Video Friday: Business is better with Microsoft Office 365
Sky Zone Indoor Trampoline Park
Sky Zone Indoor Trampoline Park, a recreational entertainment company with locations across the United States, needed comprehensive email and collaboration capabilities to support its rapid growth rate. After considering Google Apps, the company adopted Microsoft Office 365 to provide scalable, cloud-based communications and collaboration tools. The company expects to save more than US$1 million over the next five years as it takes advantage of email archiving and other cost efficiencies available through Office 365.
Breathe Hot Yoga
Since 2010, the founders of Seattle, Washington-based Breathe Hot Yoga have shared their passion for yoga—expanding from one to three studios in fewer than three years. Believing that a professional presentation is integral to success, Breathe uses Microsoft Office 365 as its core business platform.
With more than 20 teachers moving between the studios and instructing 100 classes a week, having Office 365 on mobile devices makes it easy to keep track of scheduling changes and customer service issues. Teachers build strong customer relationships by responding quickly to inquiries, because they can retrieve email from anywhere, on any device. Office 365 is also a key part of the Breathe Hot Yoga Asana and Cali Yoga Teacher Training Programs. By using SharePoint Online, the staff can share written class materials and tutorials, making it easy to collaborate and review training materials.
M3 Marine Group
M3 Marine Group staff did not have the access to emails and documents needed to support the global expansion envisioned by founder Mike Meade. Then he subscribed to Microsoft Office 365. Today, brokers reliably access archived emails for market trending to build better deals, and consultants collaborate better in virtual teams to expedite reports—two essential steps toward building a global business that stays true to its service-oriented roots.
Tastea—an innovative beverage retailer based in Orange County, California—wanted to prepare for expansion while maintaining high levels of quality and service. The company decided that a key to creating a repeatable customer experience across stores was to standardize operations while opening up clearer lines of communication. The company now relies on Office 365 for everything from inventory management to customer service. Tastea believes that it will open more stores and have greater business success with Office 365.
Martin Aircraft Company
After 30 years of development, Martin Aircraft Company is ready to launch the world’s first practical jetpack into the global market place. It replaced outdated business IT with Microsoft Office 365. Now its expanding workforce can communicate and collaborate efficiently as a virtual team to successfully sell the jetpack to life-saving first responders, military organizations, tourist operators, and individuals around the world.
With an Office 365 subscription, you can edit and create new documents on your devices. Microsoft Office 365 delivers the power of cloud productivity to businesses of all sizes, helping save time, money, and free up valued resources. Office 365 combines the familiar Microsoft Office desktop suite with cloud-based versions of Microsoft’s next-generation communications and collaboration services—including Microsoft Exchange Online, Microsoft SharePoint Online, Office Online, and Microsoft Skype for Business Online—to help users be productive from virtually anywhere through the Internet.
