Microsoft 365 LogoHere at Flair 4 IT we work closely with each and every one of our clients to understand their business needs and, deliver IT solutions that suit those needs. Whether that be on site hardware, offsite cloud solutions or a combination of the two.

In many recent projects we have used Microsoft Office 365 as part of the solution so, we thought we’d put together an article outlining just what it is, the features it provides and what organisations it tends to suit.

What is Microsoft Office 365?

Microsoft Office 365 is a solution that combines the advantages of Microsoft’s cloud based suite including; Microsoft SharePoint, Microsoft Lync & Microsoft Exchange. It also provides access to the full Microsoft Office suite.

Combining functionality from each of these solutions and, delivering it over the internet as a cloud based service means Microsoft Office 365 is available to all of your users, whether they are out on the road, working from home or, based in one of your offices in the UK or overseas.

What features does Microsoft Office 365 offer?

There are different levels of Microsoft Office 365 subscription and, as with anything the higher the subscription level the more features you get. The following are features that are the core of Microsoft Office 365.

  • Email functionality
  • Shared calendars
  • Online file sharing (including version control)
  • Instant messaging
  • Online voice and video calls

Is Microsoft Office 365 right for you?

Microsoft Office 365 isn’t the right solution for all organisations and we always recommend that you have a detailed conversation with an IT expert who can review your existing IT infrastructure. They can then recommend if Microsoft Office 365 is the best solution or, if there is an alternative that would deliver to your needs even more effectively.
