How does Microsoft Office 365 help your business?

Corporate IT environments are experiencing a state of change. Technology in the workplace is transitioning. In fact, what we define as the 'workplace' is changing. Microsoft Office 365 eases this transition.

How does Office 365 help your business?

Microsoft Office 365 is a cost-effective solution for maximizing employee collaboration and productivity while keeping corporate data secure. You get the latest versions of the Office applications across all devices, both corporate-owned and personal.


Office 365 enables companies to give their employees what they need to be successful in today's world of BYOD and cloud-based applications.


Traditional IT Environments Versus Modern IT Environments

Traditional IT Environments Modern IT Environments
single device multiple devices
business-owned user- and business-owned
corporate network and legacy apps cloud managed and SaaS apps
manual tasks automated tasks
reactive proactive
high-touch self-service



Office 365 has built-in intelligent security features, such as data loss prevention and multifactor authentication, features that are becoming increasingly important for companies with compliance needs.

By migrating to Office 365, you are automatically creating a more secure IT environment.

What's important to note is that the enhanced security of Office 365 brings an additional layer of security to your business without impeding employee productivity.

Migrating to Microsoft Office 365

Automatic Updates

With Office 365, you are no longer maintaining multiple versions of software. Upgrades are seamless and automatic with minimal impact to users. Everyone has the latest security enhancements, and as new features are rolled out, users have immediate access.

As on-premise versions of Office applications approach end-of-life, upgrading to Office 365 will become even more important. (Support for Office 2010 ends in October 2020.)


Benefits of Microsoft Office 365

By migrating your company to Microsoft Office 365, you gain these benefits:

  • safeguard company data across PCs, phones, and tablets
  • protect against security threats
  • provide users with a single login for all devices

What problems will Microsoft Office 365 solve for businesses?

Intelligent Security Built-in 
In today's world of BYOD, traditional IT boundaries are disappearing and companies must protect data on company-owned devices as well as employee-owned devices. Office 365 helps you protect your company data across devices — even on employees' personal devices. Data is securely stored by Microsoft. If an employee separates from the company, corporate information can be removed from personal devices on demand, while leaving personal data untouched.

Always Up to Date 
Company devices are automatically kept up to date with the latest features and security updates without adversely impacting employee productivity. Users have immediate access to all the latest features.
