How Office 365 can improve the way you do business: Communication

Default Image

This is the first in a series of Office 365 blogs where we’re looking at the many ways Office 365 can improve the way your business operates.  This blog focuses on how it can improve the communication in your business.

Even if Office 365 is something you’ve had as part of your business for some time, do you take advantage of the apps that can really change the way you work?

We all want to feel empowered and the need for greater flexible working is ever increasing.

We’ll look at two areas of Office 365 that can really transform the way you communicate.


Skype for Business

  • Control your communications.

Hold one to one conversations or meetings of up to 250 people.

  • Let your contacts know when you are busy.

Skype for Business always knows when you are busy because it integrates with your calendar

  • Let attendees choose what their view is:
    • Gallery view
    • Speaker view
    • Content view
    • Compact view
  • Give control to your users or take some of it back.

You choose.  A presenter can select whether users can flip through content, contribute some ideas or make changes to a PowerPoint file.

  • Access it from anywhere.

Public Switched Telephony Network conferencing lets attendees dial into a meeting from a landline or with a single click on a computer or mobile device.

Connect and Share from Outlook using Groups

If you are co-ordinating projects and teams, the groups feature puts everything in one place.

  • Bring your team together in just a few clicks
  • Facilitate quick referencing and easy communication by accessing messages sent by the group
  • Tag colleagues with the @mention feature when their input is needed
  • Continue conversations on the go with the mobile app
  • Initiate voice and video calls via the Skype for Business plug in
  • Access conversations offline for groups marked as a favourite
