Office 365 Utilization

The Office 365 program delivers the same productivity suite we all love on a monthly subscription basis. Microsoft offers a variety of bundles and capabilities to choose from. It also has applications like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, OneNote, Exchange Email, SharePoint and Lync. You even have the choice of using online versions of these applications or continuing to install them locally on up to five devices (Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android).

While some Office 365 resellers want to lock you into annual contracts with automatic renewals, AO Holdings Limited offers simple month to month billing that lets you add or remove users at any time.

Easy, Real-Time Team Collaboration

Leverage Team Sites to let all team members work and comment on the same project from different locations- One of the unique features of Office 365 is the ability to create Team Sites. Team Sites are collaboration spaces that are only available to users that the admin chooses. From the team site, you’ll be able to share documents for collaboration on projects and post messages to co-workers. The Team Site is highly customizable with tools that you can use to personalize the look and layout.

Office 365 includes Microsoft’s cloud file storage service called OneDrive for Business. From an individual perspective, OneDrive is a solid file storage platform that includes lots of space and makes your files accessible from anywhere. It is a great fit for solo practitioners and small businesses that need simple file storage.

For larger, more complex organizations, OneDrive can be a little lacking in the area of corporate data management and shared file storage. These solutions offer a more robust file storage and retention solution that lets you manage and share your files in a way that better meets your corporate compliance needs.

With Office 365 you get a total cloud desktop solution that includes the full Office experience along with all your other business applications in a user interface that users already know and embrace.

Some of the features of office 365 include; familiar Microsoft applications including Word, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint and OneNote, etc., optional communication and collaboration tools (Exchange Lync and SharePoint), range of installation and access options from browser-based apps to desktop and mobile versions, Microsoft OneDrive or Epic-Cloud storage, based upon your needs and, share documents over any web browser on any device.

Some of the benefits of Office 365 are guaranteed 99.9% uptime, availability of the latest version, accessibility of Office from anywhere, month to month agreement and addition or removal of users at any time.
