Microsoft Office 2016 is significantly better compared to its predecessor in many ways. Especially, when it comes to taking care of the needs of small businesses, the new software seems to have a knack.
Here, we briefly consider in what ways Microsoft Office 2016 makes the life of small business owners, as well as their employees, less stressful.
Data analysis made easier
In Microsoft Office 2016, Excel is tightly integrated with the cloud-based business intelligence software Power BI. In addition to crafting dashboards that are personalized, small business owners can generate useful interactive reports with the help of Power BI. Also, they can analyze data by uploading the same to could service like QuickBooks and Google Analytics. To help small business owners track their progress and notice any lag, Power BI can be accessed using apps suitable for Android, iOS, as well as Windows. Storage of 1GB, with a refresh rate of once per day, is provided free of cost. In case a business requires more than that, the Pro plan can be purchased by paying $9.99 every month against each user.
Real-time collaboration now possible
Almost every software claims to offer great ‘collaboration’ these days. Unfortunately, that proves to be just a claim in most cases, and nothing more. A survey by iFeeltech IT support company operating in Miami FL concluded that in the majority of instances, coworkers need to go through a lot of hassle to work simultaneously with a single presentation or office document even when they use latest solutions. However, Microsoft Office 2016 truly shows what the term ‘collaboration’ should mean. Working closely with Office 365, it saves and synchronizes any changes made to a PowerPoint, OneNote or Word file across all devices and users. In other words, it offers true real-time collaboration.
Cloud security enhanced
It is not just customer databases or financial systems that contain valuable data and attract hackers. Nowadays, many mobile devices and cloud-based services contain a lot of sensitive data, too. Microsoft Office 2016 employs measures to make data safe across all kinds of devices. It lets small business owners secure their data using not just password, but also biometric authentication. To prevent data loss and enhance protection, the new version of MS Office makes use of multifactor authentication. It makes unauthorized copying or pasting of sensitive data pretty much impossible.
Although we have only taken into account the advantages ensured to small businesses by MS Office 2016, and the new software offers many good things to individuals and large corporations, too.
