October 6th, 2015 Matt McCue

Office 365 is a stable and reliable method for your business to reduce the overhead costs associated with email and employee communication. Save money each month by using Office 365 for your business.

Businesses today use email as a primary form of communication because it’s reliable, efficient, and user-friendly. The costs associated with email differ greatly depending on how the business has set up their email servers. One of the ways that a business can reduce the operational costs of email is by utilizing a cloud-based service such as Office 365 by Microsoft.

Office 365 is a software bundle that includes Skype for Business, Outlook, and a few other applications that your employees can use to increase productivity. This article will discuss the benefits of switching email service to Office 365.

In order to fully understand the benefits of using Office 365 for email service, let’s take a look at a fictitious company called ABC Auto Sales. The business has 10 employees, each with their own email address, which is hosted by a server kept in their office.

Nobody at ABC Auto Sales has experience with servers, which means that they use a managed service provider to maintain the operational status of the server, which costs money. If the server happens to fail, an IT consultant service call to their location is an additional expense which they incur. If the server’s warranty has expired, there may be more costs that ABC Auto Sales will have to pay out to get their email service back online. And during all this time, the business cannot send or receive emails - which is costig the company lost revenue and/or damaged reputation.

With Office 365 ,the email system is hosted in “the Cloud”, which means there are no physical machines that ABC Auto Sales has to maintain. All service and maintenance is done by Microsoft technicians from their data centre, and as long as the business has an internet connection, they’re able to access their email - from any location worldwide.

Microsoft offers a reliable email service without the expenses of maintaining and upgrading servers or data centres, and the email system has already been adopted by countless businesses, from small operations to enterprise-level organizations. It’s available to use on any smart device using Windows Mobile, iOS, or Android; and on Mac or PC computers.
