CoopSys: Office 365
Office 365 is the flagship Software as a Service platform from Microsoft. It is much more than just MS Office in the cloud, but a whole storage and collaboration suite that can improve workflows and ultimately enhance service delivery.
What is Office365?
At its heart, Office 365 provides two key elements that a traditional on premise server would provide:
1. Storage space for documents in SharePoint
2. A hosted Exchange email platform
In addition, there are many other key applications that are available:
Cloud version & full local version of MS Office (Word, Excel etc)
Additional subscriptions to cover products such as Visio, Project
Skype for Business – Video Conferencing, Instant messaging & even PBX replacement
& a host of third party add-ons!
The Office 365 suite means you are no longer contained to the traditional, but can communicate, collaborate and engage with internal and external stakeholders in a more flexible, effective and involving way.
The solution can also be used in conjunction with on premise servers or Microsoft Azure which can provide Active Directory and a range of encryption and security options.
Is it secure?
Security is a concern to every organisation, now more so than ever. Office 365 is one of the most secure cloud platforms available and meets some of the highest standards possible. Coupled with Azure Rights Management, the security levels and options are comprehensive; often surpassing what can be achieved on premise. Our team will ensure that every aspect meets your requirements.
Financially backed SLA
Services are available with a financially-backed 99.9% uptime service level agreement.
Office 365 is extremely competitive given all that is included, with a range of packages and tariffs to suit all organisations, large or small.
Non-Profit organisations can also benefit from Microsoft’s donation program, with reduced costs and free packages.
