O365: A Quick Overview

The video above shows you a quick glimpse of what Office 365 can do. At NHD, our growing collaboration needs span from a team of leaders who are, for the most part, not in the same region. Office 365’s vast suite of products and services help teams and organizations collaborate using a powerful cloud-based platform.

Below are the first set of programs/services that NHD will be rolling out within a few weeks. Read the quick descriptions below each icon. For the most part, you can simply set up your Email and OneDrive (for files). Keep an eye out for future communications on how additional services will be implemented at NHD.
