The way in which we do business today has changed. We’re in constant motion. Work is no longer confined to the office; it extends into every corner of life — the local coffee shop, the airport, or the home office. With work patterns changing, employees need tools that enable productivity and collaboration anytime, anywhere. Enter Microsoft Office 365 — Office 365 meets your employees where they are. They can work from anywhere, and on any device. However, many thinking about making a switch wonder about the benefits and whether switching is worth the time and expense.
Here are the Top 3 reasons Microsoft Office 365 is essential to your business:
Office 365 safeguards against downtime
Downtime costs businesses a tremendous amount of money each year. In fact, $26.5 billion is lost every year, according to Information Week. But the tricky part about downtime is that it extends beyond the initial event. A company’s reputation, customer loyalty, and employee morale all take a hit.
Office 365 is the foundation of a solid recovery plan, with a service-level agreement that offers 99.9 percent scheduled uptime. In addition, it offers that “anytime, anywhere” access that employees need during an unexpected event to continue working and serving your customers.
Office 365 eliminates the upfront software investment
Making a software purchase in the past was a pretty big decision, largely because of the upfront capital investment. The price tag was high. But the benefit of a cloud-based solution, such as Microsoft Office 365, is that you can avoid the large upfront investment.
Instead, the cost structure includes a low monthly subscription fee, which reduces the burden on companies that need a new solution but perhaps don’t want to invest so heavily upfront.
Office 365 always delivers the latest version of the software
In the past, upgrades were a regular occurrence with computer-based software options. This was not only time-consuming, but also costly. In contrast, a cloud-based solution allows you to always have the latest version of the software. However, you can accomplish this without being required to install updates or purchase new software.
