Top 10 Benefits of Microsoft Office 365
High Tech is a Microsoft-certified provider of Office 365.
If you haven't upgraded to Microsoft Office 365 yet, here are ten good reasons why you might want to make the switch.
1) Accessibility — Anytime, Anywhere Access
Office 365 lives in the cloud. That means you have access to Word, Excel, Outlook, and other Microsoft Office tools from anywhere you can get a Web connection, and from virtually any device --Windows or Mac desktops and laptops, Android devices, iPhones, iPads, and other smartphones and tablets.
2) Seamless Coordination with the Tools You Already Know
Office 365 works seamlessly with the programs you already know and use, including Outlook, Word, Excel, OneNote, Publisher and PowerPoint. These tools provide the same great features you rely on as well as powerful capabilities in Office 365.
3) Easily Communicate and Collaborate Inside and Outside Your Organization
With Office 365, you can create a password-protected portal to share large, hard-to-email files both inside and outside of your organization, giving you a single location to find the latest versions of files or documents, no matter how many people are working on them. Send instant messages to colleagues and customers and invite them to participate in online meetings where you can review documents or take control of a desktop.
4) Email, Collaboration, and Online Meeting Solutions
Microsoft has years of experience delivering scalable, secure online solutions. Enhance your Office experience with Office 365 features like a 50-gigabyte (GB) mailbox that accommodates attachments up to 25 megabytes (MB), calendaring, contacts, online meetings, instant messaging, document collaboration and more. With Office 365, you can take advantage of these easy-to-use solutions and advanced features at a small-business price.
5) Safety and Security
Security is priority at Microsoft data centers. With Office 365, you can use the same systems used by Microsoft and other enterprises worldwide to help protect email, documents, and networks. These systems scan your messages and documents for spam and malicious software (also called malware) 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Microsoft data centers help safeguard your data and are certified to meet multiple industry-standard certifications.
6) 99.9% Financially-Backed Uptime Guarantee
7) Professional Face for Your Business
Using professional services like Office 365 tells potential customers that you’re serious about business. With these state-of-the-art but easy-to-use collaboration, mail, and messaging services, you can set yourself apart from organizations that use free or ad-supported services. A custom domain name further enhances your branding, and Office 365 includes design tools to easily create a professional, public-facing website in minutes.
Monthly subscriptions for Office 365 plans are very attractively priced.
9) Flexibility for Your Business
With Office 365, you get pay-as-you-go pricing options that give you predictability and flexibility for your business. Office 365 also offers great flexibility by allowing you to easily provide users with only the services they need, cost-effectively adding value to your business.
10) Cost Effective Administration by High Tech, your Cloud Solutions Provider (CSP)
Office 365 administration is designed for organizations to easily set up and administer the service on their own. However, as an alternative, you can leave administration and the management of your Microsoft Office 365 licenses to High Tech, allowing you and your staff to focus on your core business.
