Office 2010 will reach end-of-life support on October 13, 2020, which means that Microsoft will discontinue all support, including all updates and paid support. In order to safeguard your data and increase your productivity, now may be the time to switch to Office 365.

What is Microsoft Office 365?

Microsoft Office 365 is a subscription cloud service that provides users with the basic productivity applications necessary to get work done. The productivity applications include Word, Excel, Outlook, Calendar and PowerPoint. Additional platforms include OneDrive, SharePoint and Teams. These powerful, flexible and secure tools offer collaboration, communication and efficiency through idea exchange.


What are the advantages of Microsoft Office 365?

You can store all your information safely in the cloud and you can use the software suite across multiple devices. Additionally, with built-in security and compliance, Office 365 gives you more control with privacy and transparency, so meeting compliance regulations is even easier.

How can you prepare for the transition to Office 365?

First, you should formulate a plan, organize your data, then migrate, but don’t wait. October 13, 2020 will be here before you know it. Furthermore, you’ll want to practice getting used to Office 365, as it may take time to familiarize yourself with shortcut keys, new features, and other tools.

Office 365 is your complete source for productivity and collaboration. With integrated solutions built for small business, your staff can get more done and work better together, while protecting your data and meeting compliance regulations.
