Office 365 includes all the familiar Microsoft apps you’ve come to depend on like Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook now hosted in the cloud to enable better communication and productivity. Office 365 is the most popular productivity suite for business, twice as popular as Google’s G Suite and found in 43% of enterprises.
Office 365 brings several key benefits that make it the most popular choice for business. These key benefits include.
The Ability to Work From Anywhere
With Office 365, users can work from anywhere, from any device as long as they have an Internet connection. Since it is entirely cloud-based, users can access email, files, and all Office programs from anywhere enabling true remote work.
Enhanced Communication and Collaboration
One of the greatest benefits to Office 365 is the enhanced communication and collaboration that the suite offers. With Office 365, users can work remotely but still be connected to their teams through voice and video calling and chat through Microsoft Teams. Additionally, with Office 365, users can facilitate file sharing via the cloud and make edit documents in real-time. No more mismatched versions of documents or sharing documents over email.
Robust Security and Reliability
Microsoft takes on all the responsibility for the security and reliability of their platform. They store all of the data in the cloud, eliminating the cost of purchasing expensive hardware, and the cloud has better disaster recovery and backup systems in place. Microsoft also has additional security features built-in including encrypted email, data loss prevention, mobile device management, and advanced threat analytics.
Office 365 utilizes a subscription-based service. Instead of paying a large sum upfront, Microsoft allows companies to pay a lower monthly fee based on user. This also allows companies a larger form of scalability if organizations need to scale up and scale down based on user count.
There is no need to pay to upgrade to the latest versions of anything. With Office 365, the latest versions of apps are available as part of the subscription. Every user has full access to the latest updates in real-time.
