This is one solution, designed for your business to empower employees, safeguard your business data, and simplify your IT
Microsoft 365 Business enables you to achieve more together, anywhere it matters with always on security that you can trust.
In your course of business every day, how do your people work together or connect with customers? Is it some combination of meetings, phone calls and email? What about remote employees or people in the field?
[Use the answers to the above to have a conversation to illustrate the three points about collaboration]
It goes without saying that for almost every business, how you work together is critical. Not just among co-workers, but also with your customers. What makes Microsoft 365 Business so special is that these kinds of connections are easy enough for anyone to understand and use—from email, to chat, to online meetings.
Let me ask you another question. How do you work together on documents now? This can mean different things to different people, even within a small group. [pause and react]. With most of the people I talk to, it’s emailing files back and forth—and that works, but it can lead to confusion, versioning issues, and of course, the downsides of email, like losing things to spam filters, or mistakenly sending attachments to the wrong people. We’ve all been there. With Microsoft 365 Business, all of this gets a lot better so you can create, share, and work on the same document at the same time with your co-workers.
I can’t overstate the power of being able to work together without having to think about where people are or the practical considerations of how they are supposed to engage with shared documents. This ability to connect regardless of device and no matter where people are working, can make an immediate, positive impact on how your people do their jobs. And when you are doing this, it’s reassuring to know that you are always accessing the right versions of your documents, regardless of device.
How often do you find yourself in a situation where you need to work without the internet? Maybe when you’re traveling? Microsoft 365 Business provides online and offline access with automatic syncing of your work documents, giving you the flexibility to keep going even if you don’t have internet access, confident that your work is preserved.
When you are on the go, you’ll be able to stay connected and in sync. With Outlook, Skype, SharePoint, and OneDrive you can connect with people via email, instant messaging and online meetings anywhere you have an Internet connection. And, critically, switching among devices, accessing and editing files and connecting with your co-workers and customers—all of it is happening securely, keeping your information and your people protected.
How often do you find yourself working from home or while you are traveling? Do you have employees working from home or in remote offices? Microsoft 365 Business is built with mobility in mind, to enable you and your people to work effectively wherever you are. Or, think about this: we’ve all been in the situation where we’re away from the office and we need access to an Excel file or a presentation. That’s an awful feeling and it can stop you in your tracks. The point is, whether you’re sitting at your desk in your home office, or parked in your car, or working in an airport concourse, you want to have easy access to that document you were working on in your hotel room last night.
With Microsoft 365 Business, all your Office documents are kept up to date and accessible from anywhere—including your calendars, email, and contacts. You can create, edit, and share files anytime, from your PC, mobile phone, or tablet—with a consistent, easy experience.
