Microsoft Office 365

Microsoft Office 365 is the latest evolution in the Office products. It is the same software that you are used to, but it includes a host of other features that are enabled by the cloud.

Office 365 is great for businesses. It is now possible for you to host your Exchange emails, and SharePoint online in the cloud, rather than hosting on your own server. This reduces power costs, management effort and costs, means that you don't have to worry about updating software and hardware to new standards, and the uptime is 100%.

Office 365's cloud features automatically get the latest updates, so you can ensure that your emails and files are always protected and served in the best way.

Office 365 Features

The following features are common to many of the Office 365 plans:

  • Exchange Online: The next step for Exchange. The same functionality as hosted Exchange, but in the cloud. All of your emails are available 100% of the time from any device, all around the world.
  • Microsoft Office Applications: The most up to date desktop software for Microsoft Office is always available for download through your Office 365 account.
  • Online Conferencing: Microsoft Lync for inter-office communication, remote communication, conferencing, and collaboration.
