Reasons to move to Office 365
As Take That once sang “Everything Changes” just look at music. We shifted from Vinyl to Tape, Tape to Minidisc, Minidisc to CD, CD to MP3 and so forth. The world of software is no different, and most software and gaming vendors look to utilise the cloud. This allows them to reduce costs associated with packaging and transport which delivers a much better business model.
Microsoft are no different and have been actively driving people from the old box versions of Office, to the new and shinier cloud based “Office 365” and here are some reasons why it makes sense for you to move.
- No complicated upgrades or outdated products.
Every product has a lifecycle, often designed to encourage re-investment in the latest version. We have seen Office 97, 2000, XP, 2003 all of which were different and could cause problems in companies if people were running differing versions. With 365 all of your staff run the same version and benefit from the latest version.
- 2. Reducing the risks to your business.
Having a cloud based product rather than something in your workplace, minimizes the risk of data loss and affords a level of business continuity should you, office or surrounding area suffer a disaster such as flood or fire. Whilst we hope you never have a disaster you can sleep safe knowing you can continue to work and communicate.
- 3. Work on the go.
Being a cloud based product, means you can access the office suite from anywhere at any time and on pretty much any device so long as you have a connection to the internet. Making the morning Latte productive.
- 4. Syncing with your mobile devices.
All of your files, calendar and contacts are seamlessly synced and updated across all of your devices.
- 5. Be secure and protect your business.
Secure your data by having the ability to remotely wipe data from your devices.
- 6. Bigger is better.
Gone are the days of worrying about your mailbox being full, Office 365 delivers you a whopping 50GB mailbox size.
- 7. Getting rid of the worry.
As Microsoft run the hardware that powers the software, you don’t need to invest in servers or technology. Also as Microsoft automatically update the software. You don’t even have to spend any time manually updating everyone’s machine.
- 8. A better cost option for business.
As a 365 is a subscription service, there is no upfront cost. You simply pay for the users you need allowing you to scale up or down as required. This means no upfront Capex investment making good business sense.
