Build a cost-effective, secure remote workplace
2020 was a tough year for many small and medium-sized organizations, but most are working hard to emerge stronger and more resilient in 2021. We can help you achieve your goals with Microsoft 365, which includes Teams, SharePoint, OneDrive and Office. This all-in-one solution provides a cost-effective way to keep your data and devices secure, and your employees productive and working together in a safe, virtual environment.
Why are companies adopting extended work from home policies?
Employees and employers are sharing:
Afraid to go back to the office1
Wish to remain remote most of the time.2
Reduced their spending.3
And if you haven’t already, the first step to take is to implement Microsoft Teams as your communications hub to facilitate:
- Meetings and calling
- Chat and collaboration
- Apps and workflow
Your ability to provide your workforce with a secure, in-office experience, from anywhere, at any time may begin with Microsoft Teams but it doesn’t stop here.
Extending your remote work policy for your team?
SharePoint and OneDrive can help improve your company’s work from home experience by providing seamless employee connections and work-flow efficiency. OneDrive is the Microsoft cloud-based file sharing and storage application.
Accessing it is as easy as logging into Office.com from a home computer, or opening the OneDrive app on a work computer or phone. Team members can edit as well as access files from all devices and share files inside and outside your organization. They can also work together in real-time with other team members in Microsoft Office documents. Sync features ensure documents are always available from anywhere, at any time. And you can enable your team to do all this—from home office to onsite, on any device—computer, tablet or mobile, even when offline, with the knowledge that files are protected and backed up.
So why is SharePoint also needed if OneDrive is being leveraged?
While OneDrive is designed for personal file sharing and storage, SharePoint Online is designed for group content sharing and storage. Document libraries and company or team intranet sites are the primary vehicles for sharing content. The mobile version of SharePoint Online will allow team members to catch up on company or team news on–the-go. The Search, List and Follow features allow members to search for sites, files and people across the company.
There’s a lot these two applications can do to better enable your team to work more efficiently, collaboratively and securely. Want to explore more?
