Welcome to the 12th edition of Gary's frequently asked questions. With permission from Gary, we've created a series of answers to some of the most common problems in the IT industry that Gary has asked us for help with over the time we've been his IT consultant. We'll take it from here, thanks, Gary.
“What are the best features of office 365?”
Office 365 is pretty useful to have, Gary. First and foremost is the cloud, with office 365 you can work anywhere at any time without the need for remote desktop software or a VPN. Your data is secure and available when you need it, so your applications and data are easily accessible without the hassle of pen drives and CDs.
You also get a much bigger mailbox for storage and unified software for everyone. What that means is instead of multiple license keys and different versions of word or excel, everyone is on the same software and license, making it much simpler to handle and keep track of.
Office 365 also has some significant benefits for keeping things together and running smoothly on an operational level. Your calendars, diaries, email, contacts etc. are all synchronised across all platforms so no matter where you log in from, it will be updated on all devices! You could save a document on a desktop and continue working on it from your laptop, tablet or even your mobile phone.
Lastly, Office 365 has a flexible licensing fee so you can add or remove members as your business requires and cut costs by only providing users with access to the services they need, rather than a whole package fee.
