Is my data safe in the Cloud?

Your data is extremely safe in the cloud. Although unlikely, data can be lost and it often comes down to user error, whether it be an accidental deletion, data being overwritten or unwittingly allowing malicious action. We highly recommend having backup systems in place to avoid the heartache and cost involved in lost data. It’s also extremely important to ensure a robust cybersecurity system is in place. We can advise on the most suitable data backup and cybersecurity systems for your business to keep your data safe.

What are the best products and services to keep my remote team productive and accountable?

We are big advocates for Microsoft Teams (and the suite of Office apps that integrate so beautifully with Teams). It plays a big role in our own organisation, especially in regard to helping our team’s collaboration and productivity. With our team located across three countries (Australia, NZ and the Philippines) we have experimented with many tools over the years and, hands down, Microsoft Teams has been the clear winner.

So, we are happy to recommend Microsoft Teams to our clients and support their implementation and use of Teams from a technical perspective, as well as through education, to ensure their whole organisation uses this powerful platform to its full potential. Read more resources on optimising your setup for remote work.

How can your IT support help my remote team to collaborate in an easier way?

The best IT collaboration tools that we advise our clients to use are Office 365, MicrosoftTeams, Sharepoint and Cloud Services. We can manage the integration of these for your team and actually use them ourselves, so we have a lot of knowledge to share. 

Can I buy Office 365 or Microsoft 365 from you?
