Most organisations make use of key technology such as voice communication, Outlook for email, Word, PowerPoint, Excel and file storage for documents to help stakeholders work better together. Today it is important to be able to work from anywhere, on any device and collaborate with colleagues seamless, independently of location. All this must be achieved with confidence that vital information is secure, safe and meets regulatory requirements.
Traditionally organisations have implemented complex IT infrastructure and entered expensive support contracts to support that infrastructure which has consumed available budget without delivering any measurable business benefits beyond basic technology provision.
There is a better option!
Office 365 provides flexible and familiar tools that users are comfortable with but also provides additional tools for collaboration across teams, devices, and platforms if required. It provides organisations with control over their data security and compliance with privacy, transparency, and refined user controls built right in. Migration tools are also available to simplify the migration from on premise infrastructure to the Microsoft Cloud.
Small organisations now have the option to implement enterprise level infrastructure with built-in business continuity services and device management from the Microsoft cloud. Several plans are available based on a simple per user per month price that depending on the services required. Additional services can be very easily added as the organisation develops and transforms.
For example, an organisation might start with basic email, file storage and office product provision duplicating on-site infrastructure. As an organisation’s teams learn to collaborate through Office 365 the experience with Microsoft Cloud will open the possibility of better ways of working which may drive the purchase of addition services. An organisation may add services such as PBX calling, Dynamics 365 Financials or Dynamics 365 Sales to further improve efficient or exploit new business opportunities. The implementation of these apps is seamless with the Office 365 platform and allow the organisation to focus on the business outcomes rather than the technology that delivers it.
