PeaceWorks and Microsoft Office 365. A Compelling Choice.

Cloud computing is granting Not for Profits and small enterprises access to technologies that were previously only available to large enterprises. The infrastructure and knowledge to configure and maintain these applications was beyond the financial reach of many organizations with less than 250 employees.

What’s Included in Office 365?

Office 365 is a suite of productivity tools that is greater than the sum of its parts. Comprised of Exchange for email, Lync for Video conferencing and Chat, as well as SharePoint for collaboration, this toolset can be expanded to include support for Blackberry.  It also includes a downloadable copy of Office 2010 that you can use on 5 different computers. Its familiar interfaces through Outlook and Internet Explorer mean that staff will require minimal training and little loss of productivity as they switch to the new system.

What are the Benefits?

Together, Exchange, Lync, SharePoint and Office 2010 combine to give users a dashboard-like experience through Outlook. From a single email, users can determine a colleague’s availability, begin a conversation in chat or voice, or collaborate on a document. Using the power of SharePoint, users can store data and develop dashboards that allow teams to use the data in new and innovative ways to achieve organizational goals.

For organizations that have older equipment and software requiring an upgrade, or those who need to support the requirements of a growing and increasingly mobile workforce, Office 365 presents a compelling package of tools.  These tools allow your workforce to stay connected, collaborate effectively and use any device they choose to access the information they need to succeed. Many organizations are finding that when workers have multiple job offers, they will often decide based on the technology suites they will be working with. Updated platforms can be critical to attracting the human capital you need to succeed in your mission.

Charitable Pricing

Organizations that qualify for charitable pricing will especially benefit from this technology. Discounts for charities mean that pricing is approximately one third the cost of the regular rate. Setup costs are also modest – many organizations can be put into the system in less than 24 hours. This service model means that you have cost-certainty for your IT needs, and you only pay for the services you need when you need them. No longer do you need to purchase expensive equipment and software, planning for your IT needs for years to come. Instead, you can expand or contract your services as you desire.
