Why We Choose Office 365 Over Other Productivity Platforms

Microsoft Office 365 is a productivity suite that consists of a number of different services designed for both personal and business use. It’s also our number one choice for productivity here at San-iT.

Whilst there may be alternative platforms on the market, we believe Office 365 is superior for a whole host of reasons such as…

Ease of Access

Did you know that 40% of the world’s population are Windows users? And that most Windows licences include the latest version of Microsoft Office, making it the most used productivity suite in the world? The fact that most computer users already have a basic understanding of many Microsoft programs (such as Word or Power Point) makes Office 365 a very accessible productivity suite. The consistent and intuitive design of Office 365’s various services means that, even when trying out a new service for the first time, most users will be able to navigate using prior knowledge gained from using other Microsoft services throughout their lifetimes.

It Includes Exchange Online

Exchange Online is Microsoft’s hosted email for businesses providing all the benefits of a cloud-based email service with the same capabilities you would expect from an on-premises server. Exchange Online allows users to securely access their emails any time from any device, offering 99.9% reliability so you can be sure you’re never without access.

In addition, Exchange Online offers unique email backup and recovery, allowing you to access deleted items. Alongside being one of the most secure and regulation compliant email services, Exchange Online can also identify and protect against the loss of sensitive data. In short, Exchange Online is one of the world’s most powerful cloud-based email services, used by small businesses and Fortune 500 companies alike.

Built for Business

Our most subscribed package is Office 365 Business Premium which features a number of unique services designed to increase productivity and help your business run smoothly. This includes One Drive for business, a file storage system which offers up to 1TB of storage per users; Microsoft Teams, a social network for your business which makes it even easier to communicate and collaborate on projects; and Sharepoint, a data storage system with automated workflow which provides a place for team members to organise, collaborate on, and share content/data.

Always Updated

With Office 365, you are guaranteed access to the latest versions of each individual Office program at no additional charge. This means you can take advantage of the latest features without having to uninstall and reinstall Office on everyone’s machines, saving you time and money.

Work Anywhere

Office 365 is entirely cloud-based, giving users the ability to work anywhere as long as there is an internet connection. This means you no longer have to work from one specific device or upload your files and data to external memory devices such as USB sticks in order to access them on the go. Say you need to present a document to a client at a business meeting? Office 365 lets you create the document at home on your PC, finish it on your laptop at work, and make any last-minute checks and amendments from your phone on the way into your meeting. Perfect for fast-paced business environments and collaborative projects.
