Email isn’t any simpler in the Cloud!
By moving your business email to the cloud you can rest easy, knowing that the experts who created the software are taking care of the tricky maintenance, while your team keeps control of your company’s capabilities and of how your employees use features. You can spend more time on the core operations that build business value rather than keeping up with persistent hardware maintenance.
Software updates and fixes are delivered automatically as soon as they are released, and Exchange Online is always first in line for updates. Although the management and updates are fully automated, you are still in control when you need to be with the Exchange admin centre.
With Office 365 you have many options, so we have created a clear plan comparison chart, where you can explore which option (including Exchange Online options) might be best for your company. Register HERE to get your free copy!

Skype and Skype for Business are the same product!
Skype that you use at home is great for a small number of users and is free to use, unless you want to buy credit to make calls to landlines and mobiles. Skype for Business lets you add up to 250 people to online meetings, gives you enterprise-grade security, allows you to manage employee accounts, and is integrated into your Office apps.
Skype for Business integrates with Office 365, boosting productivity by letting people connect on their terms. Employees can make and receive calls, give presentations, and attend meetings from one application - from anywhere - as long as they have an Internet connection. For example,
With Skype for Business, you don’t need to have a dedicated administrator to run servers or invest in additional infrastructure. As a part of Office 365, Skype for Business offers user’s new features, upgrades and patches as soon as they are ready. Skype for Business and the consumer version of Skype can also be federated so that communication is possible between platforms. Skype for Business service is supported around the clock. Of course, your IT team will have to manage settings, access, and security, but Microsoft handle the rest.
When you are busy managing disconnected systems, applications, and data with inflexible and slow systems, and taking flak from employees demanding access to the corporate network and to new tools, it’s hard to squeeze in even a few minutes to keep up with new products and evaluate everything you hear. But now you have a better understanding of the productivity and collaboration that Office 365 provides.
Feel free to share this with colleagues who need help separating fact from fiction when it comes to Office 365. It’s good to be on the same page, and you’ll save time by not having to argue about these myths.
