Microsoft’s Office 365 is a excellent tool for collaboration and is widely used among office professionals in many enterprise level organizations. That is why it should comes as no surprise that it can be leveraged as a tool for managing other necessary interdepartmental workflows and processes. Because Office 365 takes programs like Word and PowerPoint and adds powerful collaborative and sharing features – it takes these already proven office tools to the next level.
Although Office 365 on its’ own is a great way to push everyday document creation and collaboration to new heights, it is really just the beginning of creating efficient practices. Within Office 365 there are 4 different productivity tools – Exchange Online, Office Online, Lync Online, and finally, SharePoint Online. SharePoint Online is a collaborative cloud-based service that allows users to organize, discover, build and manage documents using the trusted functionality of the original SharePoint.
