Productivity software is the backbone of many organizations, providing employees a way to communicate daily both within the organization and without.
Creating a culture of excellence is possible when the tools that your teams are using are well-suited to the particular task, and Microsoft Office 365 offers the best-in-class productivity suite that is used throughout the world. Lynchpin Consulting is a Microsoft Silver Partner, meaning we have a deep understanding of the variety of Microsoft products and how they can benefit organizations throughout their life cycle. Whether you’re ready to make the leap from the standard on-premise Microsoft Office suite to Office 365, or are implementing Office for the first time our professionals can help you determine the best workflow and tools for your particular needs.
Mobile Access to Information
The workforce in general today is incredibly mobile, and workers want to know that they can access the tools that they need to get their job done regardless of their physical location. Cloud-based tools such as Office 365 provide the ultimate in compatibility, as they can be installed on up to 5 different machines plus mobile phones and tablets for each named user. This flexibility suits the way business happens today – at the ball field, dance studio or in a coffee shop.
Many Office 365 subscriptions also come bundled with OneDrive, Microsoft’s cloud-based document storage solution. Bringing Office 365 online for your business means you’re providing employees and customers with a quick and easy way to collaborate on projects – the OneDrive integration even includes real-time editing of live documents, something that cloud storage competitors such as DropBox are unable to boast. Skype for Business provides a real-time collaboration option that is global in nature and incredibly effective for both mobile and desktop conversations.
Microsoft data centers are some of the most secure in the world, and enterprises around the world trust Microsoft to protect their email, documents and networks. Malware and virus scans are conducted for each file and message that comes through their data centers, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. When you need industry-standard certifications or need to meet federal, state and local government standards – Microsoft Office 365 is a clear winner.
One of the big benefits for business owners is that the Office 365 model provides for a flexible payment schedule. There is no massive upfront investment in the platform, and you’re able to spread the cost of the software over a period of years with an affordable monthly fee. Upgrades are included in the cost, so you’re not getting hit with a variety of additional fees after your go-live, and you utilize (and pay for!) only the services and seat licenses that you truly need – and no more – so you’re able to quickly scale up as needed.
