The Advantages of Managed Office 365 Services
A lot of IT time will be required to plan, implement, deploy, and support Office 365, which is why the following benefits of Managed Office 365 can provide a substantial return for many businesses.
1. Get Started in the Right Direction
An investment calls for doing it right the first time. Office 365 is not one size fits-all, and Managed Office 365 services helps you fully understand your choices. With Managed Office 365 services you can reduce risk with upfront discovery and design to determine the best deployment model for Office 365, specific to your business.
2. Office 365 Environment
You may not want to go all cloud all the time, if you need to balance differing requirements across an organization. For example, you may want to integrate Office 365 with on-premise Microsoft Exchange infrastructure for greater flexibility. Or you may not want to move all your end-user data to the Microsoft cloud; you may want to keep some user data on premises. At JENLOR, we can design a custom hybrid environment for your business.
3. Minimize Cost for Licenses
Do you already have Microsoft Office licenses? We’ll work with you to design an Office 365 deployment that makes the best use of your existing licenses on servers, devices, desktops, and in the cloud.
4. Office 365 Deployment
While your IT team may not have deployed Office 365 before, JENLOR’s Managed Office 365 advisors do it every week.
