Benefits of Microsoft 365 for BusinessIT Resource
The last 18 months have turned our world upside down, leaving many business owners with the need for simple, secure solutions to help transform business and get things done from almost anywhere. Whether you’re adapting to remote work, serving your customers in new ways, or exploring different business models, business owners today are looking for solutions to effectively and securely reach these goals.
In today’s market, the solution that many turn to is Microsoft 365. The ability to work more securely from almost anywhere with a single, cost-effective solution that includes online meetings and Office applications is appealing to many. And, with three different plans to choose from, there’s most likely an option to suit your needs.
Because we’ve worked with businesses of all sizes and industries, we’ve been introduced to a variety of challenges, both unique and common, but the end goal is always the same – to work more productively in a secure environment. In addition to the issues that businesses face on a regular basis, COVID had a significant impact on the way we work. In fact, 80% of full time workers expect to work from home at least 3x per week after COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted.
Top challenges for today’s businesses
While the working environment may have changed, the challenges that most businesses are facing have not.
The ability to work remotely. As we witnessed over the last year, the world can change very quickly, and businesses of all sizes need easy and secure ways to work and serve their customers, regardless of whether they’re in the office or in a remote location.
Strong security features. While no business is exempt, small businesses are especially attractive targets for cybercriminals, and protecting sensitive information becomes even more challenging when people work remotely.
Reduce costs & complexity. As businesses adjust to an uncertain economy and marketplace in a post-COVID-19 world, you need ways to work more efficiently without adding expensive, complicated technology.
Support growth. The ability to foster growth and support unforeseen changes to your business requires solutions that can extend easily and affordably, right along with your organization as it changes and grows – without requiring significant up-front investment.
