Office 365—The Most Versatile and Secure Office Ever

Microsoft Office 365 is a cloud-based service that’s designed to help meet your customers’ needs for robust security, reliability and user productivity. It delivers the power of cloud productivity, helping them save time and money—and free up valued resources.

Office 365 combines the familiar Microsoft Office desktop suite (Word, Excel, One Note, Outlook and PowerPoint) with cloud-based versions of Microsoft’s next-generation communications and collaboration services:

  • Microsoft Exchange Online
  • Microsoft SharePoint Online
  • Office Online
  • Skype for Business Online

Three trends are driving the push towards digital transformation to the cloud.

A 2015 Techaisle survey amongst SMB companies found that 80% of small business employees and 55% of workers in midmarket firms require mobile access to company data and the applications that make this possible.
