Microsoft Office 365 – 21st Century Mobility for 21st Century Businesses

By 2016 there will be 1 billion smartphones in use, 350 million of which will be used for business. It is also estimated that by then 50% of internet users will be using tablet computers and, with 1 ½ billion people online, that means a huge number of them are mobile 24/7, 365. How many of these will be business users? That is anyone’s guess, but current estimates put tablet use for business at about 375 million in three years.

That is a massive number of business people who will need constant access to productivity tools, systems, and communications which will enable them to perform their duties efficiently and effectively, even while on the go.

At North Star Inc., we understand the need for communication and mobility in a mobile work environment. After all, 75% of our people spend their days on the road, helping clients with expert Denver IT support. For us, just like so many of our clients, the need to access the apps, productivity tools, and the people we need to interact with has been an ongoing problem for years. When devices do not communicate with each other smoothly, our day becomes less productive, just like yours.

Office 365, with built-in access to all the Windows tools we use every day, as well as cloud-based access to critical systems such as Exchange, SharePoint and Lync, across a variety of devices, allows us to stay in touch – and productive – wherever we are working. It can do the same for you.
