Microsoft 365 Solutions
The internet has created and provided opportunities for millions of businesses to grow and profit in an impressively short space of time.
As a business, time is priceless, but it won’t slow down for you. And if the worst happens – your server goes down, your PC corrupts or breaks, a hacker steals valuable data – there’s no way back for your business.
The good news is: Microsoft has created a time machine. A means of translating what you know about the old faithful desktop programs (Word, Excel, PowerPoint) into a safe, profitable, professional package, perfect for entrepreneurs and small businesses on a tight budget.
Here are six reasons you should upgrade to Microsoft 365.
1. You can work ANYWHERE
Travel much? You’re not alone. If it’s not commutes, it’s business meetings, conferences, site checks – you name it.
Work isn’t going to do itself though. Which is why Microsoft 365 works seamlessly on any device, from your PC and laptop to your tablet and phone. And the files you typed up on your computer in the office can be accessed from any of these devices, anytime, anywhere.
All you need is an internet connection.
2. Your work has never been safer
We get your concerns. If it’s so easy to access those highly classified documents from your mobile phone, won’t that make it easier to steal?
If you’ve got your accounts and permissions sorted out (and we can do that for you), access to your space on the cloud is strictly reserved for you.
And the security tools in place with Microsoft 365 are far in excess of anything that most SMEs would deploy locally.
You can’t predict when the device you’re working on will crash, or a piece of hardware will fail. But when you use Microsoft 365, your files should survive any hardware disasters. That’s one less thing to worry about.
3. Everything is in one place
If you’re a Windows user, you’ve probably been using Microsoft Office for years. For business needs, nothing else comes close to it.
But now with Microsoft 365 there’s even more functionality. Not pointless features for the sake of features – these are additions which truly make Microsoft 365 a necessity for any business or entrepreneur.
Depending on the package (and most are extremely reasonable) you’ll have access to:
• All Microsoft Office desktop apps with 1TB cloud storage and sharing
• Business-class email including calendar and contacts with a 50GB inbox
• Unlimited online meetings, IM and HD video conferencing
• Teams for collaborative working
• Access online from any device – and install Office applications on your devices
This is ideal for solopreneurs, but there are also packages for businesses which provide this service over multiple users and devices.
This means you can have your documents, email, networking and calendar all in one place, on the cloud, ready to access whenever you, or your team, need it.
4. It’s a professional package, used by professionals
You can tell when a document or spreadsheet hasn’t had Microsoft’s input…
There are other online suites of tools for businesses, but they don’t quite match the polish and professionalism Microsoft Office, and the fact most others rely entirely on an internet connection has its downfalls.
For one, there isn’t as much functionality within the programs. Each has been stripped down for easier online access, sacrificing some of the useful features you’ve grown used to.
Plus, it’s the format everyone’s using, for good reason.
5. Get the latest versions for NO extra cost
One of the biggest frustrations for any business is the constant need to upgrade software every year. With Office 365 that is no longer a problem.
Because it is hosted, all updates are automatically rolled out and updated as part of an Microsoft 365 subscription. That means never having to pay hundreds and hundreds to upgrade software. Now that’s a huge cost saving, especially when you have a team.
And it really helps you keep on top of your game and boost your productivity having the most up-to-date software at your fingertips.
6. It’s affordable, even for startups
Not every successful business begins with record breaking profits on year one, or two, or three even. But in order to set yourself up for success there’s a price.
Fortunately that price isn’t high, not by any stretch of the imagination.
No, really, we’re talking less than £5 per month for Microsoft 365 Business Basic which gives you email, 1TB of storage, online access to Microsoft Office and SharePoint for sharing documents across your team. That’ll set up an entrepreneur like yourself with the best business tools on the market. Many users step up to Microsoft 365 Business Standard, which includes the installed version of Microsoft Office, for only £11.30 per user per month – or for a package with advanced security options go for Microsoft 365 Business Premium for £15.10 per user per month
And you can add our fantastic support service to any of the packages for only £25 per user per month. That’s full user support for Microsoft 365 and your day to day IT for only £25 per user per month.
What’s better is that you don’t even have to sign up for 12 months or get stuck on a long term contract. It really is as simple as that. Use it for as long as you need. And when you’re ready to take on staff (or even get rid of staff), scale your IT up and down and never pay any more than you need.
