Need to work from home? Stay connected and productive with Office 365
15 March 2020
Need your staff to work from home? But how can you all stay connected?
With the day-to-day news that we are receiving with regards to the Coronavirus, working from home is increasingly the norm, but how can you as a business owner, with staff, manage this?
We've mentioned Office 365 in our previous emails and you may remember the enhanced email benefits it brings, however in this current working environment it seems a good time to remind you about what else it can do for you and your business.
Stay connected and stay productive with Office 365
Email aside, another great attribute of Office 365 is the ability for individuals to collaborate and share files, documents (ie Word, Excel etc), calendars and more, between one another, in real-time.
This means you can all stay connected and work cohesively even if you're not working in the same office.
You choose the documents to be shared with the relevant staff members, ensuring they are accessed and edited by the right people, keeping you in control.
No servers are needed and there is no expensive software to download or to maintain, which helps to keep costs down, which is especially needed in this current situation.
And you are always on the latest addition which means you don't have to constantly upgrade.
Everything is stored and accessed online, so it can be accessed from anywhere, anytime (as long as you have an internet connection) making home working feasible and productive.
What else do you need to know about Office 365?
You get a huge 1tb of storage for each person, meaning that you won't need to worry about buying extra ram for extra storage capacity.
It can adapt and grow with your business, so as people join and leave your business, they can be easily removed or added to your account.
Improved productivity for everyone no matter where they are based, with a central resource of where everything is stored, so everyone always knows where all the information and documents are accessed.
Mix and match plans to suit each staff members needs, for example, you may want someone to have a premium plan, but a different member of staff may only need an essential plan, and that's ok, meaning you only pay for what you need.
Peace of mind - it's powered by Microsoft.
You get access to all your email folders, contacts, calendars, and files from your existing Microsoft Outlook or web browser, so you know it works. And, as mentioned previously, you get access to all the latest software, so as it's upgraded, you have immediate access to this.
