Welcome to 2017 and welcome to Microsoft Office 365 in the cloud!
For the past several months, the Advantage team has been successfully migrating our clients from local Office 365 and Microsoft Exchange applications, to the new Office 365 email system. We’ve been testing, migrating and implementing new Office 365 email and Skype instant messaging features. We’ve also been testing new Office 365 productivity applications and functionality as well. We can confidently say, Office 365 in the cloud is a winner! Your organization should give Office 365 a serious review, and Advantage can help.
The Microsoft Office 365 cloud now allows many great features. Some of these include:
- Microsoft Outlook business class email in the cloud. Stay synced on your various devices. Utilize Microsoft’s cloud email security to prevent or minimize email spam.
- Office Applications like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, One Note and Publisher, some of which now allow for real time team collaboration across the office, or remotely!
- Skype Instant Messaging, which allows for immediate team and department communications, without the need to push emails back and forth. Video capabilities allow for team meetings without further third party software.
- Significant cloud storage: 50GB for each mailbox, with an additional 1TB of cloud file storage.
If your business is still utilizing Exchange servers, or local Microsoft application installations, Office 365 is definitely worth a look. Advantage can help you determine cost savings, improved team collaboration and productivity.
Advantage can help you plan your move to the Office 365 cloud. Typically, we start with a move of your Hosted Exchange email to the Office 365 Outlook cloud application. Once this migration successfully completes, Advantage can offer support on the range of applications included in your Office 365 plan.
