Work from Home Using Office 365

Microsoft’s Office 365 suite offers a great core selection of features with the convenience of SaaS applications. It includes all the components of the classic on-premises applications, including Exchange Online, OneDrive for Business, and SharePoint Online hosted in Microsoft’s cloud.

These systems are managed and monitored for always-on availability and enable redundant services across the vast network of Microsoft data centers worldwide. O365 is all about ensuring users can collaborate easily and access their files from multiple devices at any time, from any location. Which is very handy considering the changing climate of being able to work currently.

While collaborative cloud software can be a fantastic tool to increase overall productivity in the workplace, it’s easy to get bombarded by all of the features available if someone is new to the product. To cut through the noise, it’s important to note that Microsoft’s Office 365 platform can benefit businesses in a number of ways:

  • Save time and money: Instead of investing and maintaining on-premises servers, Office 365 allows businesses to run applications in the cloud. It removes the need for on-site management and checkups—improving the overall user experience. Additionally, you can standardize all users at your company to be on the same versions of Microsoft apps. Rather than having to update everyone’s individual software packages, latest apps can be downloaded from the Cloud as they are released.
  • Room for growth: Office 365 offers unlimited storage, so it can scale to meet growing business needs easily.
  • Work from anywhere: Keeping these applications at your fingertips can be a great asset. All users need is their login and an Internet connection. Users can collaborate and view changes in real time from any device.

As with all of business-critical data, Office 365 data does need to be backed up.  After all, just because data lives in the cloud does not mean it is backed up. Partek has efficiently migrated hundreds of people to Office 365 and implemented industry-leading backup and security standards to protect it.
