Imagine an all-in-one suite you can use from anywhere that boosts your productivity without worrying about data security. Sound ideal? What if these were just some of the features of Microsoft 365 (MO365) because this latest iteration of Office 365, the world’s most popular business collaboration platform, offers so much more? Microsoft 365 is a cloud-based subscription based solution that helps your business become more productive, scalable and agile.
Recognising that digital transformation has changed the world at work, Microsoft has created a digital collaboration hub where all employees can meet, share, and be on the same page.
From web and mobile versions of Office apps to tools for building and managing your business, MO365 can help your business and your employees, whether you work in an office or on the go.
Why invest in Microsoft 365?
Surveys of corporate leaders show that driving digital transformation is at the top of their agenda now. One of the priorities for this new operational reality is aligning digital transformation (DT) investments with your business goals. Microsoft 365 is the primary and most essential investment in technology that a business should make to become more effective, flexible and productive. Microsoft 365 is the most popular first step to a successful digital transformation journey. Let us introduce the top reasons to invest in digital growth through a complete platform.
1- A Cost-efficient solution
Microsoft 365 can be paid for on a subscription basis per user/month. The final cost will depend on the plan you choose for your business - matching your business size, requirements, and the number of users - so you only pay for exactly what your business needs. Additionally, because Microsoft 365 is a cloud-based service, your business will not incur the costs of on-site maintenance, physical infrastructure, and upgrades. Plus, by improving user productivity, you can save time and money to focus on what you do best.
2- Microsoft 365 encourages collaboration:
One of the prerequisites for creating a secure collaborative workspace is having the right technology in place. With Microsoft 365, you can manage accessibility and information sharing in a whole new way. You can now store and share information like contacts, files, apps, etc. in one place with shared mailboxes. But sharing does not stop at mailboxes. You can intuitively share information across applications. Collaboration also means effective communication; which Microsoft 365 takes to the next level through Microsoft Teams and Outlook. What's more, your team can network and benefit from the centralized collaboration that MO365 offers, as team members can collaborate on Office files like Word, Excel, and PowerPoint simultaneously. Last but not least, you do not have to waste time installing updates because Microsoft 365 offers automatic upgrades, including a constant flow of new features.
3- Tailor-made scalability for your business
As a fully decentralised solution with a comprehensive set of applications, Microsoft 365 is the optimal solution to achieve scalability. As your business grows, you can scale it accordingly by integrating the appropriate apps and features based on your business needs and goals. In addition, the all-in-one suite allows you to create customised solutions for each department or even for each individual employee.
4- Security for your company and your clients’ data
Moving to the cloud means you should invest in keeping your data safe - both your company's valuable files and your customers' personal information. Microsoft 365 offers built-in features that ensure secure access across your business, such as multi-factor authentication. Unauthorised access is also prevented with threat detection and malware mitigation tools. In addition, there are cutting-edge security practices with five layers of security and proactive monitoring. Last but not least, one of the most important elements for a business are up-time and reliability. Microsoft 365 opens the door to business continuity even when your devices go down.
5- Remote access and mobile productivity
The fact that Microsoft 365 is cloud-based means you can be productive from anywhere, whether you are working on-site or remotely. In today's mobile work environment, Microsoft 365 offers the ability to work from anywhere and stay connected virtually all the time. So if you have not made the move to the cloud yet, now is the time to make the most of its capabilities.
6- Enhanced email features
From hosting email with unprecedented storage capacity - 50GB mailbox for each user - to using your own custom domain name (email@example.com), Microsoft 365 has improved the effectiveness of online communications for your business. Features include setting up new user emails, recovering deleted accounts, and creating custom scripts from anywhere. Microsoft Outlook is also fully integrated with Dynamics ERP and other productivity tools to add more efficiencies to your everyday business.
