What is Office 365?

 

 

Think of it as your familiar Office, only better

Office 365 is the same Office you already know and use every day. And then some. Because Office 365 is powered by the cloud, you can get to your applications and files from virtually anywhere—PC, Mac, and tablets—and they’re always up to date. Same goes for updates to features—you get them automatically.

Avoid communication glitches. Business-class email and shared calendars that you can get to from virtually anywhere means people stay in sync, and on schedule.

One familiar experience, even on the go

Mobile apps let you view and edit your Word, Excel, and PowerPoint files and more on your mobile device. And when you get back to your desk, there they are—content and formatting intact.
