When it comes to modern business, Microsoft has had a huge impact on how we run our business and how our employees’ work. Word documents, Excel spreadsheets and Outlook emails; they have all become a key part of how we communicate, work and run our business.
People who work on computers will be used to using Microsoft packages every single day. Over the years they have had to be downloaded onto a computer and then accessed locally from the hard drive of that computer. Everything that is created is then saved locally onto the computer and can only be accessed by that user, on that computer.
Whilst this has been the usual way of doing things for some time, thing are changing. This is all thanks to the introduction of the Cloud. The Cloud is a virtual space, where you can access and save what you want and need no matter where you are. This is made even better thanks to Microsoft Office 365. Now known as simply Microsoft 365, this Cloud based programme gives you the ability to access a range of the best that Microsoft has to offer, remotely.
This includes the key packages such as Word, Outlook and Excel. It also includes Teams, which is ideal for businesses. Teams helps you to arrange video calls, conference calls and instant messaging. You can also use it to share documents remotely and work together on projects.
Something that modern businesses with users based in a variety of places can benefit from.
