More and more nonprofit organizations and associations are adopting Microsoft Office 365 for their productivity suite. Yet, most are only using the same old tried-and-true applications such as Word, Excel and PowerPoint. As a result, they are only tapping into part of the potential power at their fingertips. Are you getting the most out of your Office 365 Apps? Chances are, there are resources you aren’t fully embracing, but should.
Microsoft Office 365 is more than creating documents, spreadsheets and presentations. Did you know there are many other next-generation productivity apps including Skype, Yammer and Power BI? There are new ways to enter, access and analyze data and communicate amongst your team and with your membership. Leading associations are using a full suite of apps to realize the full benefits of Microsoft Office 365. So the question is, how will you use these powerful tools to maximize your investment and produce results for your organization?
Take Full Advantage of These Microsoft Office 365 Apps
There are several apps built into Microsoft Office 365 to support document management and control, improve productivity, nurture communication, and highlight the data you need to make smart decisions in the interest of your membership and organization. The opportunities are nearly endless. Evaluate and incorporate the apps that best align with your organizational needs, such as:
- Documents: Create documents in Word or Excel and develop professional presentations in PowerPoint. Then, share them with OneDrive. When deployed in the cloud, Microsoft Office 365, your documents, and other data can be shared and accessed anywhere, anytime and on any device.
- Productivity and communication: Your employees may spend as much time out of the office than in it. This doesn’t have to disrupt work in progress or cause productivity to suffer. Manage schedules in the calendar and communicate through Yammer or Skype. Take advantage of team chat, online meetings or social networks to keep in touch quickly and easily.
- Data Insights: Microsoft Office 365 includes Power BI, a suite of analytics tools to analyze and visualize important information. Dashboards highlight key metrics, turning data into insights you can use to run an effective association and deliver the products and services your members need.
