Office 365, simply put, is all the traditional Office apps like Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and Outlook combined with cloud-based services that enhance users’ communications, sharing and analytics in a secure environment. It is all designed to enhance the user experience and accessibility allowing people to collaborate, work and connect across devices and locations.
As Office 365 is a subscription service it gives organisation the flexibility to purchase the exact services that, they need to suit their users’ roles and requirements. For example, a frontline worker on the move might only want online apps to use via a mobile device. Whereas a project manager might use the full suite to collaborate with many different colleagues, utilise a large storage capability and access to high performing analytics.
