5 Reasons East Bay Small Business Are Moving to Office 365

Jul 12, 2018

We are seeing more and more Oakland small businesses finally ditching their on-prem Exchange servers and migrating their email to Office 365. 

There are many benefits of migrating your business’s e-mail to Office 365.

Office 365 is a cloud-based productivity suite that enables businesses to save time and increase efficiency.

Here are 5 Reasons:

1. Access to the latest Office applications

 Office 365 is a subscription-based service which means you automatically receive updates to the latest versions of Microsoft Office. This increases user productivity and reduces your total cost of ownership.

2. Reduced maintenance costs

Office 365 is hosted by Microsoft which means you no longer have to manage servers, replace hardware or purchase expensive Microsoft Exchange licenses. A single server can cost thousands of dollars.

3. Work from any device

Your employees no longer have to be chained to their desks. Office 365 enables your employees to access their data across phones, tablets and laptops.

4. Data Loss Prevention 

Your data and documents are vital to your business’s survival. Microsoft offers enterprise class governance and control offers you the piece of mind that you will never lose the data you use.

5. Work Online 

Office 365 is designed to make your workflows more streamlined and collaborative. Changes can be made to documents in real time without having to download the document. Multiple employees can collaborate on the same document in real time.
