A few months ago, I wrote to you about Microsoft’s major price reduction for Office 365. At that time,
I predicted that many of our clients would take advantage of this great opportunity and move from an on-premise Exchange server to the Microsoft hosted environment. In the past few months we have successfully moved over 2000 users to the Office 365 offering. If you haven’t taken a look or considered Office 365 – now is the time.
Here are three reasons you should switch to Office 365:
Low Cost – Office 365 now starts at $4 per month/user. Small business can get access to Exchange, SharePoint and Lync in addition to the core Office productivity applications for only $8 per month. Larger businesses can get Office Professional Plus 2013 and email archiving and more for only $20 per month. No longer do you need to purchase a server, Microsoft OS, Exchange and configuration costs every few years.
Updates & Maintenance – What else do you get with your Office 365 subscription? An IT department. With Office 365, Microsoft takes care of all the dirty work so you don’t have to. Updates, patches and new releases (i.e. 2013) just happen in the background without you needing to worry about it. You get the benefits of using Office without any of the headaches of updating and maintaining it.
Accessibility – Office 365 lives in the cloud. That means you have access to Word, Excel, Outlook, SharePoint, Lync, and other Microsoft Office tools from anywhere you can get a Web connection, and from virtually any device – Windows or Mac desktops and laptops, Android devices, iPhones, iPads and other SmartPhones and tablets.
Office 365 is a solid service proving tremendous bang for the buck. So it won’t be easy to beat the value it brings to the table. Want to learn more? Call me directly to discuss how Office 365 can benefit your business.
