The BigLaunch on BigRock: Microsoft Office 365 Now Available!
We have some exciting news and we can hardly contain ourselves! Microsoft Office 365, (a MUCH requested product) is now live on our platform!
I would like to call Office 365 the OG (original) suite of apps. Microsoft Word and Excel take me back to my school days – some 15 odd years ago. It was one of the first things we were taught in our Computers class, on a local computer. This original suite of applications today, is no longer tied to a desktop. Now, Office 365 can be accessed over the cloud, making them even more useful for productivity.
Why did we decide to launch Office 365? Apart from being a popular request from our customers, Office 365 fits right in with our existing product portfolio which caters to you – our customers. The product is also very integral to businesses and affordable.
What is Office 365?
Office 365 is a fantastic suite of cloud-based apps or tools that works great for teams and businesses by enhancing productivity and collaboration. Office 365 tools include Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook for Email, Calendar and more!
How useful is Office 365?
As a writer, I use Microsoft Word ALL the time! What’s even better is that because it is a cloud-based app, I can access it from anywhere, at anytime and from any device. This is especially useful when I start writing a blog in the office and want to continue editing from my cab ride home. Additionally, I can get my team to share inputs and feedback in real time, on the same document, collaboratively.
This is just an example of one of the tools from the suite. Office 365 offers upto 20+ apps for communication and collaboration along with cloud storage of up to 1TB!
The two C’s – collaboration & communication are key to productivity for every working individual. For many organisations and companies, Office 365 is the de facto standard for a productivity software.
Here’s all that you can do with Office 365:
