Office 365

What is Microsoft Office 365?

Microsoft Office 365 is a Software as a Service (SaaS) subscription model that combines the traditional Microsoft Office desktop applications, Microsoft application services, and some new productivity services, all in one cloud-based subscription service.

The Modern Software Solution for Any Business:

Microsoft Office 365’s subscription-based service is paid either monthly or annually. This provides a cost-effective way for organizations to handle their production workloads.

Microsoft Office 365 also comes with email hosting and cloud storage space. This allows users to access their files online wherever and whenever they need to.

Since it’s a subscription offering, Microsoft Office 365’s desktop programs are updated automatically when a new version is available. With a current subscription, users get the latest versions, with security releases monthly and feature updates every six months.

Microsoft Office 365 comes with layered security measures, proactive data monitoring, privacy protection, and a 99.9% uptime service level agreement.

The tools in Microsoft Office 365 helps everyone in an organization be more productive while communicating more effectively, which lets employees get more work done.

From video chats to sharing images to sharing spreadsheets and files, to everyone in the organization having the ability to edit files in the cloud service on any WIFI-connected device. Microsoft Office 365 is the perfect software for any business.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Why choose Office 365 over Google Suite or another option?

    GSuite appealed to businesses that wanted easier collaboration and cloud-based tools. However, Office 365 now offers those features with its robust apps. You can now enjoy full document formatting, task management, email, scheduling, data analysis and visualization, and all the other benefits of Microsoft Office in a secure, integrated environment.

  • Is Office 365 affordable?

    Yes! Office 365 now uses a subscription model, so each user in your organization can access the software they need for a monthly rate. This is typically more cost-effective in the long run as you don’t need to cobble together a bunch of different apps at various price points. And starting at just $6 per user per month, Office 365 is quite affordable for most businesses.

  • What are some of the newer apps in Office 365?

    The original Office Suite included Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook. You could also install Publisher and OneDrive as needed.

    Today’s Office 365 includes SharePoint (secure document sharing), Access (database apps), Planner (task visualization), Project (project management), and many more helpful tools. Reach out to H Grant Support and we’d be happy to walk you through them all!

  • Is Office 365 secure?

    Yes! It uses proactive monitoring to detect security risks before they become an issue. Frequent software patches help fix any vulnerabilities.

    You can also customize user access levels and document permissions for your needs. Plus, your important documents and data get instantly backed up to secure cloud-based storage.
