Microsoft 365 (which used to be called Office 365) is a subscription service that provides you with all the most up to date productivity, collaboration and communication apps from Microsoft. It brings together all your people, information, and content in one place to give users everything they need, whenever they need it.
One of the best business tools in the business
If you’ve used Office before – and most of us have – you’ll already know that Microsoft has some of the most user-friendly and feature-rich work programmes out there. Microsoft 365 gives you all the latest versions of all your favourite, premium apps like Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Outlook, OneNote and OneDrive.
But it also includes a lot of extra features, like advanced device management, business-class email, enterprise file services, powerful cloud collaboration utilities and state of the art security. Add in the fact that you can access its apps from any computer or mobile device, and you can see that Microsoft 365 offers pretty much everything you need to make your business more creative, productive and secure.
In a nutshell, Microsoft 365 is pretty much one of the main go-to business IT packages for most companies on the planet using PCs!
Some of the main benefits
- Work better from anywhere
Microsoft 365 offers easy, anywhere access to your email, files and applications. No matter what app you’re using, it delivers a seamless experience across all your devices. And you can automatically sync files to your desktop, so you can work on files when you’re offline, whether you’re using a Windows, Mac or mobile device.
- Do more with your mobile devices
Each Microsoft 365 user can get the latest apps for up to five devices (Windows, macOs, iPadOS, IOS and Android). All Office apps are optimised for mobile devices, so you can manage your email, join meetings and work on documents from anywhere.
- Share and collaborate more easily
Sharing files with OneDrive is a secure, seamless way to let other people see, edit or comment on your documents in real time. And being able to track file activity keeps everyone on the same page. Using SharePoint, you can also manage and share files or folders within team or intranet sites and across your business.
- Keep everything in sync
Work on a file, save it directly to OneDrive or SharePoint, and any changes you make are updated seamlessly. Deep integration with Office means you can start co-authoring a document on one device and finish on another, and you can choose from a range of tools to annotate, highlight, and comment on it.
- Work face to face, wherever you are
Teams allows everyone you work with to chat, meet, call and collaborate in one place, no matter where you’re all working. Whatever size your team is – from 10 to 10,000 – you can go from group chat to video conference at the touch of a button. And because Teams allows you to access, share and edit Word, Powerpoint and Excel files in real time, you won’t waste any time hunting around for files.
