Small and medium sized organisations need to empower remote workers to communicate and collaborate productively, using their own devices when they want. At the same time, businesses need to keep data secure and the business compliant. Critically, business continuity is at a growing risk from cyber-attacks such as ransomware, making data protection and compliance a high priority for ambitious organisations.
Microsoft 365 Business is specifically designed to help small and medium sized businesses address these challenges using cloud-based applications. Microsoft 365 Business replaces the need for multiple products to manage your security, communication and productivity tools. It is a cost-effective way of equipping your teams with the secure, collaborative tools they need. These range from familiar applications like the Office suite and Exchange for email, to the newer Microsoft tools like Yammer business social network and Microsoft Teams.
Above a standard business premium package, Microsoft 365 Business also gives you mobile device management, mobile application and PC management in the cloud. Plus it’s all run on the latest Windows 10 operating system, automatically updated for business security.
Get on board with Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and give your employees the freedom to use their preferred devices without risking the security of your business data. Keep the business and personal elements separate by preventing users from copying content from Office apps like Word into personal apps and forcing users to save work documents to OneDrive for Business and encrypt them.
Collaborate and get things done faster with email and instant messaging and applications such as desktop versions of Office, Planner for managing tasks and file storage. With access to the latest innovations, you can start using the latest features immediately. Central management enables you to administer these services easily, without needing to access every user’s system.
Using familiar tools like Outlook, Word and Skype for Business mean people in your business adopt Microsoft 365 Business so much quicker. So, moving to this technology doesn’t get in the way of day-to-day business operations.
Traditional IT had to allow for staff churn or seasonal uplift during busy periods, forcing businesses to buy licences and resources up front only for it to be wasted when no longer required. Similarly, if your business expands rapidly a lot of upfront cost can make it difficult to balance the books. With Microsoft 365 Business, you can scale your licencing month by month to fit the needs of your business as you consolidate or grow.
