We’re here to help you streamline your business and turn it into a lean, mean, scalable machine. In the modern world, the only way to do this is with comprehensive software applications configured to suit your business needs. As a Microsoft 365 consultancy, we’re able to help you implement cost-effective and simple solutions using Microsoft’s range of famous business software, 365 (formerly Office 365). Helping you save time, save money and grow.
Why Microsoft 365?
With a sea of nearly endless business software solutions, just why should you choose 365? We think there’s many reasons for this:
Easy to Use
Microsoft are up there with the best when it comes to designing simple user interfaces. After all, they practically wrote the book on it with the Windows operating system. Their range of applications are no different, you’ll all be familiar with MS Word, well we think all the other applications are just as good from a usability standpoint.
Comprehensive and Plentiful Integrations
Microsoft 365 applications integrate seamlessly with one another. As well as being able to integrate with each other, due to their large market share, there is a high chance any 3rd party programs you use will integrate with your Microsoft applications. This minimises the need for complex development which may be required when integrating other softwares.
How did we become so well versed in 365? It’s simple, the Microsoft community rocks. With millions of software users, endless forums, Facebook groups and reddit posts; troubleshooting your Microsoft problems often is a breeze. You don’t need outsourced consultants with fancy CV’s to make changes to your applications. Normally some basic knowledge and a quick google search is often enough to answer your questions. When you do need a little more assistance, we’re at hand to help.
Licensing and Scope
Whilst we’re not going to get into the full complexities of licensing. We think the Microsoft 365 licensing offers extremely good value for money. Starting at £3.80 per month, Microsoft 365 offers a comprehensive set of applications – all under a single license. For the price, we don’t think there’s any software that offers better value for money.
Regular Updates and New Features
As Microsoft is one of the biggest companies in the world, they’re always bringing out new features and regular updates. 365 applications are incredibly feature rich; we’ve personally found that you can generally do everything that you can think of. If you can’t, chances are this feature is in development. With a mighty budget and a clear market leader, Microsoft are always at the forefront of development.
Security and Access
Microsoft 365 applications are extremely secure. When you’re dealing with personal and sensitive data, its vital to keep your clients protected, and your business. Often you’ll have documents and data within your business that you only want certain users to access. With 365 configuring access to certain users is simple, keeping your business safe from malicious or accidental damage.
Experts are Everywhere
This isn’t a niche software package where there’s only a handful of people that understand it. When using Microsoft software you’re able to access literally thousands of experts worldwide. This means the cost of consultancy goes down significantly and you’re able to access their advice and services in a manner that suits you. Whether it be using a Microsoft 365 consultancy like us or even using a freelancer from overseas. Microsoft software gives you the flexibility your business needs.
