Is Office 365 a Good Option for My Growing Company?
Netedge Production – Thursday, April 11, 2013
It is hard to pick up a computer magazine these days without reading an article about how computing is moving to the cloud. One of the newest cloud services on the computer scene is Office 365 from Microsoft. This software suite offers many advantages over the desktop alternative. Companies offering computer services in San Jose are excited about all of the wonderful features of this cloud based software product.
No Need For Backups
Because Office 365 exists completely in the cloud, you do not have to worry about backing up your data. With the backing of Microsoft, you can be confident that your data will always be protected. No longer do you have to worry about if you actually saved that important document – with Office 365 you know that it is saved and will exist even if your entire computer crashes. This brings a sense of relief to companies offering who try to stress the importance of backups to their clients.
Subscription based Fees
The traditional Microsoft Office can cost you hundreds of dollars for each license. With Office 365 you pay a small monthly fee for each user at your company. This can spread the cost of ownership over a longer period of time, which can help with a company’s cash flow.
Email Hosting Included
Not only do you get the full suite of Office products, but you also get free email hosting included with your Office 365 subscription. Setting up a Microsoft Exchange email server can be quite expensive for a company, so Office 365 is a great way to reduce your costs.
Office 365 offers free updates at all times. No longer do you have to pay hefty fees for upgrades. With Office 365, upgrades are done in the background completely for free!
“Approximately 15 years ago our school was experiencing some major computer complications, so we found CEC… they promptly came out and took care of our issues. Over the years, we had some other minor work done by different companies which seemed to create more problems than they solved. So when we have some severe problems earlier this year, we called CEC again and once again were very impressed with how quickly they rescued us. Their technician was very knowledgeable and handled the job from start to finish so we didn’t have to. We highly recommend CEC for any computer service needs, and will not lose their business card this time!”
