5 MICROSOFT 365 APPLICATIONS YOUR BUSINESS CAN UTILISE
Need to send a quick email on the go? Perhaps you need to video chat with a team member who’s working from home? Or maybe you need to create a presentation to present at your next meeting. Whatever it is you need to do, it’s highly likely that Microsoft 365 has the application for it.
Microsoft 365 offers a range of innovative cloud applications to help your work life day to day, including standard applications such as Word, PowerPoint and Excel. Microsoft 365 offers so much more than this however, with plenty of useful applications that your business could be utilising to increase efficiency both in the office and at home.
With most workplaces being split between the office and working from home, applications such as Microsoft Teams have become crucial in allowing team members to remain in contact during the pandemic. Teams allows you to collaborate in many ways, including voice, video and instant messaging. Gone are the days of sending an email to a colleague which ends up getting lost in their inbox, as Teams allows you to send a quick message directly to them and strike up an instant chat.
Sharepoint is a collaborative platform that serves as an intranet. To put it simply – it works as a company’s internal website for sharing information, files and resources. Administrators can assign different permission levels for team members and allow who has access to edit it and upload new content. The application is fully customisable, allowing you to edit the entire interface to match your businesses branding.
Power BI allows you to create interactive dashboards and reports that provide actionable insights and drive business results. It is designed to create graphical visualisations based on business data which can then support you in your decision-making processes, as well as being sharable between employees.
Emails are a significant aspect of any business, but with Outlook it makes this task all the more easier to do. Outlook has its own dedicated smart phone application, allowing you to send and manage emails on the go. It’s designed to make sure you get tasks done, providing an integrated task list, calendar and address book.
Microsoft Bookings is a handy application offered by M365 which helps customers schedule meetings directly with your employees. The biggest benefit to Microsoft Bookings is the clarity of the application. You can embed the application directly on your website, where customers can then simply go to book a meeting or reschedule their existing appointment. It is also beneficial internally, as employees can check the same calendar to see all scheduled appointments.
