At EC Managed IT, we want to help keep your business running as smoothly as possible. That is why we offer a range of IT services, including helping businesses integrate and use Office365.

1. Scale Your Business

Since Microsoft Office365 gives businesses the ability to mix and match apps to create their own custom solutions for each user or department, it is able to provide the flexibility businesses need to quickly scale and grow. By using software that can scale up as needed, your team will be able to continuously work with tools they are familiar with.

2. Work from Anywhere

Office365 allows you to work from anywhere with an Internet connection, making it easy for you to access email, files, and Office programs from any location and any device in real time. This is particularly useful for companies with multiple locations or employees who either work remotely or who travel often.

3. Easier Collaboration

If you have employees that work together on tasks, documents, or presentations, Office365 allows everyone who is contributing to a document to edit the same version in real time, eliminating the need for multiple copies. Microsoft Office365 also offers versioning, just in case you need to go back to an older version.

Since Office365 is completely cloud based, businesses can have access to the latest versions at no additional charge and without the wait time. As soon as any new features or capabilities are added, you will have instant access to them.

5. Eliminates Hardware

Office365 eliminates the need for having onsite servers for your website, emails, or documents. This means that you will able to reduce both energy costs and the need for office space to store server hardware, creating substantial cost savings.
