With a reported 187,000 businesses in the UK now using Microsoft 365, it’s one of the most adopted business tools of all time.
But why are businesses raving about it?
We’ve outlined the key benefits our IT support clients mention when it comes to Microsoft 365:
- Anytime, anywhere access
With files stored in the cloud, this means your users can access the data they need, on any device, from any location, at any time. This flexibility is absolutely invaluable in today’s ‘always on’ world.
- Improved Communication
Microsoft 365 offers three great tools for communication: good old traditional email with trusty Outlook, but also a new way of having digital conversations with Teams and Yammer. With Teams, you can communicate instantly with instant messaging, share files, co-edit files and nurture cross departmental collaboration. Chats can be one to one or you can set up ‘Channels’ for specific projects where multiple people can join the conversation.
Yammer is an enterprise level social networking service, allowing individuals to post, share and comment on a feed, just like you see with social media platforms like Facebook. It’s great for companies who operate across multiple locations or who might have large numbers of staff.
- Advanced Security
With Microsoft 365, you have peace of mind that you’re operating within a totally secure environment with robust security measures in place. Measures like two factor authentication ensure unauthorised people won’t be able to access your data and files. Threats are identified and immediately stopped by features such as advanced threat detection and anti-malware giving you added reassurance.
- Predictable spend
As a subscription-based service on a paid for per user, per month basis, you have a predictable level of outgoings. This enables your business to budget your IT spend for the year ahead. You also have the flexibility to add or remove users as your business changes meaning you’re never left paying for licenses you don’t need and there’s no limitations on growth. With upgrades included in the cost, you also don’t have any unexpected costs to deal with.
If you’re a not-for-profit organisation, you might also qualify for specific discounted license pricing too.
These benefits make it easy to see why Microsoft 365 is one of the most popular business tools around, with its extensive capabilities in document management, email, collaboration and communication.
This combined with the user-friendly interface and user experience and the level of features on offer, no other platform can rival it.
The Microsoft 365 roadmap is also a very exciting read, with Microsoft pumping huge amounts of resource into constant improvements and innovation into their platform year on year.
So if your business is considering migrating to 365, it will probably be one of the best decisions your business has made.
