Office 365 for Business Improves Collaboration & Communication
Office 365 for Business makes it easier than ever to communicate with your team and for your employees to share and access information, through the cloud. Using SharePoint, your business can create a password protected portal where your employees can quickly access the information and documents they need, from anywhere they have Internet access. Once changes are completed, you can track the progress and add notes so that everyone in the group can quickly determine what has been changed.
Another benefit of having all of your business documents in a central location is that every member of your team has access to the most up-to-date information and documents. If one of your employees makes changes to a document from their computer at home and then another member of the team views the file from their phone, they will see the most up-to-date document. And with OneDrive, your business has ample online storage for storing all of your critical business information.
