Real-World Ways OneDrive Makes You More Productive Than Google Drive

An observation one of our consultants made about companies choosing between either Microsoft Office 365 or Google G-Suite is the lack of real-world comparison. Neither the entrepreneur at a startup nor the overworked staff at a small-to-midsized business (SMB) have the time and resources to install both Microsoft and Google cloud productivity solu...

BYOD Your Business with Microsoft's Intune & Enterprise Mobility + Security

It's unreal to think that only ten years ago most mid-to-large enterprise companies were still handing out BlackBerry smartphones to significant numbers of their workforces. But the key reason those companies liked the BlackBerry was its security and management capabilities outstripped all competitors. Although many Millennial workers cannot imagi...

Enhancing productivity with the new dictation feature in Office 365

Microsoft added an optional dictation add-in for their key Office 365 apps, appropriately called "Dictate," in the summer of 2017. The add-in enabled you to dictate documents in Word, compose emails in Outlook, and add notes and other text into PowerPoint slides using your voice. It was a free add-in but came with a caveat: as part of the Microsof...

Why the Windows Recovery feature is a beautiful thing

My computer was acting up. It's the powerful Surface Book by Microsoft, a 2-in-1 hybrid laptop and tablet tuned for high-performance computing. So, it was unusual when I noticed that Outlook, an app that is an absolute necessity for our business, kept gobbling up memory and I need to crash and restart. Not only was the sluggish performance in Outl...

How Office 365 helps your business be GDPR compliant

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new privacy law that applies to the digital data shared with citizens in the European Union (EU). The GDPR law is designed to protect EU citizens' personal data, wherever it is stored, and applies to any organization responsible for controlling or processing that data. That means starting on the 2...

3 reasons switching from Google Docs to Office 365 is a good idea

For over a decade, Google has tried to win over Microsoft Office users. The one advantage the Google G Suite of productivity apps once had over Microsoft Office was simpler file sharing and better real-time collaboration on documents. By storing Google Documents in the cloud-based Google Drive, users could in one click share the document with anyo...

Unlock the hidden value of SharePoint with a company Intranet

Every company using either the Microsoft Office 365 Business Premium or E3 to E5 plans have SharePoint Online included. Office apps are often fundamental to the success and productivity of many companies. But so many of them that would never consider sending an email without Outlook or creating a spreadsheet without Excel ignore the business-criti...

How Skype For Business Changes the Way People Work

While much of the attention related to "work from anywhere" corporate initiatives is focused on mobile apps, the majority of employees still work in an office. Even with the ever-growing number of Millennials in the workplace preferring to use their personal smartphones over a desk phone, most businesses still need a phone system to take and make ...

How to fire up your business with KPI displays

It's reassuring to visit a company's offices where rather than TVs showing 24-hour cable news (or worse), they are displaying constantly-updated key performance indicator (KPI) metrics. There is something special about the feeling of walking into the common areas of a company and seeing large monitors prominently display their corporate KPIs. It g...
