Now that you have found a provider that’s willing to help, it’s time to get started. The important steps are figuring out just who needs what, installation, setup, familiarization, and training. Getting your people used to Office 365 and all it can do doesn’t take long, but it is important.
in a small business setting, I'm normally the person who would come onsite and help with the planning stage. It’s important to take each person through the install and set-up process. That’s why I write the Office 365 blogs – I believe in old fashioned customer service and I want to be a part of what happens. Explaining to each user that their new Office 365 can be set-up for that one person to use on 5 separate devices usually needs some hands-on help where phones and tablets might be concerned.
There’s always a few questions and the little niggles that need to be sorted, and that’s important too. Efficient, easy and streamlined, that’s the way to get things running, and keep them running. Sometimes it might take more than a day, as people may not remember all that they have learned in the hustle & bustle of that first day. So, I often like to be sipping a coffee in the vicinity – just in case!
And yes, that’s right, Office 365 can be used on 5 devices for each person. So, it’s not just your work PC, Office 365 can be on your phone, iPad or tablet as well. And if you’re like me, and you can work from home occasionally, then you can also have your work documents on your home PC too. (We’ll look at that in another blog as I truly love working from anywhere, and everywhere!). So, getting set-up, and trained properly is important. Once you’re all good to go, you will find the usual office apps, like Word & Excel, as well as so much more. In the next blog, we will be looking at the best place to save your Office documents and begin a look at the “so much more”
make sure you join us for that!
