Office 365 configuration and development services
What is Office 365?
Office 365 is a part of the general Microsoft Office suite and provides a comprehensive platform for getting your team to work more effectively and collaboratively.
With Office 365 for the enterprise, you get the essential latest Office applications, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook as well as all the infrastructure to run your business like Exchange, Active Directory, Skype for Business Server and SharePoint Online.
While the Office suite contains powerful tools on its own, there is often a missing link between using Office 365 and using Office 365 in the context of GMP and other regulated environments.
With our experience in GMP, Quality systems and Computer systems validation, we can help you get the most out the Office Suite in light of your oganisational and process requirements.
