Why Office 365?

Why do I need those advance features when I can do my work with just simple features?

Productivity

  • You do not need it does not mean your employees do not need it.
  • The cloud model frees up resources to do important, strategic work rather than managing servers, licenses and upgrades.

Change of working behaviour

  • You do not change, but your staffs change over time, and the younger generation relies more on new technology.
  • Does the new generation want to carry a laptop to outstation when a tablet can do the same thing?

Change of technology

  • Technology changes and improves faster over time.
  • In 5 to 10 years time, there will be a transition from dedicated hosting to cloud hosting.
