What is Office 365? The best way to get things done!

Join us live on June 3, 2015 at 8pm CST for a free Office 365 knowledge sharing webinar. SignUpButton3.jpg

YourCompleteOffice in the Cloud.png

Microsoft Office 365 is a cloud-based service hosted by Microsoft that brings together familiar Microsoft Office desktop applications with business-class email, shared calendars, instant messaging (IM), video conferencing, and file sharing. I like it because you can build a company website with easy-to-use templates. You can manage your website without IT staff because of the easy-to-use web-based content management system.

Office 365 comes in many shapes and sizes which can be very confusing when you're trying to decide which product works best for you. So we’re hosting a webinar to explain how you can use Office 365 to promote you and your business.
