Office 365 VersionsDeciding on an office suite for your business doesn't have to be overwhelming and confusing.  The right office suite for your business will help your productivity and poise your organization for growth.  So let's look at the features of Office 365 to help you join the 60 million monthly Office 365 users worldwide.

Unified App Dashboard

Office 365 has a unified user interface that uses tools and apps that you're already comfortable with. You can sync and share documents from Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Publisher, and Outlook across your network.

Office 365 also offers a number of business apps that you can access via the dashboard. Here are a few of tools that are included:

  • Microsoft PowerBI
  • Microsoft Dynamics
  • Microsoft Forms

Because the suite is a subscription service, all your programs and apps will stay up to date!

Cloud Servers and Storage

Worried about running out of hard drive space or storage on the company server?  With Office 365, you'll have 1TB per user of cloud storage using Microsoft's OneDrive.  Users will be able to share documents and files via the cloud for easy collaboration and teamwork.

Security

If you're worried about security, fear not! Microsoft has your back.  Microsoft does not reveal the location of its physical servers, where data is stored.  Data is always encrypted and regularly backed-up to prevent serious data corruption or losses.

You can rest assured knowing Microsoft only uses customer data for improving its services and not mining for advertising purposes.

Need a Domain?

If your business is just starting out, you might need a domain name to start building a high converting website.  After signing up for Office 365, you get an onmicrosoft.com domain name that you can use.

If you want a custom domain for your business, you can buy it right from the Office 365 dashboard. No need to go to an outside domain registrar or waste time dealing with DNS records!

Business Email

Speaking of your business domain name, you can easily create business email inboxes with Outlook and Exchange in the Office 365 Suite.  Creating employee email addresses is easy in the package. You can easily sync calendars, email, and documents across devices so your team never misses a meeting or a deadline.

Email Marketing and CRM

If your business relies on email to reach clients and customers, Office 365 offers powerful email marketing and CRM tools right within the dashboard.  With Outlook Customer Manager and Microsoft Connections, email marketing will be natively connected to your other Microsoft apps with no need for limiting external integrations!
