What is Office365?
Office365 is a cloud-based version of the world-leading productivity suite Microsoft Office. It was first launched in 2001, and is available in multiple different packages and subscriptions. The core version of Office365 contains staple programs such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote and Outlook. There are a range of other apps available to add on with more advanced business plans.
The various apps available with Office365 include:
- Azure Information Protection
- Skype for business
Below is an ‘at a glance’ guide to some of the most widely used and versatile Office365 tools, included in various Microsoft 365 for Business subscriptions.
The de facto word processor, Word is the standard by which all other document creation tools are measured. The ultimate universal tool for creating everything from customer-facing letters and documentation to in-house announcements and guides.
For all things data and spreadsheets. Use Excel for data analysis, comparison, collation and more.
For efficient, easy to manage and eye-catching presentations during meetings, look to PowerPoint. The app’s capability goes beyond just slides too – include video, animation and more.
Fully integrated with the other Office365 apps, Outlook is a wide-ranging email host service that combines calendar functionality with intuitive inbox management.
Get up to 1TB of cloud-based storage with your Office365 subscription for your business. Host files, photos, folders and all your data in an online vault that’s accessible wherever you are.
Another cloud-based service, OneNote allows you to take notes or create memos on any device (i.e. mobile, tablet), and access them on another. Have a great business idea on the road? There’s an Office365 app for that.
A key for internal communication, SharePoint allows you to host your own business intranet or small websites, perfect for internal messaging and key enterprise data management.
This chat-based multifunctional business app has really come into its own in a post-lockdown world. Keep your team members in touch, share files instantly and create smaller channels to streamline communication. For business telephony solutions Microsoft 365 Business Voice is the obvious integration choice.
Microsoft Power BI
Use this powerful tool to collate, sort, analyse and disseminate business intelligence data. Inform your decision making with insights powered by data.
Create your own custom app – either model-driven or canvas – perfect for your business. This low-code platform means you don’t need to be a developer to make the perfect functional app.

How is Office365 different from previous versions of Microsoft Office?
Office365 is a subscription service. So, rather than paying once for a single copy of the suite, users have ongoing access to a cloud-based version that can be tailored to required service level.
What are the benefits of Office 365?
Easy installation and maintenance
Since the Office365 suite is hosted and run on a cloud-based system, installation is quick and simple. What’s more, you don’t need to worry about complicated hardware maintenance to run it.
Cloud-based file storage and organisation
When you download Office365, you also gain access to cloud storage space for files, along with integrated email hosting.
With full connectivity and diagnostics, users will always have access to the latest updates and most up-to-date versions of their software. Plus, you can upgrade and update your package when you need to, without having to replace the whole system like with legacy Office versions.
With Office365’s cloud hosting facilities, all your Microsoft Apps are connected to each other and online services, so your data is transferrable and easily accessible.
Access your data anywhere
Use your Office365 login wherever you are to access your important information and download your data. Communicate with your team, clients, suppliers and more, instantly.
