Learn how BlumShapiro Consulting used Office 365 to help a non-profit keep their remote workforce connected.

BlumPOWER Business Productivity

Worry Free IT

E-mail, document production and storage, collaboration and communication tools are business essentials today.  Some would argue they are as critical as monthly utilities like electricity and plumbing. You can now have the latest, most up-to-date productivity tools managed for your business in predictable monthly billing cycles. This is what we call BlumPOWER™ Business Productivity or “worry free IT.”

Power Your Business with BlumPOWER™ Business Productivity

For less than the cost of the average monthly cell phone plan, BlumPOWER™ Business Productivity includes the world’s most powerful software suite, accessible anytime, anywhere and on any device. Office 365 is Microsoft’s cloud based platform for the modern office, allowing access to email, instant messaging, document creation and collaboration. Teams can gather on SharePoint sites and work together in documents using the familiar Microsoft interface, including Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint and a whole host of other Microsoft services.

If you’re a smaller organization, BlumPOWER™ Business Productivity may be all that you need to keep your staff up and running with the latest in the world’s most popular software suite.

Outsourcing the basic information worker services to BlumShapiro and Microsoft’s Office 365 gives any organization the power to do more with less.

IT departments that spend their time managing email accounts and document workspaces aren’t providing their full value to the organization.

Reducing Costs and Boosting Productivity

BlumPOWER™ Business Productivity does not require an upfront investment in servers or new hardware. BlumShapiro will work with you to define the licenses that you need for your team, migrate the data, install best practices in change management and security, ongoing maintenance and offer 24/7/365 technical support including virtual CIO services and tips and tricks.

Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook and Skype are just the core offering of Office 365. Microsoft continues to add value to all of their licensing plans and BlumShapiro is here to help you deploy, migrate and maintain these cloud services to enable your organization to free your IT staff and infrastructure to empower growth in your organization.

BlumShapiro Consulting is dedicated to Microsoft technologies and has earned five partner competencies. Our staff will manage migrations, deploy new services and, most importantly, train and support your organization to ensure you get the most out of this investment. BlumPOWER™ is designed to support and grow with organizations of all sizes.

It is our mission to help organizations spend more time focused on their individual missions and less time struggling with technology designed to enable goals. Our objective is “worry free IT.”
