If you’re one of the millions of business users enjoying Office 365, you probably already know how great it is for productivity and communication.

This simple guide highlights some of the most popular choices with businesses that want to boost team work and collaboration.
Mobile Office Products
Microsoft understand that modern teams are no longer tied to their desks, so they’ve made the Office suite of applications available on the go. They work on any mobile device with an internet connection, through any browser, giving users access to all their documents from anywhere in the world.
This chat-based tool is fantastic for keeping teams connected wherever they may be. Users can talk to colleagues, share files, video call and assign tasks to specific members quickly and easily. It also integrates perfectly with Skype for Business and a number of third party apps including Hootsuite, Github and Trello.
Skype for Business
Snow days preventing your team from making it into the office? Someone stuck on the train? No problem! With Skype for Business, you don’t have to worry about meeting face to face any more. Up to 250 people can join meetings via their PC, Mac or mobile devices, sharing screens and collaborating on tasks. There’s even an integrated virtual whiteboard that everyone can use as if they were sitting in the same meeting room.
SharePoint is great for collaboration and the secure intranet can be accessed from anywhere, on any device. It allows organisations of all types and sizes to manage documents, share ideas and make announcements and works seamlessly with the main Office apps such as Word and Excel.
