Reston-based IT Services Firm Gives Office 365 Advice to Local Entrepreneurs and Offers Free Assessment

RESTON, VA – November 1, 2016 — / — BEI—a managed services provider (MSP) specializing in helping organizations gain efficiency and cost savings through technology, today announced its partnership as an authorized implementation and support partner for Microsoft Office 365. The newest (and most powerful) version of Microsoft’s ubiquitous Office software suite, Office 365 is a cloud-hosted software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution that provides businesses with powerful, feature-rich versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook and other productivity applications, as well as hosted Exchange, SharePoint, OneDrive storage, Skype for Business and more.

According to Ellen Jennings, CEO at BEI, “Office 365 is one of the most innovative and revolutionary offerings we’ve seen from Microsoft in the past few years. It has tons of great features, is built for productivity and collaboration, gives IT teams greater control over security and data privacy, and delivers a consistent user experience whether used on a computer or mobile device. But, despite all these benefits, there are still companies that hesitate to upgrade to Office 365. It’s my hope that we can help small and medium-sized businesses make the transition, and become more mobile, flexible and competitive.”

Five Reasons Why Small and Medium-Sized Businesses Should Upgrade to Office 365:

1. Greater Flexibility
Unlike previous versions of Office where you would purchase the software along with a limited number of licenses, Office 365 can be easily scaled to meet the needs of your business. Administrators can add or remove users easily, and only pay for the licenses used per month.

2. Automatic Updates
Because it’s a cloud-based service, all applications are automatically kept up to date. This improves security and ensures that all users have access to the same set of features.?

3. Made for Mobility
Office 365 allows users to work and collaborate from anywhere, and on virtually any type of device. Shared documents can be accessed via OneDrive cloud storage and Skype for Business allows real-time communication from a computer, smartphone or tablet.

4. Enhanced Security
Data security is the top priority for most businesses. Office 365 uses BitLocker, SSL over HTTP and IRM to ensure your valuable documents and data stay safe. Plus, it requires all users to implement a strong password or multi-factor authentication for additional security.

5. A Better Exchange
Office 365’s cloud-based version of Exchange provides all the benefits of Exchange Server 2010 without the costs associated with deploying it in-house. It offers user mailboxes up to 25 GB and allows recovery of deleted items even they’ve been manually purged.

To better aid businesses in making the transition to Office 365, BEI is offering a free Office 365 consultation through the end of November. For a small to medium-sized business or non-profit to qualify for a free assessment, they must be located within the Metro DC area and looking to adopt Office 365 in the next 18 months. Qualifying organizations can sign up online for their no-cost assessment or call 703-528-8300.
