3 Reasons your Business should Upgrade to Office 365

You know your business will benefit from a cloud upgrade. But you just bought Microsoft Exchange email servers, SharePoint 2010, and Office 2010 a year or two ago and don’t want to scrap your investments in on-premise technology. You’ve also heard that Google Apps does all of the same things Office 365 does and is $1 cheaper per month.

So, is it really worth it to upgrade to the cloud-powered Office 365? Amaxra says: “Absolutely yes.” Here are our three best reasons you’ll benefit from Office 365:

  1. Work from anywhere on any device. Upgrading to Office 365 means you are not tied to a PC or even a laptop anymore. This article was written partly on laptop but completed on tablet thanks to the seamless integration of Office 365 and OneDrive cloud storage. Computerworld recently noted that for “all intents and purposes… new OneDrive plans [for Office 365] amount to unlimited online storage.”
  2. Google Apps will disappoint you. See how awful Google Sheets is compared to Microsoft Excel Online before you make the switch from Office 2010. That $1 per month you “save” by switching will quickly get spent on retraining and supporting your frustrated employees who will hate you for ruining their productivity.
  3. Upgrading is easy. Microsoft is making Office 365 for small and midsize businesses simpler and cheaper. As a Microsoft Partner, Amaxra can customize an Office 365 solution that can leverage your existing on-premise investments while gradually migrating you to the cloud.

Are you are ready to integrate the cloud into your business processes to see a dramatic increase in employee productivity?
