Microsoft 365 (formerly known as Office 365) is a suite of cloud solutions that includes popular tools such as Outlook, OneDrive for Business, Word, and more. The service provides businesses with all the tools they need to collaborate and thrive in an increasingly cloud driven business climate.
Microsoft 365 is the name for the suite of productivity and collaboration tools from Microsoft (formerly known as Office 365). It includes the popular apps we're all familiar with - Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook and OneNote, as well as Microsoft Teams, and business class email and calendaring from 365 Exchange.
Impelling's Managed IT Support service includes Microsoft 365 Business Premium as standard, and as a Microsoft Silver Partner, Impelling are able to configure advanced cyberthreat detection and closely integrate the Microsoft cloud services with other services and applications to provide extended functionality - such as automatic email signatures that pull contact details from the central database of your staff within Microsoft 365.
By using Office 365, staff at your business are able to save files from popular MS 365 apps such as Word, PowerPoint and Excel in the cloud. Accessing the Microsoft 365 cloud can be done using OneDrive for Business which is an application that synchronises files onto your computer, laptop or mobile device. Storing files in the cloud this way means that your files are easily accessible on any device, from any location - great if you need to make a few quick edits to a spreadsheet from your phone, or if you move to a new computer.
Moving beyond OneDrive for Business, Microsoft SharePoint takes cloud document storage to the next level. If you think of OneDrive as a personal place to keep personal files, SharePoint is all about using the Microsoft cloud to share and collaborate. Coworkers, or even external guests can open the same file at the same time, allowing people to collaborate on the same document in real time.
These features are available as part of our Managed IT Support service. To help you make the best use of them, our team of expert technicians is on hand to help get your company set up and using Microsoft's cloud solutions to increase productivity and boost efficiency.
Alongside documents, notes, spreadsheets, and presentations communication between people within your organisation is a big part of the cloud solution offered by Microsoft 365. Outlook online, and the Outlook desktop application offer business focused emailing and calendaring capability. Threat protection against malware and cyber threats is built in with Exchange Online Protection, and our Managed IT Service builds on this further by integrating virus screening and anti phishing technology.
Beyond email, Microsoft Teams offers real time chat features, video calling and a whole suite of collaboration features, perfect for working remotely, from home or with others who are outside your organisation.
