3 reasons you should be using Office 365.
We, as businesses, have shifted from making things on our own, by ourselves, in our office full of cubicles (cube farm), to collaborating with our teammates and customers, virtually, in real time, on any device, from different locations.
The world of working at one desktop, one office, from 9-5 is changing. Your finance people may be in a different building, in a different city or country. And they’re now working on tablets and phones, from a doctor’s office, a coffee shop, or in the car after dropping the kids off at school.
This isn’t just within your organization. It’s the way your customers and partners are working, too.
More importantly, your competitors are working this way. If you’re not in the cloud, the divide continues to grow between you and your competitors. They are moving to the cloud, and we don’t want you to be left behind. You’ll want to be using what your customers and your partners are using to stay in the game.
Real-time, anytime, anywhere collaboration and co-creation is ever increasing.
When we think about productivity and how to provide the best solution for you. There are three core principles that we and Microsoft consider when looking at Office 365. These are the same core principles that we will use to help define success as your organization adopts Office 365.

Work Together – Collaboration
Office 365 gives you the flexibility to easily access and edit documents in real time across devices and platforms (so you and your team are always working with one version of the truth), combined with the collaboration boost that comes from knowing you can share documents securely and hold productive meetings from multiple locations.
Whether your collaboration needs are simple or advanced, Office 365 makes working together smooth, secure and productive.
Office 365 is your productivity tool that’s powered by the cloud.
Installed on local devices so you still have control. Your private information and proprietary assets are not in the public either for everyone to access. They are secure and you can control who sees those files.
