Is Office 365 just Microsoft Office in the cloud?

Short answer: No — it’s so much more! Learn how Office 365 adds security, mobility and speed to processes. Let us show you how combining familiar Office tools with powerful additions like Power BI, OneNote, and OneDrive can help your business manage and tackle more tasks.

As a small or midsize business, you need affordable and professional IT tools. Microsoft Office 365 gives you and your employees access to popular productivity applications, including Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint anytime, from virtually anywhere. You can also take advantage of built-in enterprise-grade services such as high-definition video conferencing, business-class email, and portals for file sharing.

Unlike a traditional Microsoft Office installation, Office 365 allows you to:

Use your Office apps on most any device including PC, Mac, tablet, and smartphone. That’s because your license is connected to you rather than to a specific workstation.

Choose to store your data locally and/or in the cloud, so you can increase data control, access, and sharing—and simplify regulatory compliance.

Collaborate with coworkers and clients using services not available with standard Office licenses, whether you’re in the office or on the go.

Establish a professional presence with built-in enterprise-class tools that make it easy to host HD web conferences, create a website, and set up business-class email.

Stay focused on customers and growing your business because we manage the servers, software updates, and malware protection.

To give you roaming access to all the tools in Office 365, you can use it on a variety of devices:

Use traditional Office software on your workstation: Install the applications available with Office 365 on your PC or Mac so that you can use local versions of the tools whether you’re online or offline.

Use Office Mobile with supported mobile devices: To use locally running versions of your Office 365 applications on supported mobile devices, download Office Mobile. Currently, you can run Office Mobile on Windows Phones, iPhones, and Android phones. For more information about the mobile devices supported by Office 365, please see the Office on mobile devices page

Use Office Web Apps with “non-supported” devices—or if you choose, any device with a supported browser: To access your Office 365 applications with a device that cannot run Office Mobile, use Office Web Apps. These are browser-based versions of your Office applications that run in the cloud. You can also use Office Web Apps to stay productive on a shared or public device when you don’t have your devices with you, or when they have run out of power

Connect easily with coworkers and clients using enterprise-level services

Collaborating with teammates and customers is easier with Office 365 because with it, you can access enterprise-grade email, calendars, and other tools whether you’re at your desk or on the go. As a result, you can:

Maintain one version of collaborative documents by allowing authorized users to create, edit, and review the same files in real time, including reports, proposals, emails, and budgets. No need to merge different file versions later. And you can share with confidence because you control who gets to see what.

Simplify collaboration with non-Office users by sending them the URL of the web page where you’ve saved your file. The file appears in a web browser with its formatting in place. The viewer can also filter and sort Excel workbooks and can play animations in PowerPoint presentations.

See the availability of coworkers, join online meetings, and IM from virtually any device including your PC, smartphone, and tablet using Microsoft Lync. You can also connect with your Skype contacts directly from Lync, so you don’t have to switch between applications to get phone numbers and addresses.

Make meetings more productive with one-click screen sharing. Work together more effectively by letting participants see your screen—or another participant’s screen—during an online meeting. Meeting participants can also view and use a shared white board and note space.

Stay connected with your colleagues and customers in other ways by posting and receiving social networking updates with your Newsfeed, and by using blogs and wikis to build team unity and publish information.
