Cloud applications like Office 365 help businesses improve efficiency through collaboration, data management and workflows. I’d consider myself an early adopter of Microsoft Office 365, having used it for the past five years. Lately, I’ve been amazed at the speed of its development with new products seemingly arriving weekly. Office 365 is no longer just an email server in the cloud; it’s now a must-have tool. Office 365 is designed to enable team collaboration and significantly improve productivity.

Microsoft Teams

Microsoft Teams has been a fantastic addition to the suite of cloud tools available; it’s changed the way our teams work and collaborate. Microsoft Teams brings the best of products such as Outlook, Skype and OneDrive into one place. Document sharing, meetings and project updates have never been easier! We recently used Microsoft Teams to help with the roll-out of Zoho CRM to over 50 users. Microsoft Teams allowed the project champions to quickly share information, and empowered CRM users to give feedback in near real time. This created a sense of community for those involved with the project and significantly contributed to a successful roll-out!

Microsoft Whiteboard

I’m also incredibly excited about Microsoft Whiteboard, which is currently available for preview. I’m a huge advocate of digital transformation in the workplace, but I still reach for the whiteboard marker in every meeting! Last week I installed Microsoft Whiteboard on my tablet, and I haven’t looked back. Using a stylus and wireless casting to a TV allows me to use Whiteboard to work with my team and share ideas in an interactive manner. The technology is easy to use and simple, so it doesn’t distract from the content (which is a problem I’ve found with other products). My scribbles are also automatically saved to the cloud, which is an added bonus.

Office 365 has stayed true to Bill Gates’ original vision of collaboration being assisted by technology, as we’re reminded by this quote:

”You’ve got to give great tools to small teams. Pick good people, use small teams and give them great tools so that they are very productive in terms of what they are doing”

I’m keen to see what’s next from Office 365! These are just two examples of my recent experiences – do you have any success stories that you’d like to share?
