Point of View

Unbox Microsoft Cloud


April: the month synonymous with spring cleaning, growth and new beginnings. At Point Alliance, we believe it is important to never stop growing. As the world of technology around us constantly upgrades and improves, it is vital that your business evolves right along with it. This month, our newsletter is taking you on a tour of the benefits of the Microsoft Cloud and the ways in which it can transform how you do business.

Let's talk about the Cloud

Many organizations are either getting ready to begin their cloud journeys, or they’re increasing their cloud investment. Microsoft 365 and Office 365 can meet customers’ needs through Microsoft’s highly secure, cloud-based productivity platform, where customers have the flexibility to have some–or all–data in the cloud.

At Point Alliance, we excel at helping companies handle the important, routine IT tasks involved with running a business so that you can focus on the fun stuff.  We offer a wide range of services including Office365 set-up and migration services as well as assistance with adopting a business-class email solution. Business-class email works harder for you—keeping you organized no matter the size of your inbox, connected no matter where you are, and secure from external threats. Through our experience as a Gold Certified Microsoft partner, we can help you choose the right solution, tailor it to fit your unique needs, and drive adoption among your employees, all while staying within your budget.
