5 Reasons Why Your Business needs an FREE Office 365 Assessment:
Office 365 has changed the business IT environment dramatically – it is a revolution in the way business can gain access to their core Microsoft Office Products and requires a full review of the current IT environment & procedures. If done correctly though, an assessment of the technology in your business should be quick and painless and yield you with some valuable information saving you investment, time and money.
Here are our top 5 reasons why your business would benefit from an IT Assessment for Office 365:
Find immediate areas for improvement – If you’re thinking of upgrading your systems there may be a better way to run your business IT to suit the current business trends of “Bring your own Device”, “Multiple Device Access & Syncing” and “Business Systems Remote Access”. Office 365 is a great solution for these major drivers.
Budget for longer-term areas of improvement or find savings – An assessment may reveal out-dated hardware, capacity issues and key risks of failure to your business. With an IT Assessment ou can then plan and budget to address these areas in the future, instead of having to react tomorrow to an unforeseen full disk. Office 365 may smooth your expenditure requirements or may be significantly cheaper than upgrading your current IT systems.
Know what software is on your computers – If your employees are able to install software onto your computers, do you know what they have been installing? An audit will reveal if your computers have illegal file sharing software or other programs that may be relevant to their hobbies, not their work (e.g. share trading).
Security & Backup checks – as an outsider we can provide you with feedback, recommendations & alternatives you may not be aware off , that give you peace of mind for your business systems & data security.
Verify your current Systems – Your business will have certain assets & licences listed for accounting purposes which should be reviewed and recorded. That way you can understand what licences, hardware and user requirements you have should you choose to the Office 365 route.
