Many small businesses are able to reduce complexity by moving some of their in-house solutions to Microsoft Office 365. We can help!
As a Microsoft Silver Small and Midmarket Cloud Solutions partner, Axcell can assist you with implementation and migration to Microsoft Office 365. We can help you evaluate if Office 365 is the right solution for your company and if so, make the transition seamless.
Some Key Office 365 advantages:
One of the biggest advantages of Office 365 is the ability to work from anywhere as long as you have an internet connection. Because it’s entirely cloud-based, you can access your email, files and Office programs (Word, PowerPoint, Excel) from any location and any device. If you have a plan that includes desktop version of Office, they can be installed on up to 5 devices per user.
Collaborate more easily
If working in teams is at all a part of your company, you’ll appreciate the collaboration features of Office 365.
Always Have Access to the Latest Versions of Programs
With Office 365, you’ll also have access to the latest versions of Office at no additional charge. You’ll get the latest and greatest features without having to uninstall and reinstall Office on everyone’s machines. In addition, Microsoft is constantly making upgrades to features across programs – you’ll get access to those, too. Check the Office Blog to get an idea of what kind of upgrades you get with an Office 365 plan.
Mix and Match Plans
There are several different Office 365 business plans available with different programs and features. Not everyone in your company is going to need the exact same thing.
One of the biggest misconceptions about the Cloud is that it’s not safe. In reality, it isn’t necessarily any more or less safe than an on-premise system. It’s all in how you use it and what security measures you put in place. Office 365 has a lot of built-in security features to keep your company’s data safe. Some of our favorites include:
- Encrypted email: This keeps anyone other than the intended recipient from reading your email
- Data Loss Prevention: This is a set of policies that checks and prevents sensitive information (like social security numbers) from leaving your organization via email. We’ve broken it down a little more in this post.
- Mobile Device Management: These features allow you to control Office on your employees phones to protect company information. If an employee’s phone is lost or stolen, it can be remotely wiped to prevent anyone who shouldn’t have access from getting to company data.
- Advanced Threat Analytics (ATA): ATA uses analytics and machine learning to detect and alert you to suspicious behavior on your network. Our favorite part of this? It will scan emails as they come into your network for malicious links and attachments and if it detects something fishy, it’ll prevent the malicious attachment from getting in. Your employees will still get the email, but will get a message explaining why the attachment isn’t there. This can go a long way to preventing a data breach due to human error.
