Every business organisation be it small, medium or large should have some form of IT setup for the ongoing smooth functioning of its business operations.
However, to have an IT setup you need have an investment in resources and therefore, it is crucial that you make this investment decision wisely.
Now, in the case of Microsoft Office 365, sure there is an option of direct purchase.
So, you could purchase, install and try to get Office 365 setup and working flawlessly without any external assistance at all throughout your whole business.
But can you afford the time to setup it up properly?
Then maintain and manage this service on its own as well as all of the other IT requirements that go along with running and building a business?
The answer to this question above nine times out of ten will be no.
As a business owner you need to spend your time where your business most needs it, not trying to figure out why someone’s emails still aren’t coming through after 4 hours of head scratching.
This part of your business should be easy, not hard and that’s where we come in.
