same on many platforms for decades. The familiarity helps you to work quickly and productively. If you have used a previous version of Microsoft Office before, then Office 365 will have a very little learning curve. No need for training or an intensive one. Working with one will be very easy for your company.
4. Easier and efficient collaboration
With Office 365, your office applications and documents can be accessed by your team from any device at any time. You can easily connect with team, share documents and permit more than one user to edit and view projects in real time. This Microsoft product is always current and gets updates on its Web-based platform, so you’ll always be working with the most recent features and aren’t burdened with software updates. Office 365 is a worthwhile business investment.
5. Comes with essential collaboration tools
6. Assign varying team access via "Groups" feature
A very handy tool on Office 365 is the My Team groups feature. Groups allows you to arrange communications with employees that are working together on a specific project. Groups lets you organize files in one location so that users can all view, share and edit them. Everyone may be connected with calendar invitations so no one is left out of the loop about upcoming meetings or deadlines. If you don’t want to use the phone, there is the Conversations tool that lets group members have meetings when they are in different places.
7. Designed according to modern users
8. On-cloud but secure
Naturally, the open nature of Office 365, as well as Google and Apple products, raises both concerns and eyebrows for IT security. The cloud alone makes many hesitate. Microsoft has wisely not gone too far down the road of total freedom for users, but it has managed to make a more user-friendly experience without sacrificing much-needed security safeguards. As the system has continued to evolve, Microsoft has reached new heights of security, including HIPAA protocols. How? By allowing security experts in businesses to control the exposure of individual devices rather than individuals. This means that users won’t feel the same kinds of restrictions placed on them as they have in the past, improving the long-term experience.
