A key focus for a lot of our clients is boosting office productivity.
This blog is a snapshot of some of the projects we’ve completed to increase efficiency with various organisations. Regardless of the size of your business, these solutions will help your team to collaborate, communicate and get more done.
Embracing Office 365.
Several companies we work with have now adopted Office 365, a subscription-based service that encompasses email with a suite of the latest Microsoft applications.
Both startups and established firms have made the leap and enjoyed more consistent and guaranteed access to their mailboxes. Larger firms have had to move away from their own on-premise Microsoft Exchange servers to the cloud solution.
On top of this, they have cut down expenditure as the cost for Office applications and reliable email hosting is now combined.
Adopting SharePoint Online.
Many of our clients already have a clear vision and direction.
For example, some of the words and phrases that crop up when we speak with businesses about their requirements include:
- More collaboration.
- Access from anywhere.
- Improved security.
- Version control.
If this sounds like you, SharePoint Online is a great solution for your company.
The teams at these businesses now have instant access to the latest edited version of documents and can work on them in and outside of the office. This removes the need for re-sending documents and reduces the risk of the wrong information being circulated. The move to SharePoint improves productivity across the board as it enhances collaboration capabilities.
Additionally, everything is stored in one place and can be updated from anywhere by anyone with the right permissions.
Refining backup strategies.
We’ve already dedicated a whole blog post on common backup mistakes, but getting your backup and disaster recovery strategy right can seriously save you time and money as a startup and large corporation.
In our experience, clients are often under the impression that their data is safe and regularly backed up.
But, who is checking and what if your backup fails? Will you know about it?
After taking a closer look, we found that several of our clients’ backups weren’t as effective as they first thought.
For example, some common problems include:
- No backups at all.
- Backups not monitored.
- The wrong data being backed up.
- Data backed up to inappropriate areas and devices.
We looked at what applications can be used to provide a productive, cost-effective and secure solution to successfully back up their business. By doing this, you can decrease the risk of business downtime, avoid hefty costs caused by data loss and protect your organisation’s reputation.
