Let your business benefit with Office 365

Everything your business needs in one place – the Cloud. And the benefits don’t stop there, Office 365 saves you money, time and helps your business grow regardless of its size. Here’s 10 ways how:

  • Scalability

    Enjoy the flexibility of Office 365. Mix and match apps to create unique functionality for each user or specific department. Scale your business to grow with you and give your teams access to all the tools they need at every stage of their employment – without needing to adapt to new systems.

  • Flexibility To Work Anywhere

    Entirely Cloud-based, Office 365 gives you the freedom to work from anywhere with an internet connection. Perfect for businesses with remote offices or travelling employees that need to stay connected. Access your emails, files and Office programs from any location on any device and create, edit and share assets with anyone, anywhere in real time – to save time.

  • Collaborate With Ease

    Gone are the days of multiple copies of spreadsheets and presentations. With Office 365, work in progress can be updated collaboratively in real-time: one document, multiple editors with version tracking. Comments by committee don’t come much easier, plus – with multi-party HD video, team chat and shared calendars – your whole team can be constantly connected and in sync.

  • Keep Up To Date

    Forget software upgrades and patches – with Cloud connectivity you’ll always have access to the latest functionality at no extra charge. With all your team using the same version, new features and compatibilities will be available to all users as soon as they’re launched. Document incompatibility will never be an issue again.

  • Reduce Your Capital Spend

    Choose a monthly or annual Office 365 subscription, per user, to suit your budget. Turn your IT costs from capital expenses to operational and stop the services you’re not using to save costs – at any time.

  • Eliminates hardware and reduces energy costs

    Make substantial cost savings with Cloud storage. You’ll no longer need onsite servers to back up your websites, email and files which reduces energy costs as well as valuable office space.

  • Install up to 5 devices per user

    Constant connectivity isn’t a commodity – it’s essential. We all communicate across multiple devices daily: laptops in the office, smart phones during our commutes, we simply choose the most convenient to keep in touch. That’s why Office 365 allows you to auto-sync your docs and access them from up to five of your devices.

  • Mix and Match Plans

    Every employee has unique technical needs for their specific role. With Office 365 you can mix and match your business plans and choose the features and programmes that best suit your teams. You only pay for what you use and can simply switch plans to give users access to more/less systems as their careers progress.

  • Advanced Security Features

    Many businesses are apprehensive about migrating to the Cloud because of a misconception that it isn’t secure. Just like an existing on-premise system, its security success depends on the preventative measures a business puts in place. Office 365 is designed with built-in security features to ensure your data is safe at all times, including:

    • Message Encryption: Regardless of the email service the recipient may use, encryption allows you to send your message without anyone other than the recipient reading it
    • Advanced Threat Analytics (ATA): ATA immediately alerts you of suspicious activity in real-time, using built-in intelligence and sophisticated analytics. All emails are scanned for malicious content and attachments – if anything suspicious is detected you will be notified and the attachment/link will be blocked from your inbox.
    • Mobile Device Management: Protect the private company information your employees can access using their mobile devices with this security feature of Office 365. Not only can you create and manage mobile device security policies but you also have the ability to wipe a device and access detailed data reports.
    • Data Loss Prevention: Prevent sensitive information leaving your business via email. This functionality scans all outbound emails for sensitive data (passport and credit card numbers, bank details and social security numbers). When detected and deemed non-compliant (in accordance with your Data Loss Prevention policies) you can choose the next steps, either warning the sender that sensitive data has been found, CCing management or quarantining the message.
  • Advanced Email Capabilities

    As an Office 365 user you’ll have instant access to the latest updates and features released to Outlook. Designed to simplify your admin, these features offer a range of impressive email options, including:

    • Boomerang: Quite simply the reminder that keeps coming back. Use your inbox as a to-do-list? Then Boomerang is your new office buddy. You can snooze your email and move messages to a storage folder until a later date. It also allows you to schedule outbound messages using your Outlook calendar.
    • Focused Inbox & Clutter: This feature automatically files your most recent emails into a priority folder and the rest into another. It also de-clutters your inbox, based on your preferences, to save you storage space and time.
    • Time Zone Management: If you regularly face the challenge of meetings spanning several time zones, you can create events with different start times to suit each individual region. These will also show the correct time zone, per region, in your Outlook calendar.

The best things come in 3s

Kalamazoo IT’s Microsoft Office 365 migration service offers you three well-defined migration profiles to help businesses like yours manage your Cloud migration effectively:

  • A Cutover Migration. For businesses with less than 300 employees, this is often the most affordable, simplest and fastest Office 365 migration service. End users continue with their day-to-day while this pre-stages existing data and switches mail routing to Office 365 to synchronize new mail.
  • A Simple Co-Existence Migration. Recommended for organisations with 300 – 30,000 employees, this profile pre-stages existing data to Office 365 then moves new mail in manageable waves to synchronize a mail co-existence.
  • A Hybrid Co-Existence Migration. Best suited for businesses with unique requirements that can migrate over a long-term period. This profile focuses its attention to client timelines, budgets and hardware/software needs. On-premise and cloud email solutions work in tandem to synchronize email, calendars and contacts, while you keep your existing mail systems running simultaneously for as long as needed.

  • Exchange Hybrid environment configuration

 7 Steps For Office 365 Migration:

The greatest decisions start with one small step – in this case that means calling us. We’ll create and configure your new Office 365 environment to guarantee you peace of mind in the Cloud. We’ll customise and manage the migration of your data and mailboxes from your existing system. You can rely on Kalamazoo IT to provide you with a Cloud migration service that’s seamless, trouble-free and tailored to your needs. You also have the added benefit of extensive expertise from experienced consultants who understand your business, your specific needs and your Office 365 requirements.

Step 1 Let’s talk. Our experienced Cloud consultants will chat through the best migration options and subscriptions with you. We’ll then give you a clear price for your migration, without any obligation to move with us.
Step 2 Set a date. Every business is unique. That’s why we take the time to identify any complex environments and carry out an on-site assessment to identify any potential issues so that there are no unexpected surprises during your migration. Afterall, we’re here to make this as seamless a transition as possible.
Step 3 We’ll remotely create and configure your customised Office 365 environment. We’ll take care of any custom domains and advanced features such as message encryption, disclaimers and multi-factor authentication.
Step 4 We’ll propose a migration path which creates user accounts or an active directory synchronisation. If you’re happy with our proposal we’ll then agree timescales for the migration process.
Step 5 You may choose to use our proposed process and migrate your mailboxes independently at this stage. If this is the case, our consultants will work directly with your administrator to help you migrate the first sprint of mailboxes.
Step 6 After a successful migration we’ll retire your old system and instruct a technical cleanse of old messaging.
Step 7 Almost there. Your final step involves a knowledge transfer – our expert consultants training your system admin with all the guidance they need to manage your Office 365 in house. We’ll of course, provide all technical documentation of the migration for your records.
