Why are Businesses Flocking to Microsoft Office 365? The Office You Already Know - When and Where You Need It. Most of us have comfortably used the desktop version of Microsoft Office for years. With Office 365, you continue to use the same familiar office applications you have grown to love, but you can now access them anywhere, anytime, on any device. So, why are businesses flocking to Microsoft Office 365? Cross-platform Support Allows users to access their documents from PCs, Macs, iPhones, iPads, and even Android devices. This is important because more and more organizations are either issuing mobile devices or allowing employees to use their own mobile device. Whether online or off, at your desk or on the go, you’ll have access to Office 365. Flexible Deployment Options Some Cloud solutions require you to move everything to the cloud at once. Office 365 is built to allow companies the option to move users and services to the cloud in stages, when ready. You can move Exchange to the cloud first and continue to use already purchased Office suites. Less Expense As Your Business Grows As your business grows, the cost of additional on-premise hardware, licenses and a knowledgeable IT administrator can consume substantial resources. With Office 365, licenses can be easily added or removed from the cloud and hardware updates are no longer needed.
