If you’ve spent any amount of time in the business world, you are undoubtedly familiar with the name Microsoft, but you might be surprised by how much you’re hearing about Microsoft 365, the suite of tools that everyone in the business world seems to love. And there’s a good reason so many people love it—Microsoft 365 allows you to, as the slogan goes, “do more with less.”

How Does Microsoft 365 Actually Work?

When you hear “do more with less,” you might be thinking, “Wait, what exactly does it mean to do more with less?” In this case, it means you can be more productive and efficient by using a select few resources instead of stressing out (and wasting time and energy) by trying to use a greater number of tools that can’t do as much.

This is because Microsoft 365 is an all-in-one toolset. Customers who use Microsoft 365 have access to all the apps they need, including Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, as well as Teams for online meetings, Outlook for email, OneDrive for storage, and so much more. And because you can easily install it on PCs, Macbooks, tablets, smartphones, and pretty much any other device, you have the convenience of accessing all these tools from anywhere at any time. 

This means you’re able to be more productive, your work is more secure, and the entire experience is more affordable when compared with the typical software you have on an old-school computer. It’s everything a business needs.

Want specifics? Here’s what you should know about how you can use Microsoft 365.

You don’t have to worry about paying for subscriptions to an email service, a word processor, online storage, and all the other tools that you need. Think about how convenient it would be to have to worry about licensing fewer apps (and having to manage fewer apps). And because you’re able to deploy and log into Microsoft 365 just once from each device, there’s reduced risk of your security being breached, so you can have more confidence in personal information.

Use Microsoft 365 To Be More Secure

When you have Microsoft 365, you’re able to safely access your account from any device. So if you want to, you can use your Outlook account from your phone, tablet, and your computer. You can look at documents you’ve uploaded to secure storage while you’re away from your desk. You could even deliver you
