After four months at Resolve, I’ve been exposed to a variety of IT procedures that maximise productivity and ensure our clients’ needs are always met. Having a well-managed IT infrastructure begins with a strong, competent team of IT engineers, but it also includes having access to up-to-date applications that will provide you with the best service possible. One of these applications is Office 365 and I am going to explain why I like it so much here…
To begin with, Office 365 provides you with a variety of business essential applications. But, it doesn't just provide you with those things on your computer, at your desk, at work, but it gives you access to them any time, any place. This is especially handy when IT systems randomly go down, as services offered by 365 – like Sharepoint – can drastically reduce downtime by providing access to all company files from any location. Files can also be shared outside and inside your organisation, making integration easier for improving relationships between partners.
Sometimes, you'll find yourself in a situation where you’re swamped with work, deadlines need to be met but your time in the office is limited, meaning you must take your work home. Office 365 gives you access to your whole office suite, including Word, Outlook, Excel etc in the comfort of your home or local coffee shop. Office 365 also provides access to your files through one drive, so you can sync all your work and get to it from any location – this is obviously very beneficial for users who spend a lot of time on the road.
As a whole, I think Office 365 can play a major part in business development because it has one of the best email clients and mail applications. The Office 365 app allows you access to Word, Excel, OneDrive etc. so having a broken PC no longer should hold you back from getting things done.
