MS 365 101: What is it?
MS Office 365 is a cloud-based form of the long-established Microsoft Office software that is specifically designed for the small to medium enterprise (SME) market with a broad range of benefits that can increase general profitability and productivity.
Although the advantages of a cloud solution may seem obvious in general, there are also some SMEs who are hesitant to make the decision and find the whole outlook quite frightening. They could choose to ‘dip your toe in the water’ to start with, by moving their email to the cloud, eliminating the burdensome and expensive Microsoft Exchange server from their office.
However, there is an assurance that switching to MS 365 and to the cloud is not really that complicated or scary as it may seem and as Microsoft Partners, pcr will make sure that the users will reap all of their rewards and experience in a very smooth method with no gaps in the delivery of service.
There are a lot of varying benefits of switching to a cloud based solution, so plenty in fact that rather than bore them with a very long blog, a handy and colorful infographic was created to do the explaining.
WHAT COULD THIS MEAN
Acrodex cloud computing simply means that the users are not anymore dependent on ‘remaining in the office’ just to open their documents and folders or to get the work done.The world is now at 24/7 where an access to files when needed has been important to business. It does not only enhance the mobility growth, productivity, it can also lessen the investment in IT infrastructure in the future.
WILL IT WORK FOR EVERYONE
For the growing SMEs, switching to the Cloud will also give the capacity to scale the number of licenses required according on the number of personnel, effectively Office 365 increases with the company. This “pay as you use” subscription-based model may be a primary benefit for SMEs and may save a significant amount of money. This model also permits the access to the current MS Office tools without the expensive cost of regular upgrading for instance; SharePoint for working together, Exchange for email, One Drive for individual cloud storage and Skype for Business for communication. Also, all updates are going to happen automatically at the server level so that there is no need to turn to a new version in the future.
ACCESS ANYWHERE, ANYTIME
The license may also give every user the rights to install the Office applications on 5 devices so that they can benefit from web applications from a mobile and tablet device making sure that they really do have access from anywhere at anytime.
One major worry for smaller businesses is the associated downtime with any IT infrastructure change. luckily pcr will make sure that downtime is minimal upto zero, letting no impact on work or service delivery.
