  • Accessibility

Office 365 gives your firm access to enterprise software over the Internet.  It runs in Microsoft’s Data Center so you and your staff can connect using any computer device such as a desktop, laptop, tablet, or smartphone, —anywhere you have an Internet connection. In addition, Microsoft’s guarantees 99.9% uptime so you can share documents whenever necessary.

  • Collaboration

Law firms today have an ever-growing stack of electronic paperwork to keep up with. Office 365 leverages cloud computing to make document sharing simple and more secure. You, your associates and partners can collaborate by creating documents in Microsoft Office and sharing them via SharePoint Online. Document-level permissions allow you to ensure sensitive information stays out of reach of unauthorized individuals.

  • Connectivity

Office 365 allows you to stay connected using the next-generation of communication capabilities. Lync Online lets you and your employees communicate with colleagues, clients, and others via instant messages, video calls, or online meetings. Lync Online also integrates with other Office 365 applications such as Microsoft SharePoint and Microsoft Outlook.

  • Security
