Productivity suites are universally one of the best tools for getting work done in the business world, so if you’re not familiar with the term, then take a moment to consider how often you use Microsoft Office products or the Google Workspace apps. These are productivity suites, and they are remarkably important and valuable for your company, whether you realize it or not.
A productivity suite gives you a collection of tools for getting work done, quickly and effectively, in a variety of modalities. You can expect the following benefits from using a productivity suite for your business.
When people have access to the tools and resources they need to do their jobs, they can work more effectively, and more effectively together too. Productivity suites have collaboration tools built right into them, particularly for cloud-based applications that can enable multiple users to edit documents, spreadsheets, or slideshows in real-time. Sometimes productivity suites will also have other collaboration tools built right into them, like video or voice chat.
It doesn’t matter if it’s on a desktop, laptop, or mobile device. Productivity suites are generally quite accessible in some format or another, although features might vary depending on the version you are using. They are great for remote or in-house workers, and they can be accessed from anywhere using a web browser. Depending on the solution, you might not even need to install the apps—they are that convenient and dynamic these days.
Of course, there are financial benefits to going with productivity suites as well. When you subscribe to one of the aforementioned services, you get access to the whole range of apps in the suite, so instead of installing multiple instances of each app on each of your devices, you are instead setting up accounts for employees who can then use the apps as they see fit. It’s better than purchasing licenses per user, and it’s more convenient when it comes time to upgrade to new versions of the software. It makes maintenance and patch management much easier, too.
