  • Upload and work with your files from anywhere and form any device with a consistent web interface, even with PHI.
  • Connect to OneDrive and work completely in the cloud - no more local copies of files floating around.
  • Message your colleagues from within Cloud Collaboration Tools via Teams chat and share files to view and edit in real-time.
  • Collaborate with teammates, partners, and customers with documents that are always up to date and accessible from almost anywhere.
  • SharePoint Online makes it easy to set up and manage online communities, wikis and blogs, make customized forms and create and manage content and documents.

  • Work collaboratively with your team, including simultaneous editing of documents in Word, Excel and PowerPoint, without desktop applications.
  • Share links, not files – you will always know where the latest version is, who has seen it and when it was edited.
  • Work from virtually anywhere using trusted Office applications across your favorite devices--PCs, Macs, and mobile devices--and seamlessly move and work with your Office documents locally on your device or in the online environment.
  • Microsoft Teams serves your communication needs, making it easy to see when someone is available, connect via instant message, audio or video calls and host online meetings.
