Collaborate and Achieve More

Let your teams work together effectively with Outlook, with the functionality to create shared mailboxes. Teams can work together in real-time, managing common service mailboxes, ‘sales@’, ‘support@’, ‘accounts@’. Create shared calendars with customisable permissions so that you can be in control of who sees what information. Office 365’s business class email offers a 50GB mailbox, and the ability to attach files of up to 25MB.

For file sharing, SharePoint gives your teams full access to the documents they require; and includes real-time document editing. This increased accessibility ensures unparalleled unified collaboration among your employees, freeing time to concentrate on providing the best possible service to the most important part of your business- your customers!

Work Anywhere

A growing need for technology to be available around the clock and across multiple devices, ensures that your business continues to be productive and efficient. We all know how frustrating it can be when you remember a pressing task that should have been completed before you left work. But, as long as you can access the internet on your phone or tablet, you can easily resume working on a document or reply to emails even after you’ve left the office.

With a Business Premium license, apps can be downloaded and accessed on up to 5 additional smartphones and tablets, allowing your employees the fluidity and the flexibility to work anywhere, and at any time.

Safeguard Your Data

Store your data securely on the cloud, instead of your device – allowing your device to perform at its best, safe in the knowledge that your data is protected. Office 365 has powerful built-in security features to safeguard your sensitive data, and you can stay in complete control of this on the cloud to meet your compliance needs. Microsoft’s data-protection tools work together so that you will always know where your data is and who has access to it.

The low-cost solution

All these benefits of Office 365 come at a per user monthly fee; which means that you can gain big business advantages for a low monthly cost. We offer a number of packages to suit the needs of any business size. There are no costly set up fees, expensive upgrades or lengthy set-up times. What’s more, as a Microsoft Silver Partner, we’re offering up to 10% off Microsoft RRP prices; meaning you could be paying just £3.40 per user per month for our Business Essentials package.
