Office 365 is Microsoft's state of the art enterprise IT environment. Boasting more than 100 million monthly active users, it's completely changing the way businesses work.

Read on to find out our top 5 reasons why migrating to Office 365 will benefit your business;

1. Cloud benefits 

Gone are the days of waiting until you have access to a computer to view and edit your files. Office 365 is completely cloud based, meaning you can access your applications, data and mail anytime, anywhere and from any device.

The software can also be installed on up to 5 devices per user – which is handy if you have employees who work from home, across multiple devices, or travel for business.

2. Dream team 

Collaboration is now much easier, thanks to a suite of online services which enable you to easily share information and communicate with colleagues, partners and customers. 

With OneDrive and SharePoint, your entire team can read, co-author and update files from anywhere - meaning you’ll only be working from one version of a document, rather than having multiple versions floating around.

3. Say goodbye to costly and time-consuming upgrades

You’ll get access to the latest versions and features of Microsoft Office applications at no extra charge. Plus Microsoft automatically takes care of all security patching, software upgrades, bug fixes and capacity expansion.

4. Pay-as-you-go

Office 365 is a subscription-based CSP service. It’s a great way for businesses to spread the cost of licenses over fixed monthly payments, rather than making the financial commitment of a one off expensive purchase.

There are several Office 365 plans available with different programmes and features – as not every employee will need the same features, you can mix and match plans so you only pay for what you need. You can switch between plans too, giving you the flexibility to ramp up or down activity to fit your business needs.

5. Be GDPR ready

If you’re concerned about the impact that GDPR regulations will have on the way you hold data after May 2018, fear not! Office 365 comes with built in security features such as encrypted email and data loss prevention that can simplify your GDPR compliance journey.
