The Benefits Of Microsoft

The Benefits Of Microsoft


As Microsoft partners, Systems Integration have helped various SMEs across Swindon and Wiltshire with Microsoft and it’s uses.

A lot of businesses are actually unaware of what Microsoft offers and how it can help. This month we give you an oversight of how it can help you and your business.

Microsoft offers a wide range of services that can help SMEs in a variety of ways. These services include:

  • Cloud computing: Microsoft’s cloud computing platform, Azure, provides SMEs with access to a wide range of cloud-based services, including computing, storage, networking, and artificial intelligence. This can help SMEs to reduce their IT costs and improve their agility.
  • Office 365: Office 365 is a suite of cloud-based productivity tools that includes apps such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook. This can help SMEs to improve their collaboration and productivity.
  • Dynamics 365: Dynamics 365 is a suite of business applications that can help SMEs to manage their customer relationships, sales, marketing, and operations. This can help SMEs to improve their efficiency and profitability.
  • Security: Microsoft offers a variety of security solutions that can help SMEs to protect their data from cyber threats. These solutions include Azure Active Directory, Microsoft Defender for Cloud, and Microsoft Intune.
  • Training and support: Microsoft offers a variety of training and support resources that can help SMEs to get the most out of its products and services. These resources include online training courses, documentation, and technical support.

In addition to these specific services, Microsoft also offers a number of other benefits to SMEs, such as:

  • Brand recognition: Microsoft is a well-known and respected brand, which can help SMEs to gain credibility with their customers.
  • Ease of use: Microsoft’s products and services are generally easy to use, which can help SMEs to save time and money on IT training.
  • Scalability: Microsoft’s products and services are scalable, which means that SMEs can easily grow their IT infrastructure as their business grows.

Overall, Microsoft’s services can offer a number of benefits to SMEs, including cost savings, improved productivity, and increased security. If you are an SME, I encourage you to explore Microsoft’s products and services to see how they can help your business.

Here are some specific examples of how Microsoft services have helped SMEs:

  • A small law firm used Office 365 to improve its collaboration and productivity. The firm was able to reduce the number of emails it sent and received, and it was able to track its billable hours more effectively.
  • A small retail store used Dynamics 365 to manage its customer relationships. The store was able to track its customer interactions more effectively, and it was able to send targeted marketing messages to its customers.
  • A small manufacturing company used Azure to improve its security. The company was able to implement a cloud-based firewall, and it was able to encrypt its data.
