As Microsoft Silver partners we really know our stuff when it comes to Office 365.

Imagine you had recently upgraded your smartphone to the latest new model. It would be silly to upgrade and not make use of the new features right?!

The opposite normally happens when businesses upgrade to Office 365. They subscribe to the latest and most powerful office communications platform on the market, but only use the same things such as Word, Excel and Outlook that they did previously.

The beauty of Office 365 is that it’s cloud based. This saves businesses money on storage as it doesn’t clog there already overloaded servers. It also provides access to new technology such as SharePoint and a whole host of other features.

However, the trick to getting the most from your Office 365 subscription is to release the full potential from the platform. So many businesses invest in Office 365 but remain unaware that they are missing out on the full features available within the platform itself.

Here are three features that are commonly under used by businesses:

Access Office 365 on the go.
Employees can now connect directly to their business Office 365 environment from a iOS, Windows or Android device. The apps available within 356 such as Yammer, Delve and OneDrive are easily downloaded and fully responsive to all screen sizes for ease of use.

Real time document editing
The full Office 365 suite is now available online and now enables collaborative working to improve efficiency. Real-time document editing can be viewed by several staff members enabling them to collaborate – which is particularly useful for larger documents.

Clever content with Delve
There are several other useful features within Office 365, another is Delve which surfaces personalized content to you from across Office 365. Powered by the Office Graph, Delve brings you information based on what you’re working on, who you’re working with, and the permissions you have.

In my next article I’ll include how businesses can make the most of Yammer, Skype for Business and Power BI – Microsoft’s Business Intelligence tool.

Don’t have 365 yet? It’s cheaper than you might think. Did you know that you can subscribe to Office 365 for as little as £3.10 per user/month.
