Common Business Challenges
Businesses often face these common challenges that Microsoft Office 365 and Azure address:
Keeping Software Current and Updated
Updating software is challenging and can be time-consuming depending on the number of systems on your network.
Multiple Device Usage
With mobile and BYOD (bring your own device) becoming more common, having all of your assets on the same page in terms of software versions can be difficult. Add to this the rise in remote workers, and you could be facing major incompatibility issues.
Today, data security is crucial. Your systems, network, and software must have the highest level of security out of the box to protect your business data.
Remote Access Issues
With more employees working remotely from home or on the road, many companies are facing accessibility challenges for their remote team members.
Getting Up to Speed is Time-Consuming
When faced with multiple applications, training new users (and even seasoned pros) can take time.
Connectivity and Communications
With email, calendars, cellphones, texting, and other communications methods, linking contacts, calendars, and email across devices reliably can be particularly challenging.

Almost everyone is familiar with Microsoft Office and that makes adoption much easier. With a wealth of online resources, and ACT training and support services, your staff can be up and running in no time – reducing the time and cost of training your staff.
In SharePoint, multiple users can open and edit the same document in real-time allowing more effective collaboration. With Microsoft, you'll also enjoy version control, security settings, and a clear audit trail so collaboration is easier.
With Microsoft Outlook (part of Office 365) you'll enjoy synced calendars, contacts, and email across all devices. That makes appointments, and meetings easily manipulated, adopted, and accepted. Outlook email also seamlessly integrates with the Office suite.
