Office 365 Overview

Your Office Anywhere

Whether you’re working in your office or on the go, you get a familiar, top-of-the-line set of productivity tools. Office applications —always the latest versions—let you create, edit and share from your PC/Mac or your iOS, Android or Windows device with anyone in real time.

Tools for the professional

Brand your business-class email address with your company name to build name recognition, and market your business with customized marketing materials that are easy to create. Connect better with customers and colleagues with a range of communication tools, from email and IM to social networking and video conferencing.

Tools for Teamwork

With up to 1TB of storage per user, you’ll have plenty of space for all your files. Plus, because your files are stored online, you can share with people in or outside your company, from wherever you’re working, whenever you need to. And with multi-party HD video, content sharing, shared calendars, and team chat, you’ll always be in sync with your team.

Easy setup and management

With step-by-step guidance, you can set up users easily and start using the services fast. You can access the easy-to-use admin centre from anywhere to manage all your services. And Office 365 takes care of the infrastructure for you, so your services are always up and running and up to date.
