Who are you in the work-from-home world? Are you the mom or dad going crazy with your kids interrupting your meetings? Are you the pet owner who is muting yourself because your dog won’t stop barking? Or the one wearing pajamas even though it’s 2 in the afternoon? Maybe you can relate to all of the above, but the truth is that it does not matter who you are in the work from home world, all that matters is: can you get your work done?

The COVID-19 virus outbreak has forced most of us to adapt to new ways of working, and I have noticed the impact of Microsoft Office 365 in my professional life more than ever. Microsoft Teams is my new phone and messaging system, as the platform allows me to talk, see, write, screenshare, collaborate, and the best of all: it allows me to mute myself or my coworkers whenever I want. What else could I ask for? But Microsoft Teams is not the only application I have been using within the Microsoft suite. In its’ 10th anniversary, the platform has recently seen multiple updates and improvements, leading it to become the most used office solution in the world.

Some of the benefits of using Office 365 are:

  • Real time collaboration – regardless of your location, you have web and mobile access to the entire Microsoft Suite; and the ability to collaborate in real time with team members by editing documents that automatically save your work
  • Integration – you can easily integrate with other Microsoft programs, allowing you to seamlessly move information from one platform to another
  • Security – you will know where your data is and who has access to it. In case of an emergency, the administrator can delete all of the data from a device that may have been compromised, without losing data integrity
  • Subscription Plans – companies can pay per user, with the flexibility of mixing and matching plans
  • Automatic Updates – with embedded automatic updates, there is no need to rely on employees to keep the application up to date
  • Communication – you can connect with anyone, anytime with comprehensive email services, video and audio conferencing, and instant chat

Here is an overview of what the current Office 365 features are, and how we can help you integrate it with your current environment:

  • Outlook – a do-it-all email +calendar application that allows you to totally manage your calendar, contacts and appointments
  • Hosted Services – through Exchange, Skype for Business, and SharePoint, each user receives 1 TB of cloud storage, allowing business to maintain their data in a safe and easily accessible platform
  • Office Application – SharePoint, Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, StaffHub, MyAnalytics, Flow, and Booking are some of the applications accessible through your subscription. They allow for real-time collaboration, data storage, employee scheduling management, breakdown of work productivity, and improvement of workflow
  • Collaboration Tools – Teams, Skype for Business, OneDrive, SharePoint, and Delve boards are applications that help team members to work and collaborate in real time from anywhere. These tools allow you to communicate quickly, store and retrieve data, build workflows, manage permissions and access, and create an employee intranet.
