ONLINE AND OFFLINE ACCESS
Out of all of the hassle that business owners face with Office 365, Office Online is surprisingly useful for many companies—as long as they have consistent internet access. Office Online is meant to compete with Google Docs and other online office platforms. It’s free, so you won’t have to worry about paying for licenses for your fleet of office computers, and it features handy tools to encourage collaboration. The best feature might be the default auto-save function, which could potentially save thousands of headaches down the road.
Included in many of the Office 365 plans is access to OneDrive, an online storage system for your most important files and documents. With OneDrive, you’ll have instant access to your files on any device at any time. One of the other awesome features of OneDrive is the ramped- up security to keep your data safe from hackers without losing any connectivity. With OneDrive, you can also share your documents with others quickly and easily which is sure to help boost productivity and collaboration.
You want to make sure that all of your business data is kept safe and secure which is why the Office 365 Enterprise plans include security features you would typically have to pay extra for elsewhere. Most notably in the Enterprise packages, you will have access to secure cloud storage using not only OneDrive, but also apps like Yammer and SharePoint. If you plan to store massive amounts of data in the cloud, choosing an Enterprise plan will give you the storage and most importantly, the security you need.
