Five ways Office 365 can lighten your workload


A cloud-based service that combines the best of Microsoft Office with document management and virtual working, Office 365 from O2 makes working on the go hassle-free. Whether you’re looking to take advantage of HD video conferencing, instant messaging, business grade email, the ability to design and build websites, or simply the latest version of Excel, Office 365 from O2 has numerous features.

Here are five of the key benefits:

1. Multiple access

Outlook Web App (OWA) enables colleagues to access each other’s mail folders and calendars – with permission, of course – meaning work can continue as normal in someone’s absence.

2. Automatic back-up

If you have a habit of forgetting to back up your work, SkyDrive Pro will prove very useful. A personal library intended for storing and organising work documents, it automatically syncs to the cloud.
3. Maximise productivity

A wide range of apps including Bing maps, LinkedIn and Yammer are available to download to OWA or Outlook 2013 from the Office 365 store.

4. Offline access

You can carry on doing your work in areas with no internet, and any work you do while disconnected will automatically be synced next time you connect.

To utilise this benefit you must be running at least Internet Explorer 10, Safari 5 or Chrome 24.

5. Personalise

Create your own personalised professional domain with Office 365’s superior formatting tools.
