Office 365 is one of the most advanced, sophisticated, and widely used office suites available today. Packed full of features that are designed to increase productivity and improve daily practices within your business, it’s easy to see why this collection of software has become the backbone of office work around the world.
Fusion’s Technical Account Manager, Matthew Gledhill shares some of the best ways to utilise it within your company.
Since the changeover to the monthly subscription-based model, you can now fine tune your user count to make sure your business isn’t paying for extra users that left 6 months ago! What’s more, you can also choose the correct licensing based on your individual user needs and alter the license as required.
The Microsoft Office package cost upwards of £150 per person back in 2019, with the final edition offered before the introduction of Office 365. The 365 Business Basic package retails at £3.80 per user per month, with plenty of other additional licensing options for extra features. This new payment system goes hand-in-hand with the flexible licensing system to allow a truly open, accessible and adaptable experience, possibly for the first time.
Nowadays, it seems like everyone is constantly rushing to get somewhere, and this is where Office 365 has your back. Work on the go is now possible with mobile apps that are available to download for your Android, iPhone, iPad, tablet or even web browsers. With the added addition of OneDrive (that comes coupled with Outlook integration), collaborative working is possible at any time, in any place.
Once you’ve assigned your correct user license all you need is an internet connection and you’ll be able to make sure that PowerPoint is ready for the big presentation the very next day, even after you’ve left the office!
Now this wouldn’t be a very good post on 365 without mentioning the newcomer to Microsoft’s stable, Microsoft Teams! Since the start of the global pandemic, Teams has seen a massive 700% increase in users and it’s easy to see why. Working remotely has never been easier – conversations, files, and meetings are held in a shared, structured hub that’s accessible to teammates and groups, meaning the right information goes to the right people every time. Pair the above with native integration to other 365 apps such as Word, Excel and PowerPoint and collaboration is intuitive and as simple as it should be.
The features listed above are just the start of what is arguably Microsoft’s most adaptive, modern, and all-encompassing software package to date. Acting as a hub for all major office computing needs, 365 has only reinforced Office’s reputation as the cornerstone of the future of the working world.
More accessible and affordable than ever, and largely unmatched by competitors, Office 365 truly is a unique package that has evolved with the modern age, built for business whenever you need it.
