A Day with Microsoft

by Finbarr O’Riordan


Last month, Typetec along with a number of our Office 365 clients spent a very worthwhile morning in Microsoft’s Sandyford Office where we all enjoyed an interactive discussion in a very comfortable setting.

The morning began with a brief introduction of each guest, their organisation, and what they currently use Office 365 for.

Microsoft Office 365 Day

Jonathan Eustace, Microsoft Cloud Lead,   then gave a brief outline of some of the tools available in Office 365. Quite often companies mistake Office 365 as been a mail only solution when it is in fact a powerful business suite.

Here are some of the features now available from the mid tier license costing under €20 per month:

  • Email – includes 50GB of Mail Storage per user, security, anti-spam.
  • Full Office 2016 suite for up to 5 devices.
  • File storage of 1TB per user. This includes daily back up and 30 day retention.
  • Rights Management/Security.
  • SharePoint.
  • Skype for Business.
  • Instant Messaging.

Jonathan took real life scenarios from each of our customer sites and adapted the features of their existing 365 licensing to meet their challenges. For example, he demonstrated how you can secure a sensitive email or attachment by giving it an expiry date under Rights Management. If you would prefer not to put an expiry date on the email, there is also the option of restricting the print of the attachment or restricting the download of the document – all very relevant to the day to day running of any businesses.

I was delighted see our customers realise the full potential of something they are already paying for.

Typetec have the skillsets and partnership with Microsoft to advise you on how to implement these features in your business. Our customers will testify that the available elements in Office 365 will make a difference in the way you do business…. For the better!
