Stay connected whilst away from the Office

office365_2013Being away on holiday for the small business owner can be a bit of a worry, being out of touch with what is happening back home. The solution to the problem is to stay connected using Office 365. You may already have heard about Microsoft Office 365 by now but here’s a summary:

  • Email – fully function exchange server allowing synchronisation to your Outlook, including calendars, tasks, and contacts
  • Office Online – the ability to use Office programs through the web
  • Full, installed Office applications:
    Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Access, Publisher, and OneNote on up to 5 PCs or Macs
  • Office for tablets and phones:
    for the full, installed Office experience on up to 5 tablets and 5 phones
  • Video conferencing
  • Sharing files through SharePoint
  • Storing individual files using OneDrive

With all this there’s every opportunity to take a break but still keep in touch. What about when out on the road, away from the office? It’s designed for that too. In use all that’s required is a suitable device and an internet connection. Still not convinced, here’ some benefits:

  1. There’s no upfront cost* and as your business grows you can increase the number of users. If your business decreases, you can decrease the number of users.
    *Annual commitment needed for the first 12 months then recurring monthly cost thereafter.
  2. Access Office 365 on your iPad, iPhone, Windows phone. You can install and work on your device the same as your PC.
  3. Connect from anywhere.
  4. E-mail, calendar, contacts all work together flawlessly- update a contact on your mobile and it will update across all your synced devices automatically.
  5. For security, remotely wipe data from your devices if needed.
  6. Get rid of servers and upgrade fees and offload to Microsoft. With Office 365 all updates are automatically carried out by Microsoft, saving you time and money.
  7. Putting your e-mail and documents in the cloud instead of on premise will prevent your whole business going down in the event of power outages, floods, fires etc.
  8. SharePoint, Skype for Business and OneDrive for Business to help your business even more efficiently.
  9. No more licensing upgrade issues, 2007, 2010, 2013 – There was always an upgrade cycle. Office 365 includes all licensing and can deploy company wide so that everyone has the same version of Microsoft Office!
