How can small businesses benefit from Office 365?

As a small business owner, if you have been looking around for tools that would make it possible for you to manage your team more efficiently and have everyone in sync on all accounts, then it is time that you stop looking any further. Office 365 with its excellent features and model is the answer you have been seeking all along. It might just be the perfect tool but what exactly makes it so crucial for your team? Let us find that out.

24/7 availability

Considering all the significant factors that pose a threat to your business, you need to ensure that your business and the system at the backend stays running all day round, no matter what happens. As per a survey conducted by the U.S. Institute for Business and Home Safety in 2015, more than 25% of the small business owners are not prepared to handle a disaster like fire or flood. Office 365 saves all the data on the cloud ensuring that all your applications and documents are fully protect-ed at all instances.

Security of data

Because your data is safe in the cloud, Office 365 offers you a fair chance to focus on things that matter. You can now:
• Control the data remotely
• Access it anytime and even from the mobile devices
• Store the data whenever you want
• Ensure better security of your data
For added security, the online storage of 1TB of OneDrive will further secure the data and provide more space for storage.

Work remotely

Remember the times when you had to take assistance from someone who was in IT and capable enough to set you for VPN (virtual private network) services just so that you could access the work files remotely? Well, it won’t be the case anymore. With Office 365 and an internet connection, you can now work anywhere anytime without any hassle at all.

Scalable pricing model

With transparency in the pricing packages and that too with the added feature of customising the plan for your personalised needs, Office 365 lets you control your monthly budget even better. Furthermore, you are not tied into any contract and would be free to modify the package based on your business requirements.

Licensing is not a problem

Sorting through licensing and ensuring that all your employees are working on the same version of the software can be a real mess but not anymore. Office 365 takes care of it all and ensures that all the users get upgraded simultaneously, across the company, and are using the same version.
Managing the operations and workforce is as important for big organisations as it is for the small business owners. Choosing the right tools that complement and are coherent with business methodologies is the first right step you can take. Office365 with its features as mentioned above will prove to be the right choice for you. So, make the needful switch today and experience the difference for yourself.
