Planning for bad weather

The entire country seems to be grinding to a halt with all the bad weather we’ve been having recently. This has a massive impact on businesses as employees struggle to get to work, resulting in lost revenue and potentially dangerous commutes.

This needn’t be the case. Cloud solutions allow you to do more than ever remotely, whether that’s from your sofa or a hotel room. As long as you have internet access, you can retain not only your communications systems, as we discussed last time, but also access all the files you need and collaborate in real-time on documents with your team.

So say you’re snowed in, the roads are a mess and you can’t get to the office, but still need to have a document you have been collaborating on finished for the following day. In the past this would have spelt trouble. You and your colleagues would have had to duplicate files and then spend the day bouncing various versions of the document back and forth, trying to track changes as you went. Microsoft Office 365 changes this by giving you remote access to files on a whole range of devices and updating documents in real-time. This means that you can truly collaborate on documents in real time, without worrying about managing multiple versions!

Microsoft Office 365 includes all the office applications you’re used to, along with 25gb of cloud storage per user, a 50gb hosted mailbox and 24/7 support. You’ll receive updates to the all applications as they are released, so Office 365 truly is a future proof solution.
