Office 365 sets your team up for success – regardless of where they are. With Office 365, your business software is in the cloud and users’ access to applications like Microsoft Word or Excel is not tied to a specific computer. Your team can work across devices and from any location without missing a beat. Your organization becomes more mobile, and staff can easily collaborate on projects.
There are several Office 365 licensing options. Along with securing the features your business needs, you want to avoid overpaying. Office 365 pricing is based on size and use, making it easy for costs to escalate if left unchecked.
Before obtaining Microsoft licensing for Office 365, discuss your business goals and operations with a Microsoft partner. They will point out key differences in the versions and offer guidance. For instance, it might make sense to set some employees up with Firstline licensing and obtain Enterprise for everyone else.

Typically, the price for the bundled software is comparable to what businesses pay when 2 of the 3 solutions are purchased separately. Even if the savings are marginal, you’re accessing additional resources at little or no extra cost.
Working with cloud-based software introduces new security challenges for organizations. Tools to detect, monitor and prevent threats are built into Office 365, and though the applications are interconnected, they must be correctly implemented and continually monitored. A Microsoft Gold Partner, like Nortec, with security-related competencies, will identify, install and manage the solutions your business needs to prevent cyberattacks.
Earning a Microsoft competency requires continual education. We regularly invest in learning about Microsoft products to better serve our clients who rely on Microsoft solutions to run their business. At Nortec, we have an unparalleled 8 Gold Competencies. Security is always a key consideration, and our knowledge of Microsoft’s platforms enables us to safely manage your Office 365 migration.
During Office 365 migrations, we set up Advanced Threat Protection to ensure you don’t trade security for flexibility. We’ll demonstrate how you can zero in on vulnerabilities and prevent attacks using Secure Score. Or, we can manage the dashboard for you and provide reports. Based on your security and compliance needs, we can layer on further protections like Enterprise Mobility + Security (EM+S).
Office 365 is the beginning of your organization’s journey in the cloud. New applications in Azure will continue to be developed and released, providing limitless possibilities for what your organization can achieve. It is important to look forward and work with a Microsoft partner who thinks strategically, provides guidance based on your goals, and helps you plan for the future.
