Office 365

Office 365 is good for your business.  Being in the computer support business since the beginning of my career(about 20 years now) has given me some insight into the usual challenges facing business on a daily basis.

As a small business, you have limited resources – not enough TIME in the day. You just cannot afford for things to go wrong – it costs so much more to get back to work if things break down.

Computers are a part of this – gone are the days which you get away with just faxing and calling clients and suppliers on the phone.

EMAIL!

Love or hate it, it’s here to stay. Microsoft Outlook is the de-facto standard for reading your email. Combined with email are electronic documents like your Excel and Word documents. Every business has to have these as basics. And as the days of faxing and traditional voice calls are going the way of the dinosaur, so too is the old way of emailing and document management.

  • Email down? Used to be that this was tolerable for clients and suppliers. Now? Happens often enough, they’ll just go to your competition.
  • Not responding to email fast enough? Ditto!
  • Documents getting lost or in the wrong format? Again, your recipients just don’t have time for you to resend.
  • Can’t access email and documents while on the move? There goes that client who needs someone to respond fast.
  • Is your email landing up in junk mail once too often?

This article provides a good analysis of the impact of email downtime.   Needless to say, your facilities need to current, reliable and most of all, MANAGEABLE!
