Why Should My Business Migrate To Microsoft Exchange Online?

Office 365 | Executive Consulting | Workforce Enablement

Microsoft-Exchange-OnlineMicrosoft’s Exchange Online provides businesses with reliable email services, calendar software and robust contact management capabilities. Throughout the early 2000’s, businesses needed to install the Microsoft Exchange Server on a physical server. This process required either extensive in-house maintenance, or an outsourced service provider. Since Exchange Online does not require in-house maintenance, you can cut costs and better utilize your productivity.

Exchange Online also offers unprecedented flexibility, as you can access it as a standalone service or as an integrated option with an Office 365 subscription.

While these benefits are intriguing, there are many businesses that are used to hosting and managing their Exchange server in-house. If you have a method that works for you, why bother switching? Continue reading to discover how you can improve your business by switching to Microsoft Exchange Online.

Boost Employee Productivity

With a single sign-on, your employees can access shared email, calendar and contacts. Microsoft’s geo-redundant servers are backed by a 99.9% uptime guarantee, which allows for high availability and less downtime. Also, with an improved interface, you can enhance user experience and accessibility.

Reduce Costs

Exchange Online features a simple per-user monthly fee that presents a comprehensive messaging solution. You can trim your business’s management hours and cut maintenance and cost of on-premise exchange servers.

Bolster Security

Microsoft Exchange Online has built-in antivirus and spam filtering, offering you the ability to preserve your data with enterprise-grade reliability, continuous data back up, disaster recover capabilities, and a strict privacy policy.
