The beautiful nature of how Office365 allows collaboration is one of the prime reasons so many people and businesses are moving to Office 365. It allows users to work within their teams and departments on the same documents, whether they work in the office as ocassional home users or complete remote workers. In the world of the internet there is no reason to have a segregation of work even though users may not necessarily see one another.
Office 365 ticks many boxes for collaboration as outlined below;
- A way to make files accessible to the remote worker.
- A means of assigning and sharing tasks, appointments, notes and more…
- An online meeting space, groups can use to call in or gather together.
- A shared site that can be accessed through numerous tools when working with other team members from other countries or multilingual documents.
In Office 365 you can clearly see that it pushes the boundaries of working from an office, huge distances to commute and the ability to work just as efficiently remotely and on the move as being in the office. The boundaries are broken by the integration of many “apps” which seamlessly gel together to provide a suite of cloud-based tools. I refer to them as apps as in Office 365 the idea of Microsoft Office on a PC has been stretched beyond the desktop box – mobile devices such as the Microsoft Surface, iPad, laptops and more recently powerful SmartPhones have paved the way for users to collaborate wherever and whenever.
