As the world tackles the pandemic status of the COVID-19 outbreak, it is essential for you and your business to consider working remotely wherever possible to avoid the risk of contracting and spreading the virus. Businesses should be contemplating containment procedures and this includes rolling out work from home policies.
If you’re unsure where to start, the Ashfords BizTech team recommend using Microsoft Office 365 because it has great tools that will enable you to work anytime, anywhere, on any device. It has the same Office apps you've used for years, plus all the benefits of operating from the cloud.
To support business in making this transition to working remotely, Trevor Schoenmaekers, BizTech Director, is hosting a free short webinar to help you get the most out of Office 365. This session is designed for those businesses already set up on Office 365 to get a better understanding of the features and how to make it work for a remote workforce.

Office 365 enables users to share and access files, online and offline, as well as stay in sync with your team though its communication
tool, Teams. Teams accommodates remote meetings on-the-go. It also integrates with Outlook, making scheduling appointments fast and
simple. While this may help with some aspects of working remotely, we highly recommend the full Teams interface which is much more
intuitive and enables a seamless move to a digital workspace. Some incredible features include document collaboration, one-on-one chat,
team video chats and more.
Teams also offers a shared workspace for the various applications in Microsoft Office including PowerPoint, Word, Excel, Planner, OneNote, SharePoint, Delve and Power BI. These features give you and your teams the option to work from home without having to stress about swapping between applications as they try to get projects accomplished.
We understand that every business is at different stages of their journey to the cloud. If you aren't currently set up on Office 365, but are interested in learning more about the benefits and how it can work for you, please contact our Ashfords BizTech team. With years of experience, they are experts at making the process easier and can facilitate this transition.
