Office 365 Advantages
Traditional email for business requires the purchase of an email server or email hosting. If you host your own email server you will now be responsible for any updates, all backups, legal compliance and to ensure that it is secure from hackers.
Microsoft cloud email (Hosted Exchange) moves the email to servers in multiple secured datacenters. This makes Microsoft responsible for managing support inquiries. They also help lock down and comply with your industries regulations.
They will ensure all updates are completed properly and commit to keeping your email application available at a minimum 99.997% of the time.
Microsoft Office 365 is powerful software that over 60 million commercial customers depend on. With 50,000 small business customers migrating to Office 365 each month this is a product you just can’t ignore! It includes various apps like Word, Power point, Excel, Outlook, OneDrive, etc.
There are so many apps for business purposes that I won’t be able to cover all of them here. But I will say Office 365 enhances your businesses productivity by providing these cloud based services to a wide variety of platforms like the web (Internet Explorer, Edge, Google Chrome, Firefox etc.), Apple and Android devices, Windows desktops and lot more.
Office365 offers great ways to edit and modify documents, spreadsheets, presentations, locally or through an internet connection. These documents can be saved online by using OneDrive (Microsoft’s cloud service which provides 1TB of Cloud Storage) and can be accessed from anywhere you have a supported device and an active internet connection. Office365 web-based email with a familiar Outlook web app also comes with your subscription and provides anywhere access to email, contacts, tasks, and calendaring services using a supported web browser and internet access.
