Right information, real time when connected
For businesses with field agents out on the road, getting connected with staff and having access to the same centralised document database is vital. With everyone (both literally and figuratively) on the same page, Office 365 enables sales teams to make decisions based on the real-time information available (when connected) – avoiding issues in stock being promised to multiple customers and allowing deals to be signed more efficiently.
If you have separate offices, suburbs or states away from each other, getting connected through a central cloud-based network can make significant strides towards seamless business. We know getting face-to-face with colleagues can have significant benefits, and video conferencing through Skype for Business™ online can help facilitate stronger bonds between staff on different premises.
Additionally, allowing teams to work off the same document together using cloud services can reduce or eliminate the need for passing documents back and forth and rectifying different versions.
Home office or small setups that don’t require a dedicated IT manager can rely on the simplicity and ease of managing the business needs through Office 365. With integrated calendars and secure access to shared information online, staying nimble has never been easier.
For growing businesses, Office 365 also provides a platform to accommodate for future IT requirements. Catering for up to 300 users, businesses only add new user fees as and when needed, making it a solution that grows as you do. It also works across PCs and Macs and compatible smartphones and tablets, so there’s no need to change your office set up.
Telstra’s Cyber Security Report 2014 showed that 50 per cent of organisations surveyed said they start thinking about security in the early phases of new IT products, and 41 per cent had experienced a major cyber security incident in the past three years.
Office 365 provides security features including protection against malware, spam and phishing. And with automated backups, you and your team are in sync and your data is securely stored
Overall, Office 365 is a flexible and familiar solution that can help remove the IT headache from the day-to-day and allow businesses to focus on what they do best – getting the job done. It’s proof that IT infrastructure doesn’t need to be a jargon-filled, technical process.
