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.

Security Concerns

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.

ACT Business Solutions

When you partner with ACT and Microsoft, many of these common business challenges fade away. Microsoft Office 365 is a complete suite of productivity tools including Word, Outlook, Excel, and PowerPoint. With Azure cloud services and Microsoft Office 365 managed by ACT, you'll enjoy a fully installed office experience across all devices from anywhere with an Internet connection. ACT solutions include:

Automatic Updating

Never worry about incompatibility or using outdated software again. Microsoft 365 is automatically updated immediately upon release. This means your internal IT staff will not have to organize and administrate updates. Your entire staff will have access to the very latest version of the software.

Cross-Platform Compatibility and Accessibility

If your team is using various mobile devices you run the risk of incompatibility issues, however, not with Office 365. Office 365 can be accessed from any device – phone, tablet, desktop, or laptop – and on any platform including Android, iOS, or Windows. Plus, with Office 365, every user can install Microsoft Office on up to 15 devices, so you'll have access any place at any time!

High-Level Security

Microsoft offers users industry-leading accreditations and certifications. Their data center brings security to a whole new level which no small to medium-sized business could ever compete with!

Training and Support

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.

Improved Collaboration

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.

Linked Communications

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.
