Businesses and professional offices understand the need for mobile access to information regardless of your location.
At Purplo, we focus on working closely with your owner or technology leader to determine the right access to the right software and data for individuals and teams within your business to keep them productive and happy while providing superior work/life balance. Modern business doesn’t happen from 9am to 5pm, but can instead be conducted anywhere that you have access to the Internet – even on your mobile phone. Our focus is on getting the computing power that you need with storage, email, calendaring, virtual computing and messaging applications without the extensive overhead associated with traditional on-premise installations.
Productivity on the Go
Purplo recommends two cloud-based productivity suites for most businesses: Microsoft Office 365 and Google for Work Apps. While slightly different in scope, both application suites provide word processing, data analysis, email, calendaring and storage solutions at a cost-effective monthly per-user price.
- G-Suite. When you need consistent communication across a variety of different platforms and do the majority of your work away from a desktop computer, then G-Suite Apps may be a good solution. While the Google offering doesn’t provide quite as many bells and whistles as the similar Microsoft service, it is great for Millennials and a younger workforce that’s highly collaborative with others in that genre. Google Hangouts make remote conversations a snap, and documents are quick and easy to share with others. You can even edit documents shared with you in Microsoft Office format and save them natively.
- Microsoft Office 365. If your workforce is highly comfortable with the current Microsoft Office suite or performs advanced analytics or fully utilizes their productivity suite, Office 365 may be a better option. Our Microsoft Office 365 partner status provides us with the best possible pricing and a deep knowledge of the platform and how it can be leveraged to drive strategic change within organizations.
- The familiar Office tools are all available on this cloud-based version, which even includes additional products such as Microsoft’s network storage OneDrive and business-class email from a hosted Microsoft Exchange server. Online conferencing is a newer addition, and the web-based version of all your favourite Office suite plus the ability to install on up to 5 machines plus tablets and mobile phones means you’ll always have the information that you need regardless of your physical location.
We can come alongside your leadership team to ensure that you’re getting the best options for your organization with a thorough analysis of your current business needs and requirements. Our consultative approach means we always listen first to fully understand your needs before we make system or platform recommendations.
