Office365 is your network in the cloud.

It can offer you e-mail, a document, and a professional instant messaging platform.

Microsoft Exchange Online

For email accounts, the most common account types are Microsoft Exchange Server, POP3, IMAP, and Outlook.com (formerly Hotmail). Some features in Outlook 2010 require a Microsoft Exchange Server account. Exchange is a collaborative communications server that is used by many organisations.

Benefits of moving to Exchange Online with Office 365

Seamless Coordination with the Tools You Already Know

Office 365 works seamlessly with the programs you already know and use, including Outlook, Word, Excel, OneNote, Publisher and PowerPoint. These tools provide the same great features you rely on as well as powerful capabilities in Office 365. With multiple subscription levels in Microsoft Office 365, you can see if others are editing the document you’re using, synchronize documents with your desktop, broadcast PowerPoint presentations, and check documents in and out of your online document library.

Anytime, Anywhere Access

Microsoft® Office 365 provides web-enabled access to email, important documents, contacts, and calendar on almost any device—including PCs, Macintosh computers, iPhones, Android phones, and BlackBerry smartphones. It frees you to work where and when you choose, letting you respond to important requests right away, from almost any location. With the ability to access email and documents from your mobile device, you don’t need to hurry to the office or look for a WIFI hot spot. And if you’re traveling without access to Microsoft Office, Office 365 helps you view and edit documents from the most popular web browsers on PCs and Macintosh computers. Take control of when and where you work with Office 365.

Easily Communicate and Collaborate Inside and Outside Your Organization

With Office 365, you can create a password-protected portal to share large, hard-to-email files both inside and outside of your organization, giving you a single location to find the latest versions of files or documents, no matter how many people are working on them. Send instant messages to colleagues and customers and invite them to participate in online meetings where you can review documents or take control of a desktop.

Simple to Learn, Straightforward to Use

Office 365 is easy to try, simple to learn, and straightforward to use. You don’t need to learn new software, install complicated systems, or learn new jargon. In just a few minutes, you can create a trial account and see how easily your business can be “in the cloud” with benefits usually found only in larger organizations.

Email, Collaboration, and Online Meeting Solutions

Microsoft has years of experience delivering scalable, secure online solutions. Enhance your Office experience with Office 365 features like a 50-gigabyte (GB) mailbox that accommodates attachments up to 25 megabytes (MB), calendaring, contacts, online meetings, instant messaging, document collaboration and more. With Office 365, you can take advantage of these easy-to-use solutions and advanced features at a small-business price.

Safety and Security

Security is priority at Microsoft data centers. With Office 365, you can use the same systems used by Microsoft and other enterprises worldwide to help protect email, documents, and networks. These systems scan your messages and documents for spam and malicious software (also called malware) 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Microsoft data centers help safeguard your data and are certified to meet multiple industry-standard certifications.

No Requirement for Advanced IT Knowledge

Office 365 administration is designed for organizations without IT staff, so you can easily set up and use the features, helping you focus on your business rather than on learning menus and technical lingo. Perform administrative tasks using an intuitive, web-based portal that is accessible only to people you designate. The online portal provides step-by-step instructions on how to add users and set up your account so your employees can quickly start using Office 365.

Benefits of moving to Exchange Online with Office365

Outsourcing everyday worries

Compared to using the on-premises solution, SharePoint Online takes over some backup and recovery duties. This may reduce your dependence on third-party solutions for these routine tasks as well as tracking and auditing server performance. Once you’ve signed the service-level agreement (SLA), these worries are Microsoft’s problem, not yours.

Scheduling upgrades on your terms

A recent tweak to SharePoint Online allows you to customize how your organization receives updates and new features. Your company’s busiest month might not be the best time to get your mind around new SharePoint features. Previously, these changes would be implemented on Microsoft’s schedule, and could throw users off if the timing was inconvenient. Now, you have a dashboard for these changes that allows you to schedule or delay some platform improvements.

Adding mobility without compromising security

Even though SharePoint Online is in the cloud, you have the option to keep your enterprise information management behind your VPN (virtual private network). This configuration would ensure the content could only be accessed over your company’s network while providing mobility and flexibility for your users, all without having to create additional infrastructure for authentication.

Hybrid deployments

Some large organizations choose to use a hybrid cloud environment, in which highly customized and secure information still remains on-premises, while everyday collaboration needs move to the cloud. With SharePoint, you are able to store personal file shares, network drives and personal profiles in the cloud using One Drive, and use SharePoint’s enterprise search to look across content in both the on-premises and cloud environments. The SharePoint Service Pack 1 allows you additional control over your hybrid environment, such as choosing whether your One Drive is on-premises or in the cloud. These connections should continue to grow stronger as Microsoft pushes to further unite the on-premises and cloud experience.

Cost control

Many large organizations want flexible ways to bring collaboration solutions and functions to more of their workforce while reducing the overall cost of the infrastructure. The license-based SharePoint Online helps manage these costs. Depending on the arrangements you make with your Microsoft rep, you could use inexpensive, limited licenses for some roles in your organization to keep costs down.

Skype for Business

Skype for Business, formerly known as Microsoft Lync Server, is a unified communications (UC) platform that integrates common channels of business communication including instant messaging (IM), VoIP (voice over IP), file transfer, Web conferencing, voice mail and email.

Cut the cost of your business calls

Smaller businesses tend to communicate differently than larger entities. Instead of internal meetings, you spend more time reaching out individually to customers, prospects and partners. Making calls can be costly, especially if you’re talking to colleagues and customers on their mobile phones or when they’re in other parts of the world. Keeping costs to a minimum is vital to improving your bottom line.

By switching to Skype for business, your company can benefit from low-cost calls – including international calls and calls to mobiles. This will allow you to save on the cost of business calls without skimping on the quality of your service.

Keep track of your expenditures

Monitoring your expenses is essential when you’re trying to manage your operating costs – and with Skype for business, keeping track of your call costs is simple.

Skype Manager enables you to manage your Skype accounts centrally. You can set up accounts for your staff, allocate credit and keep track of how much everyone spends – making it easier for you to budget for your calls and identify where savings can be made.

Reduce your business travel costs

Communicating with clients and colleagues, wherever they are in the world, is key to the success of any business. But travel costs can make a big dent in your profits too. And it’s not just things like flights, fuel and hotel bills that can affect your company’s profitability when you’re spending time on the road – it also means you are spending less time in the office, which can hurt productivity.

Using Skype can help you and your employees cut down on non-essential business travel. A Skype video call is the perfect replacement for a face-to-face meeting – it’s just as personal as a traditional meeting, but you can schedule it into your normal work day at the office, saving you time and money.

And Skype’s Group Video Calling feature allows up to 10 people to join a video call meeting, enabling you to conduct board meetings, multi-agency meetings, project collaboration discussions, client meetings or even focus group discussions for less.

Stay in touch with colleagues

Making sure everyone involved in a project is kept in the loop means a business can run more efficiently – saving both time and money. And with Skype for business, you can do just that.

Skype’s instant messaging feature is the perfect tool for keeping in touch with colleagues. You can use it to check on each other’s progress, ask questions about an ongoing project and even send documents instantly, thanks to the file transfer feature.

And, with cheap calls, international calls and video calling, Skype for business provides you with a range of cost-effective ways to speak with your colleagues, no matter where they are.

Stay in touch with customers

Customers are the center of any business, small or large – and making sure they can contact you easily and cost-effectively is a must if you want to provide the high level of service that will keep them from going elsewhere.

When you use Skype for business, customers who also use Skype can call you from wherever they are just by clicking the Skype number on your website. And thanks to Skype’s low rates, it will save your customers money, too.
