If you’ve enjoyed the connectivity that Skype brings you at home, consider the benefits that it could bring to your business.

Microsoft has recently launched Skype for Business. It has the look and feel of the Skype we know and love with the security and call quality that businesses expect; all this in a flexible subscription service.

Connect with anyone – With Skype for Business you can instant message, make audio and video calls, hold online meetings of up to 250 people and share screens and documents. You can connect with any Skype user on any device; not just other Skype for Business subscribers.

Use with Microsoft Office – Because Skype for Business and Microsoft Office work together, you can seamlessly use your Office tools with Skype, e.g. you can share and discuss your documents, presentations, and spreadsheets.

Be secure and in control – All communications are protected by strong authentication and encryption and you can manage your team’s accounts and features.

Take it to the next level

To further enhance your business flexibility, add Office 365 that includes the full Office suite to your Skype for Business subscription plan.

As Office 365 is in the cloud, the familiar Office tools like Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook are available through your web browser. This gives you flexibility to connect, create, share and update in real time anywhere, whatever device you’re on.

With low-cost set-up, automatic upgrades, plenty of on-line storage and full scaleability, Office 365 and Skype for Business are the smart choice.

time-for-changeWhat does this mean for your business?

Using the 2003 platform after this date may put your business at risk. Why? Because your system will no longer receive software updates or security patches and this will leave you vulnerable to new threats and potentially in danger of non-compliance.

What should you do next?

Why not use this opportunity to take stock and harness the power of the Cloud? Move away from buying costly hardware and software licences and enjoy the benefits of software as a subscription service instead.

Adopting a Cloud based system is cost-effective, flexible and future-proof. The set-up costs are low, there are no extra maintenance costs and all upgrades are automatic and free.

Here at Communications Solutions UK we use Microsoft Office 365 and highly recommend it to our customers.  Here is what one of our customers has to say about the benefits of Office 365:

Office 365, with its ability to share data via the Cloud is transforming how we do things.  As I get my head around it, I can see more potential improvements and Cloud-based data storage is a revelation!”   Les, Horizon Satellites.

If you can see the benefit of accessing your applications, creating, editing and sharing your files on any device anywhere and at any time, then Office 365 is for you.

Call us now on 0118 920 9420 to discuss how we can help you make a smooth transition to the power of the Cloud through Microsoft Office 365.
