Office 365 is the same Office you’re familiar with—the same one you use every day. And since Office 365 is powered by Microsoft’s Azure cloud, employees can access their applications and files from virtually anywhere using PC, Mac and select mobile devices. Office 365 allows easy access to the latest versions of Office programs including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, as well as Office Mobile Apps. What’s more, the cloud-based nature of Office 365 means that as your business grows, the application adapts to meet your needs.
How Can Office 365 Help Your Business?
Office 365 is specifically designed to meet the needs of organizations of all sizes—sole proprietors, large and mid-sized businesses, government agencies and educational institutions—helping you save time and money, while freeing up valued resources.
From a single easy-to-manage portal, assigned administrators can manage every aspect of their business using familiar tools—such as SharePoint On-Line, Exchange On-line and Skype for Business—to provide users with an easy-to-use, collaborative platform.
