1. It’s more accessible: Office 365 operates in the cloud, which means you can use Word, Excel, Outlook and other office products from anywhere. This means no more forgotten homework, files you can’t access until you get to work or lost documents. The cloud has them all ready and waiting for you, wherever you are.
Since it’s in the cloud, the barriers between Mac and PC have been erased. It runs on both platforms and on any device - iPhones, iPads, Android, tablets and many other smart devices. A big allocation of cloud storage comes with it too, in the form of OneDrive, so you can access your documents from any device. Many people have started using their OneDrive to store all of their important data, including photos, media and recipes. You can even share your files with a simple link, and you always have complete control over who sees what.
2. It’s more affordable: Previously, there was a large upfront cost per computer and you were stuck with that version. For people with more than one computer in their home this was a very expensive way to get software. Office 365 has no large upfront costs, no matter how many computers or devices you need to install it on. It’s actually a monthly or annual subscription for a small amount, with no contracts. Depending on your location you can have five Office 365 licenses for a whole year, for less than the cost of your previous version.
3. It’s always updated: You always have the latest version of Office. You aren’t stuck with the one you paid for years ago, like Office 2007, 2013 or 2016. Office 365 is always the very latest. If you’re still using an older version, you’ll be surprised by how much Office has grown. Gone are the annoying paperclip helpers, tacky looking clipart and templates and confusing buttons. Everything is easy to use, so you no longer need to take classes or tutorials on how to work it.
Plus, any updates, upgrades or patches happen automatically. Switching to Office 365 is like a breath of fresh air, it’s essentially a sign up and go situation. Older files remain intact, your hard drive doesn’t get cluttered, and you’re up and running in minutes.
With Office 365, you’re essentially getting more while spending less. The fact that it’s always available, always the latest version and works anywhere is reason enough to make the switch particularly if you have students or work-at-home users. The baked-in security features also mean you’re less at risk of cyber-attack, so you can get on with your tasks and let Microsoft deal with the dirty work. It really is a stress-free solution, saving you time and money.
