Microsoft Office 365 is a cost-effective suite of securely hosted, online applications that can increase your firm’s efficiencies and security.  It supplies the connectivity and productivity your firm needs to compete in today’s technology-driven environment and offers many competitive advantages for your practice:

  • Familiarity

Office 365 offers a suite of productivity applications including Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, and Lync Online. Your employees should be familiar with the components of Office 365 because they’ve probably used them before.  This way they can learn it quickly without affecting their productivity.

  • 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

Microsoft accepts responsibility for reliability and security. If you aren’t comfortable allowing them to handle security, simply read their extensive service level agreement and this should put your mind at ease!
