What is Microsoft Office 365?  Is it just a subscription-based cloud software system developed by Microsoft in 2011 to make more money from consumers?  No, Microsoft Office 365 much more.  It 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, etc 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.
