Increasing Business Efficiencies with Online Connectivity by Alchemy Systems, DASLS Sponsor


Unless you’ve been living under a rock for several years, you will have heard people you know speak about the “cloud”. Of course, we’re not speaking about big white fluffy things in the sky, but rather a world of online connectivity which, if used well, can help to increase your business efficiencies. Here are 3 of the best ways how you can use the cloud to your advantage, right now:

  1. Microsoft Office 365

Picture the scene, you’re upscaling, new employees are joining your team and your IT department or support company are hit with a backlog of software installation requests to get them up and running. Sound familiar? With cloud-based Office 365, the days of installing physical software on an individual basis could be long-gone. Employees can simply sign into the Office 365 cloud via a browser and download the most up to date software directly onto their own device. Once signed-in, staff can access their documents across all devices where Office 365 is installed, and new versions download and install in the background, saving time and money.


There are too many benefits to Office 365 to list, but here are some of our favourites:


Real-time, synchronised data: With Office 365, all of your emails, documents and files can be stored across all of your devices in real-time. With the software being cloud-based, all data is backed-up to the cloud, meaning no matter where you are or which device you are on, you can be up and running quickly and easily, simply by signing in to your Office 365 account. Never before has working been so flexible!

Whether you’re working in your office or on the go, you get a familiar, top-of-the-line set of productivity tools. Office applications —always the latest versions—let you create, edit, and share from your PC/Mac or your iOS, Android™, or Windows device with anyone in real time.


Your IT department are set-free: Setting up Office 365 is as easy as signing-in, downloading software and go. No more Microsoft Office product discs, expired serial numbers and employee installation schedules. You can then focus on doing your own job properly and supporting your own clients simply and efficiently


Collaborate between teams: Empower your staff to upload and share reports, presentations and projects with cloud-based tools such as SharePoint. Staff can create and access project folders and team collaboration microsites with ease – eliminating the age old “can you remember where I saved that?” question!
