If you’re in business, you’ve probably heard of Microsoft Office 365. So many businesses use the Office applications like Outlook, Word, Excel and PowerPoint to manage their data and communications. So, what’s the difference between Microsoft Office and Office 365? And why should you get it?
Office 365 Basics
Office 365 combines the Microsoft Office apps with various tools for businesses including business-class email, instant messaging for business, video conferencing, huge amounts of cloud storage, plus support from the Office 365 Business Centre.
The main feature of Office 365 is the ability to access your Office applications and files wherever you are, on a range of devices including tablets and smartphones. Office 365 management software can be tailored to provide as many or as few users as you require for your business. This allows you to work from home, from a client’s office, or even on the train as long as you have internet connectivity. This is one of the most popular benefits of Office 365, as it creates opportunities and removes barriers to effective working.
Easy To Migrate
Office 365 migration is generally very simple indeed. If you’re already using Microsoft applications like Excel and other Office programs, all your work can be simply moved onto the cloud once your Office 365 account is created. The ability to use tools such as SharePoint gives businesses the added advantage of being able to select what data is accessible by which users, which can help whilst going through the process of migrating from other systems to Office 365.
Even exchange email migration is simple and uses a standard “wizard” with a set of very easy instructions to follow. If you have any concerns about switching from your current system to Office 365, get in contact as we can assist you every step of the way.
