Working full time (at HP), caring for a family (including 3 kids under 5 years old) and running my own side business; I don’t have the time to manage my own IT. That doesn’t mean that I have to settle for sub par email, no IM and no collaboration tool. Office 365 affords me the freedom to have enterprise class services on a shoe string budget. I am a company of one, but that doesn’t mean I don’t require enterprise class services. Since I am the whole company, my requirements are more than a normal person.
My favorite Office 365 feature is Exchange Online. I need to stay on top of my email and without Office 365 I don’t think that I would be able to do that. I can access my email from everywhere and have one mailbox that is always up to date no matter what device I choose to access it from. A typical day for me includes checking and replying to my emails from Outlook, smartphone, OWA and tablet. I can be in my Office, meeting a client for coffee or relaxing in bed and I am always up to date.
Being a user of Office 365 and a Microsoft Partner, I can speak from experience when I speak nothing but good words about Office 365. The many clients that I consult for love Office 365 as it’s a great balance of services provided and money spent.
Thanks for visiting and reading my posts. I am always looking for more ideas. Please comment or email me with what you would like to see.
