As a mid-market or enterprise business owner or IT manager you might question whether or not your business really can benefit from using Microsoft Office 365. What is the business value you’ll actually get out of the product? Will you see any real cost savings by using it? The short answer is, yes.

Customers are moving to Office 365 because it offers more than just a way to work collaboratively from anywhere in the world. Not only can users manage projects, co-author documents and communicate in real time from virtually anywhere in the world, but they can do it all with the same Microsoft tools they already know, knowing they have 24/7 reliability and enterprise-class security.

Office 365 simplifies IT management while increasing productivity. Your IT team can save time by controlling service configuration and user access while Microsoft handles your routine server administration tasks. All of this is done securely, with server-level antivirus, enterprise-grade reliability, DR capabilities and geo-reduntant datacenters, with a guaranteed 99.9% uptime, resulting in higher productivity and efficiency for your business.

More than business and productivity value, you will see significant cost savings with Office 365. By moving software and services off local machines and onto Microsoft-hosted servers, you can
lower hardware overhead costs, decrease electricity costs, enable IT budget predictability, and simplify IT system management.
