You would be hard pressed to find someone who has never worked within the Microsoft Office suite, the core applications such as PowerPoint, Word, Excel and others are ubiquitous in business and education across the world. However, finding organisations that branch outside of these applications, and use the core apps to their full potential are a lot more difficult to find – this comes down to a lack of parity between versions of office at home and at work, and a lack of education in the new features and capabilities of Office.
Office 365 has been the preferred solution for SME’s and Enterprise businesses for a number of years due to the solution being evergreen and no need to stick to a bi-yearly release cycle. There are a host of new applications, security features and capabilities now in Office 365.
