Make it simpler for small businesses to use the same level of technology that large firms do
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) July 27, 2011
Three weeks after the release of Office 365, IT services firm CyberStreams Inc. is already a year deep in spending on the product. The motivation is simple: with Microsoft gearing up to throw billions towards reshaping technology use by small businesses, why not be ready for the shift?
These investments all flow into a new business division specializing in Office 365 deployments. The new business unit streamlines the process involved in upgrading a firm’s operations cloud based services. Backed with the expertise of an IT consulting firm still thriving since the 90s, it is CyberStreams’ goal to have this new arm reach more members of the local Seattle business community.
With many months of beta use and several migrations to Office 365 already completed, it is clear that the message of the new Office 365 consulting arm has resonated well with local business owners: “Make it simpler for small businesses to use the same level of technology that large firms do.” One major component of this goal is to eliminate the headache that comes with owning and maintaining a server as a small business owner.
The company has branded the idea of removing headaches into its slogan. Telling business owners to instead focus on what they do best: “Run Your Business, Not Your Network”. Such a statement clearly implies a more comprehensive process than is met by typical IT support expectations. The company will provide services as broad as project planning and migration consulting; to specific topics including SharePoint development and Unified Communications through Outlook.
Microsoft’s Office 365 was released last June 28th. The cloud computing package includes a variety of business productivity products. Exchange Online is a natural extension of the popular Exchange 2010 product used nationwide, and is now available in the cloud. SharePoint Online provides small businesses a variety of collaboration and sharing tools that used to require prohibitively expensive licensing to run on-site. Lync Online is a powerful new communication tool that allows remote workers to easily stay connected and hold remote meetings. Lastly, Office 365 provides a new affordable monthly method for owning the popular desktop Office products such as Word and Outlook.
CyberStreams Inc. is the parent company of Office 365 Advisors and has been providing reliable technology support to the greater Seattle area since 1997. In addition to being a Microsoft Certified Partner who provides IT Consulting services, CyberStreams also offers expert guidance on business phone systems.
