Why you should consider making the move to Office 365 - LoughTec

In our latest blog, hear from Ciara McNabb, Sales Executive at LoughTec as she outlines the benefits of implementing Office 365 across your business operations, and why you should do it now.

Efficiency is crucial for business owners. Being able to create, collaborate and communicate at ease enables organisations to be more productive.

Everyday tools such as Word, Exchange, Excel, SharePoint and Teams are now part of the fabric of the workplace, whether you’re working in the office environment or from home.

What would life be like without Office 365?

"Security of data, particularly in the cloud is a big concern for organisations. Organisations are naturally gravitating towards cloud services such as Office 365 as it is a safer option, as opposed to anything on-premises."

Here are some of the reasons I personally value Office 365:

  • Your data is safe

Arguably one of the most important benefits of Office 365.

Security of data, particularly in the cloud is a big concern for organisations. Organisations are naturally gravitating towards cloud services such as Office 365 as it is a safer option, as opposed to anything on-premises. Furthermore, the Office 365 framework is highly available, ensuring that data is secured and easily retrieved when systems or devices break down or suffer damage.

 

  • Always up to date

Office 365 updates automatically, so you don’t have to worry about doing so. These automatic updates come without any extra costs, and users get access to all the newest enhancements and upgrades as soon as they are released. All your essential apps such as Word, Excel and Outlook are included – you can work online without the need to install software.

 

  • Work from anywhere

In today’s technological world, where we can be connected 24/7, being able to work anywhere is the new norm. With Office 365, all users already have secure access on their devices. By signing into 365 on your browser, you can edit and control every file, email and your data.

 

  • Cost

With Office 365, there is a subscription plan to suit everyone. Businesses can choose from a variety of plans depending on their needs. You can also opt-in or out of services like Skype, SharePoint Online and OneDrive. There are so many tools now to improve communication and keep things centralised. Essentially, you pay for what you want and there are no hidden costs. This also makes it easy to forecast your business spend. You can cancel your subscription at any time.

 

Summary

Overall, simplicity is the running theme with Office 365. All the apps are intuitive and easy to use, so, organisations don’t need to invest in training to use these tools – making it even easier for you to roll out 365 across your business.

If you haven’t already considered Office 365 up until this point, you should now.
