Do you feel like you’re constantly tied to your desk? Wouldn’t it be great if you could take your office with you, wherever you go? With Microsoft 365, you can!
The Covid19 pandemic changed many businesses’ working practices. It almost certainly changed yours as well. Companies realised that they didn’t need to be constrained to the office every day, and many staff embraced the freedom and flexibility of home working.
By using the power of Microsoft 365, you can work, connect and collaborate with whoever you need to, whenever you want. You can free your business from the shackles of a physical premises.
With that in mind, here’s our pick of the best Microsoft 365 features that will help you work from anywhere.
Secure online storage
Where are you saving all your Office documents at the moment? If it’s to your own computer then have a think about what would happen if your system crashes, or runs out of storage space. It might be rather stressful! With Microsoft 365 you’ll benefit from a hefty 1TB of secure online storage, known as OneDrive. You can save your files there, safe in the knowledge that they’re secure and backed up, available for you to access at any time, from anywhere.
Online Office apps
You might already be familiar with the typical Office applications like Word, Excel and PowerPoint. With Microsoft 365 you’ll also have online and mobile versions of them, each packed with all the same great features and tools. Create a document on your laptop, store it in your OneDrive storage and then open it using an app on your mobile, or a web browser on a computer. Not only is it more convenient for you, but it also allows you to share the files with people who don’t have the Office applications installed.
HD video conferencing
The days of worrying about traffic while making your way to a meeting are long gone. With the Microsoft Teams feature you can hold face to face video calls in real-time, no matter where you or the other attendees are. One-click screen sharing makes it simple to show the others your screen, for fast and effective exchange of information. It doesn’t matter if no one else has Teams – when you set up the meeting you can create a link that people can use to join via the Microsoft website. Easy peasy!
Have you ever sent a document to someone to review, and they then reply back with a list of their suggestions or feedback? What if you could just send them a link to view the document online, which they could then add their comments to? The SharePoint feature of Microsoft 365 allows you to do just that! You can all work together on the document at the same time, seeing everyone’s changes instantly. No need to laboriously maintain a master copy, as everyone will always be working on the latest version.
Professional business email
No summary of Microsoft 365 would be complete without mention of Exchange Email. Not only will you receive a personalised and professional email address based off your own domain, with a whopping 50GB of storage, but you’ll also benefit from a whole host of business-class features that will increase productivity and save you time. A shareable calendar will make it easy for others to see your busy schedule, and add items to it at will. You’ll be able to access your emails from any device, with anything you send/receive on one being viewable on all the others. Advanced anti-malware and spam protection will keep your mailbox protected from threats, while intuitive disaster recovery tools will allow you to recover deleted emails or restore deleted user accounts.
Last but not least, if your interest is piqued by everything we’ve just discussed, you don’t even need to worry over how you’re going to migrate your business to Microsoft 365. With our FREE Supported Setup service, we’ll configure your domain and ensure it’s properly validated against the Microsoft servers. We’ll setup any email addresses you want to use and, optionally, we can also offer assistance with transferring over any existing emails you may have.
