At first blush, Office 365 may seem like a bridge too far. But for many companies, investing in licenses results in massive benefits for your employees and your bottom line. Below, we’ve listed a few benefits:
- Pay For What You Need, And Get a Lot
One of the benefits of using a cloud-based solution like Office 365 versus purchasing a stack is taking advantage of new features and functionality. Microsoft is often building new solutions and applications that benefit your business, and often they come standard with your license purchase. And because you’re buying based on the number of licenses, you’re only paying for what you need.
- Reduce Your Infrastructure Costs
Server rooms are quickly becoming a thing of the past, thanks to the influx of cloud computing services. With an Office 365 subscription, you’re not only getting the suite of Microsoft productivity programs (often much more expensive to purchase individually), but also email services, active directory, Skype, and, with the add-on, Microsoft SharePoint.
- Get Rid of that Shared Drive and Upgrade to a Smarter Solution
Many older companies still leverage an old-fashioned shared drive. If you’ve got documents from 1997 hanging out on your file share, it’s time to upgrade. Many of the top complaints about shared drives, the storage limits, the inability to find anything, and the lack of remote connectivity, are solved with the move to OneDrive or SharePoint.
- Unified Communications Without the Hassle
At one time, video communications seemed to be a feature only the large businesses could afford. Now, with the inclusion of Skype, getting a screen share going is as easy as clicking a button and having an internet connection. With Office 365, you can ditch your video teleconference line and expensive cameras.
- Integrated Solutions Across the Board
With Office 365, you can create a document in Word, save it to OneDrive, then email the link to your team. Even better, save the document to SharePoint and engage in multi-person collaboration over a Skype session. With everything running on the same platform, it just works.
- Access Your Data Anywhere
Murphy’s Law states that the day of a big presentation, your kid will get sick. With Office 365, there’s nothing to worry about. You can access your data from home—even on a personal computer—and conduct the meeting from your home office.
- Remain Compliant and Secure
For many organizations, compliance with state and federal regulations is the underpinning of all their financial decisions. Office 365 is compliant with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and other federal regulations around privacy and security.
- Ready 24/7 Around the Globe
With a 99.9% uptime and mobile access, Office 365 will be there when you need it, where you need it.
- Maximize Customer Engagement
Unstructured data helps no one. With Microsoft’s powerful document management solutions SharePoint integrated with OneNote, you can keep track of documents, notes, and ideas around clients and customers.
- Happy Employees, Happy Management, Better Productivity
The biggest benefit organizations will see from migrating to Office 365 is increased productivity from your employees. Without having to worry about version control, sharing large files, or fighting with email spam filters, your employees will be able to do the real work to keep your business moving.
