Is Office 365 something you keep hearing about, but are reluctant to try? Well, every day that goes by without it, you are risking your business’ security, efficiency, and budget. The times have changed, and Office 365 is here to make your life easier. While there are a lot of reasons to have Office 365 for your business, here are our top 5:
1. Stay Up and Running
Does your in-house system have a back-up in case it crashes? What about if it floods or your building catches on fire? If something disastrous happens (which it can and it does, take it from those who have been through it!) you don’t want to be without data, servers, or a website. In 2015, the Small Business Association reported that 25% of small businesses don’t reopen after a major disaster. If your data, documents, applications, and emails are all in the cloud, you don’t have to worry about damages to hardware. You’ll always stay up and running.
2. Secure System
Worrying about data security becomes a thing of the past with Office 365. With built in security, Office 365 makes your data secure and always lets you control who has access. Even if you lose your phone, you’re able to wipe all data off the device. Storing in the cloud has never been so safe.
3. Stay Organized and Share More
Time management and working well with coworkers are crucial to any business. Office 365 makes work easy to manage with the ability to synchronize your emails, calendar, and contacts across all devices. It also provides an easy way to share with other employees. Save a file on your PC, and email it to your coworker from your phone on your way to the next meeting.
4. Predictable Payment
Office 365 takes the guessing out of pricing. There are no upfront costs and there is no contract you have to sign. You can adjust the number of users to your monthly cost whenever you want with ease. Having no upfront costs is a bonus for businesses just starting out, making it easier to fit within your budget.
5. Up to Date—Always
Avoid the licensing mess! Is one employee on a different version than another? Not anymore! Office 365 includes all licensing and it can be deployed company wide. This means everyone has the same version of Microsoft Office, and all users will get upgrades at the same time. Keep everyone up to date so that they’re all working on the same version with Office 365.
