Why SMEs are Migrating to Office 365

Cloud business solutions enable companies of all sizes – and especially SMEs – to benefit from enterprise-class IT infrastructure at a fraction of the costs associated with traditional on-premises systems. It is the case with the migration from the classic Microsoft Office suite to the cloud-enabled Microsoft Office 365.

Aside from financial accessibility, organisations making the transition to Office 365 take advantage of the latest technology system and security updates, improved workforce productivity and collaboration, flexibility in operations, and simplified processes.

More Flexibility with Office 365

Office 365 offers the flexibility of a cloud solution while its popular applications can also be integrated with on-premises solutions. The cloud-based Office 365 enables teams to engage with company data, collaborate and share from any connected devices.

Office 365 features all the popular desktop applications like Word, Excel and Powerpoint plus a host of new web enabled communication & collaboration tools such as Skype for Business, Yammer and OneDrive. You can access Office 365 anytime, anywhere on any device.

High Availability and Redundancy

Office 365 benefits from the public cloud’s high availability and network redundancy, which is ideal for the sharing and collaboration of large mailboxes and calendars, as well as the usage of instant messaging and video calls via Skype.

Accessible and Competitive Tools

Due to its cloud accessibility and cost reductions incurred, SMEs receive the same enterprise-level services previously reserved for large corporations. Furthermore, Office 365 allows users to select and add their choice of applications that meet their business needs, all in one place.

Comprehensive Data Security

The Office 365 applications are backed up by comprehensive security measures and benefit from ongoing support, data backups, and regular updates. Office 365’s data protection and file backup guarantee that all documents are always accessible, avoiding disastrous data loss.

In a nutshell, moving to the Office 365 cloud solution adds value to organisations looking to reduce IT infrastructure costs and streamline daily admin and business processes without losing the familiarity of Microsoft’s technology tools.

Office 365 integrates cloud, mobile, and social technology solutions to make your business more collaborative and productive.
