You probably still remember the days where you could live comfortably without Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365). Work would get done, your business would continue to run, and your kid’s university proficiency was dependent purely on books, studying and not bunking lectures.
Fast forward a few decades, however, and everything has changed. Not only has Microsoft 365 (M365) evolved from a luxury purchase to a necessary one, but the overall product itself has vastly evolved. Today, the software is an ell-encompassing behemoth which boasts a wealth of capabilities and potential uses. Regardless of where on the work, college, or personal spectrum you may fall, almost every workplace need is catered for – meaning everyone from accountants to managers, writers and students can now reap the benefits of Mastering Microsoft.
Truth be told, we understand why the software has grown in popularity as the years have passed – the world has changed so much, so quickly, that the lines between work life and personal life can now be seamlessly intertwined. Whereas, previously, there were definitive boundaries between the workplace and the home, today’s Hybrid culture has transcended these barriers, facilitating the need for easier, interconnected solutions which bring simplicity and accessibility to homes and businesses across the board.
Enter Microsoft 365 Personal – your gateway to working, studying and living in optimised digital efficiency.
First things first, however - what is Microsoft 365 Personal, and how does it differ from Office?
Well, M365 Personal is essentially a singular subscription which grants the user access to all your essential, premium Office apps, 1TB (yes, TB) of Cloud storage and, perhaps most importantly, advanced security for all connected devices.
With this subscription, there are a wealth of additional benefits, but these include:
- Access to smart assistance features, plus hundreds of premium templates, photos, icons, and fonts in Word, Excel, and PowerPoint.
- Saving and sharing of files and photos across devices with OneDrive
- Experiencing advanced security protection in OneDrive and Outlook
- Ability to use the subscription on up to 5 devices at the same time
- Contact support via chat or phone at no extra cost throughout your subscription
Why would I need this?
Well, studies indicate that Microsoft365 has over half a billion users worldwide – and for good reason. There are an infinite number of benefits to be gained from their services, including creation, sharing, connectivity and collaboration – but that’s just scratching the surface. Truth be told, M365 and its products are rapidly redefining the way we work, think, and approach our day-to-day tasks, transforming the digital workspace into the future.
Whether an organisation or an employee, a parent or a student, there’s truly something for everyone with Microsoft 365.
Still not biting? Here’s why you should…
Subscribing to M365 Personal isn’t akin to signing up for Netflix. See, more mainstream subscription based online services offer access to shared products or resources. Anyone can sign up, anyone can use it, and anyone has access to the same product you do. With Microsoft 365 Personal, however, you’re essential purchasing a blank canvas and infinite potential. Your true investment, then, is the ability to organise, to create, to facilitate the solution you need, as you need it. You’re not just buying software; you’re buying a gateway to efficiency and better working. You’re choosing to subscribe to the now and the future – with the only limit being the one you choose.
After all, how do you achieve maximum productivity and streamlined communications without Outlook, a tool which forms the backbone of millions of industries worldwide? How would a writer work his magic, or an accountant do their thing without Word or Excel respectively? How would an organisation thrive, as many have during these hard few years of lockdown, without the cornerstone of the remote workplace in Microsoft Teams? You see, the benefit of M365 lies not simply in their products, but rather the benefits they present. And in choosing to become a part of their family, you’re also choosing to open a world of endless work possibilities.
Furthermore, as Masters of Microsoft, we’re in a prime position to help circumnavigate any potential challenges this new journey creates. Not only can we assist with the purchasing, installation, or setup, but our team of experts are on hand to establish how best to maximise your investment and, ultimately, propel you or your brand Future Forward.
