Modern Business is about more than the latest technology and gear. It's about seeing new possibilities and knowing how to make them real for your team, your partners and your customers. It's about...
- Business Anywhere
- Safeguarding Your Business
- Growing Efficiently
- Connecting With Customers
Office 365 has the applications you know, always up to date and accessible from virtually anywhere. Run your own business easy way with office 365. Get everything you need to run your business anytime, anywhere.
For small and midsize businesses (SMBs), technology can make the difference in driving your company ahead, setting you apart from your competitors, whatever size they may be.
Whatever you can do in the office, you can now do just as well on the go. Flexible tools that fit the modern worker's needs make for higher employee satisfaction.
Office 365 keeps people connected to one another, and to documents and data. Intuitive tools for online meetings, file storage and sharing, and team collaboration make it easy to connect and collaborate with colleagues whenever, wherever.
Communicate the way you want. Fast. Effortlessly.
Lync puts communication information and channels right at your fingertips. You don't have to wonder or take extra steps to figure out if someone is available to chat. Lync federation extends unified communications securely over the Internet to customers, suppliers, and partners using Lync or Skype.
Lync also gives you lots of different ways to communicate, so you can choose the best way to connect with someone. Often you need to connect quickly and you can do that with instant messaging. Lync provides world-class real-time chat so you can reach your co-workers and get instant responses to your questions. So next time you need an answer right away, instead of sending an email, which can be easily overlooked in the chaos of the inbox, use Lync to send an IM.
Instant messaging is great, but sometimes you just want to pick up the phone and talk. With Lync, you can use your computer to make voice calls to other Lync users without having to pick up a phone and dial any digits. All you have to do is click.
What about those times when you want an even more personal and dynamic form of communication, like video, in which you can see the expressions and gestures of the other person on the line? Lync gives you that option too. With a single click, Lync provides HD video calling capabilities to other Lync users so you can see whom you're talking to in full 1080p HD quality video.
Lync Enables Productivity
Productivity is all about working effectively on documents with teammates. And Lync gives you several ways to do this. You can share your desktop or a PowerPoint presentation, start a virtual whiteboard session, or share other applications.
Video conferencing is another great collaboration tool that can boost productivity and Lync makes it easy to use. Lync lets you connect with whom you need to, also, even if they're outside of your organization and even if they don't have Lync.
Whatever platform or device you favor, you're covered. Lync makes communicating easier by giving you a consistent and familiar experience across devices, including Windows PCs, Windows Phones, iPhones, iPads, Macs, and Android smartphones and tablets.
When it comes to cyber-attacks, no business is too small to be targeted. But sometimes, the biggest threats to your data aren't from hackers, phishers, or viruses. They are the little bad habits that we tend to form in the day-to-day chaos of running a business.
Losing Your Unprotected Devices- Consider installing a device tracking app, password protecting your device and always keeping your valuable data back up in cloud. Office 365 and Windows Intune allow you to remotely lock access, wipe data and reset pins in the event of technology going missing.
Choosing Weak Password- This can be risky business. Consider using programs that randomly generate and store passwords. Or, have enforceable policies in place that require employees to change password regularly.
Letting Employees Leave With Sensitive Data- Even happy employees could have proprietary information on their devices when they leave the company. Provide work only devices to your staff and have a policy around protecting data
Emailing Everything- Avoid attaching important files or pasting sensitive data directly into an email. Use secure cloud services so you can password protect access. And now that Office 365, up to date spam and virus protection is built-in to protect your email.
Microsoft builds resiliency and recovery capabilities into its products and technologies, from server software to the cloud, to PC's and devices. So you have the peace of mind that your systems are up and running and you are open for business even if the unexpected happens. Knowing that your data is safe, you can focus on other ways to protect your business.
And many more things...
