Benefits of Office 365 for the Irish Construction Industry

The construction sector is a very fast-paced industry where a lot of the employees work outside the standard office structure. This is where the Office 365 communications and collaboration functionality assists businesses with employees across multiple sites.

CloudAssist will be holding a Construction Sector briefing on January 28th 2015 to illustrate and highlight key benefits of how Office 365 can prove to be of great advantage to each company within the Irish Construction Sector. There will be an expo area set up on the day of the event to allow attendees to network with other technology partners such as Plantronics, DocuSign and Metalogix.Irish Construction Blog

Productivity
A lot can be said about the benefits offered by Microsoft Office 365 in terms of mobile working, ensuring that employees can connect and are able to be productive across multiple devices and in a variety of locations, onsite and on the go. Company owners and leaders are aware of the potential benefits of online productivity solutions and are increasingly taking the opportunity to re-organise their workforces. They want to see their people spending as much of the working day as possible conducting value-adding tasks, and Office365 is the weapon in their arsenal.

Collaboration
Aside from allowing employees to keep working on the move, Office 365 has a range of other associated benefits. It is not just the 'where' and 'when' that interests’ business leaders in terms of mobile working - firms are also looking at how they can boost collective performance using cloud-based solutions. In an increasingly competitive business environment, companies are using digital technology to break down geographical barriers and work together more effectively.

Communication
The advanced communication and collaboration tools offered by Office 365 create an array of opportunities for effective team working. Armed with mobile solutions and remote access to their documents and files, employees can not only work productively but themselves and also contribute to shared projects with colleagues and clients based in other locations. Alterations they make to a document or file are made available to other users in real-time. Office 365’s Lync (instant messaging and conferencing technology) allows instant communication. Employees can use Office 365 to keep in constant contact wherever they are, making it easier to work on projects and bring people together from different parts of the business.

Contracts
Another aspect of Office 365’s many functionalities worth noting is that CloudAssist has teamed up with DocuSign, the global standard for digital transaction management, and is set to revolutionise the way contracts are managed in the Construction Industry. Like Office 365, you can use DocuSign anywhere and at any time. It is now the quickest and safest way to sign contracts on the go, including facial recognition software and IP authentication to improve security.

Reduced Costs
That’s not all, to make matters even more appealing, Office 365 will prove to significantly lower IT overhead costs for most companies. CloudAssist have recently conducted a case study on the successful implementation of Microsoft Office 365 for King & Moffatt Group. Shortly after the switch to Office 365, Ciaran King sees that they have already reduced costs and will continue to do so.

The cost of replacing a new server, maintenance, call out charges which we would have had before will all be reduced”. – Ciarán King, King & Moffatt
