Office applications

Access all familiar applications from anywhere with new & improved features

Office applications

Microsoft Office 365 still provides you with access to Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook from the desktop but now its powered by the cloud ensuring you’ll always have access to the most up-to-date best-in-class tools. Integration with OneDrive for Business and SharePoint Online allow documents and files to be co-created, edited and shared over any device from anywhere, while embedded security controls provide you the peace of mind that comes from knowing data is controlled and secured.

Office everywhere

Office 365 applications are housed locally on the endpoint and in the Cloud allowing you to access your data when and wherever you want over any operating system be it Windows, Android or iOS and over any device. Users benefit from a consistent optimised experience across up to five devices and can roam between them, switching from one device to another to access the document they were last working on right where they left off. Synchronisation also prevents conflicted document versions, allowing co-creation with colleagues and freeing the user to work from anywhere.

Key enhancements

Office 365 is now a cloud first, mobile first service which enables Microsoft to rapidly innovate and roll-out new feature sets to continually improve its productivity tools. Applications are both web-enabled and accessible via the cloud.
