Microsoft Office 365 is a way to leverage the cloud to make your business documents available whenever, wherever you need them, secured in Microsoft’s global data-centers. Office 365 is a collection of programs and services for business e-mail, document storage, and online collaboration. Office 365 is subscription-based, which means you pay a fixed-fee per user depending upon the services required.
Robust product set – as a Microsoft Office 365 customer, you gain access to enterprise-grade software suites such as Microsoft Exchange 2013, SharePoint 2013, Microsoft Lync 2013, and even Office 2013 Professional Plus. This allows your organization, regardless of its size, to achieve optimal productivity and efficiency by using current, cutting edge software platforms.
Pay as you go – the subscription model provides you with pricing flexibility to subscribe to the services you need based on the employees in your organization. You can mix and match licensing types, depending upon the services required by your specific business units. This saves you from having to make large capital investments in software and systems that might not be used by all members within your organization. The subscription model also means costs are operational (and can be fully expensed) versus having to amortize acquired software as a capital asset.
Work from anywhere – with Office 365 being in the cloud, this allows your organization to be as agile as possible. You can access company information and work from anywhere, without the need for cumbersome VPNs and other expensive remote access technologies. With seamless mobile device integration, you have access to company data at your fingertips at all times. Office 365 supports Active Directory federation, meaning users can use the same network ID’s and passwords as for internal systems.
