Work from Home, or the Office, or Both!

Microsoft 365 has the answers businesses are looking for whether your team is working from home, the office, or both! Most data can be moved into the Microsoft cloud, making it accessible through Office 365 apps for those users that may be using personal laptops, tablets, or other devices when working outside of the office.

The tools we are all familiar with are available where and when you need them. The option to add additional resources can be included to increase the efficiencies in your team’s participation from wherever they may need to work from. This also alleviates worrying about personal devices being used. Organizations will have peace of mind knowing that Microsoft has the tools to ensure data is safe and remains in the cloud.

Microsoft offers a way for your teamwork to reach the next level of collaboration as its needed. With services such as Exchange, OneDrive, SharePoint, and Microsoft Teams that combine communication, collaboration, and intelligence, communication at a distance is possible. Benefits include:

  • Data is encrypted between Microsoft data center and the user
  • Backup can be performed in a cloud to cloud scenario
  • No need for major infrastructure changes to provide users access to files
  • Flexibility to scale your business quickly
  • Capability to work from anywhere as long as you have internet connectivity.
  • Always up to date because it’s in the cloud
  • Built-in security features to keep your company’s data safe.

A dynamic team brings together all their strengths to create a final product in a secure environment no matter where they are working from or what device they are working on.

SharePoint allows for more advanced collaboration that is seamless with team sites for sharing inside and outside your organization. SharePoint includes apps that will help you to find, add, edit, and brainstorm together smoothly and cohesively. SharePoint provides for integration with existing systems and the flexibility to be added to as your needs increase.

Microsoft Teams has become the fastest growing app in Microsoft’s history. You have immediate access to all your apps and documents. You can efficiently respond to chat and conversations, join meetings with one click, and continue to collaborate. So even on the move, you are entirely kept in the loop.

OneDrive for Business provides endless possibilities with the amount of storage you receive. With an entire Terabyte of data storage, you can save about two million funny cat pictures (or work documents)! Access of this storage can be from any number of devices; desktops, laptops, tablets, or smartphones.

Microsoft 365 is the hub for remote teamwork.

Bring together all the apps and services your people need and give them all the information and tools right at their fingertips. Not only will the desktop versions of Office applications along with the web versions of Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, allowing the entire staff to be informed and engage with a company-wide intranet and team sites.
