Microsoft Office 365 changes the game for small to medium businesses in Australia by including Office 2013, Exchange Online, SharePoint Online and Lync in a powerful, cloud based solution.

Office 365 Overview

Microsoft Office 365 is more than just a bundle of office productivity applications.  It’s a complete rethink in the way small businesses can manage their day to day IT requirements.

Office 365 is the Office you've always known but now as a cloud-based solution which means no more on-premise challenges around servers, backups and software updates.

It includes all the familiar Office 2013 applications such as Word, Excel, Powerpoint etc, but it also integrates other critical business functionality including:

  • An enterprise grade email solution with shared calendars based on Exchange and Outlook
  • Audio and video conferencing with instant messaging and personal status indication with Lync Online
  • Shared viewing and editing of Office documents (eg. Word, Excel etc) for enhanced collaboration through the use of Sharepoint Online
  • Access to your documents and these tools on PCs, laptops, tablets and smartphones wherever you can connect to the Internet
  • An offline option to allow you to still get work done when you can’t connect to the Internet

On top of the traditional features, Office 365 is always evolving, giving you access to new features and developments. Some recent new features include:

  • Collaboration through Yammer, Lync and OneDrive (centralised storage) – enabling online multi-person communication & file editing combined with in-app calling/chat!
  • Smarter mailbox processing with “Clutter” - it learns what’s real and what’s junk for you
  • Compatibility with ALL smart devices – Apple, Android, and Windows
  • OneNote - you can now use it within Outlook & then automatically generate ToDo List items & calendar events
  • Development programs, such as:
    • Mix – easily turn PowerPoints into online presentations & lessons
    • Sway – lets you create interactive, web-based expressions of your ideas

Office 365 and Telstra

Office 365 is a Microsoft solution, however in Australia, Microsoft partners with Telstra to deliver Office 365 licensing direct to end user businesses. Microsoft has also partnered with 3 major distributors which offer Office 365 to their channels who then resell to end user businesses.
