Office 365 installation and setup

Move to the cloud?
If you’re like most small businesses then chances are you’ve struggled with this issue — and with good reason. After all, you’ve got a lot to think about.

What is the cloud really going to cost?

Will it enable your people to work how and where they want while keeping you in control?

How do you know your data is secure?

Don’t worry. We hear you.

That’s why we recommend Microsoft Office 365.
Office 365 is a cloud-based service hosted by Microsoft that brings together familiar Microsoft Office desktop applications with business-class email, shared calendars, instant messaging (IM), video conferencing, and file sharing. With Office 365, you’ll receive secure, enterprise-grade tools for a predictable monthly cost and no upfront infrastructure investments. Get your work done faster from virtually anywhere, working with the Office you already know!

Office 365 is Microsoft’s email cloud based subscription service that provides virtually anywhere access to your familiar Office applications plus business-grade email, calendar, and video conferencing across your devices – from PCs to smartphones to tablets.

 

Here’s what’s new:

Devices: The new Office works across all your devices. With its modern, clean, and fluid user interface, it works with touch, mouse and keyboard, or pen.

Cloud: When away from your computer, you can stream a full-featured version of Office on any internet-connected PC with Office on Demand. Your documents are saved to the cloud by default so you can share and collaborate just by sending a link.

Social: Stay connected to all of your contacts. You can quickly schedule a meeting, send an email, start an IM (instant message) or voice and video chat – or host a multi-party HD video conference in a few clicks.

Simplified IT: The new Office has solutions optimised for size and IT needs. The common set of IT management tools in the new Office will simplify management across your on-premises and cloud environments.
