OK, maybe it takes more than a minute, but according to Don Crawford, partner at KAMIND Inc., here are some important points to hit right away when you get in front of a client or prospect who might be interested in Office 365:
- There are cost savings over installing and maintaining on-premises software and hardware.
- Each Office 365 user can access Office 2013 on up to five devices, including smartphones.
- Licensing is easy; you pay by the month for active users.
- Costs are easy to anticipate and are an operational rather than a capital expense.
- Shared calendars are a huge benefit for a growing company (and this function works on smartphones).
- Backup and disaster recovery are easy to establish and maintain.
- Common software for the whole staff leads to better productivity and lower support costs.
- Office in the cloud offers continual upgrades.
