Reducing Overhead with Exchange Online and Office 365
Whether you’re an established business or a new start up, Microsoft’s Exchange Online and Office 365 is a crucial key to reducing your overhead.
Consider the cost of an on-premise Exchange server and everything that needs to be maintained to make it work:
- The hardware
- The operating system
- The Internet connection
- The Exchange software
- The client software, such as Outlook for every user
- A back-up solution
- An IT Person to make it all work together.
And those are just the known costs!
What happens if the server has a drive fail? If everything is configured correctly your users may not even notice, but you’re still paying for the IT Person to get on the phone with the hardware vendor and get a replacement on the way. When it gets there, he still has to swap it out and wait for array to rebuild.
If something else goes wrong, you aren’t just paying your IT guy – you’re also paying your employees to sit around and wait, wasting money and missing opportunities.
With Exchange Online and Office 365, your IT Person has a lot less to worry about: one less server to update, to patch, to upgrade, to backup, and to monitor. No more Exchange updates, patches, or upgrades, either. That means more room on the backup solution, less traffic on the Internet connection, and more money in YOUR pocket.
Exchange Online and Office 365 is a known, predictable monthly cost that covers all of these scenarios, providing built-in security, extensive privacy controls, continuous compliance and a financially backed guarantee of 99.9% uptime.
