Office 365 is a service package combining off-line Office applications with extended on-line functions, cloud storage, and hosting. An important benefit is the possibility of using Office applications on various platforms, such as on a PC, telephone, tablet, as well as on Macs. The same familiar applications can be used on other devices without the need for additional user training.
Moreover, it is possible to use on-line versions of applications, data sharing, simultaneous document editing by multiple users using cloud storage, and users can take their documents anywhere with them (cloud synchronization).
The package also provides such services as corporate e-mail, calendars, on-line conferencing, or SharePoint on-line, and more.
Simplified IT management and lower initial costs relating to infrastructure are additional important benefits.
