Many of our customers often ask us how we empower users and enable IT. One way is through Office 365. Watch my Ask SWC video blog to learn more about how Office 365 will benefit your organization.

Microsoft SharePoint Enablement

Office 365 is Microsoft’s SaaS or subscription-based productivity software that offers cloud versions of all of your favorite Microsoft Office suite products. The solution empowers users by giving them a single portal to access all of these resources and enables IT by giving them a single pain of glass to manage all of their applications.

Office 365 includes your favorite Microsoft solutions:

  • Exchange Online for email and calendaring
  • Lync Online helping workers better communicate through audio and video conferencing, IM, presence and voice
  • SharePoint Online for collaboration, search, portal and content management
  • Dynamics CRM to better track sales leads, improve marketing effectiveness and service customers
  • Power BI for data analysis, visualization capabilities and reporting

There are many challenges that organizations face in the modern workplace that Office 365 can help solve for both users and IT departments. Office 365:

  • Provides access to the applications users need in order to be productive in the office or on the go in a familiar Microsoft Office experience
  • Helps cut hardware and operations costs for IT in a secure and an always available environment
  • Allows users to Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) to the workplace without IT having to worry about managing a bunch of devices or data
  • Reduces the burden on IT through automatic updates in the cloud
  • Reduces licensing costs as organizations only pay for what their users use
