Say YES to Office 365’s Real Time Collaboration
If your business is thinking about the cloud then maybe it is time to make the switch!
With Microsoft’s goal of being a one stop shop for all thing’s software, the world of software licensing is changing. More and more businesses are moving to Software as a Service (SaaS) and are using Microsoft products, specifically Office 365, to keep their business up and running.
Office 365 is a leading platform in SaaS. Why? Office 365 offers real time collaboration with your software licensing. This means each application has a corresponding web app that allows for collaboration.
Directly from the browser, without needing to open the desktop application, you and others can simultaneously edit and use many Microsoft products, including: Word, Excel, Powerpoint, OneNote, etc.
Sending copy after copy of the same document can become problematic if multiple people are looking and making changes. With SharePoint and OneDrive offering co-authoring, you can share documents inside or outside of your business. This feature also allows for real-time editing, where you can even track the changes made by the contributors. Likewise, using SharePoint and OneDrive is secure. You can decide who has access or edit the document.
You can also say goodbye to sending attachments by email. Instead, you can share a link. This link opens a web browser that automatically hosts the latest updates and changes to your document. Another benefit to this attachment feature is that you will no longer be adding to storage space issues with users’ mailboxes.
Offline access is also available. By using the sync option on SharePoint or OneDrive, you can sync any file onto your computer. From there, you can work on the files when you are offline and when you are back online the changes will sync to the cloud automatically.
Office 365 is a great tool for collaboration because it uses the cloud! So, do you think you are ready to get started?
