The Collection of Productivity Tools and Software Collaboration aims to simplify IT for small to medium sized businesses with up to 300 employees. Security tools help protect business information on Windows 10 computers, mobile devices, and applications.

Parallel to the launch of the new version of Microsoft 365 Business, three new applications designed to help small businesses grow and prosper have been implemented: Microsoft Connections, Microsoft Listings and Microsoft Invoicing.

Microsoft Connections allows small businesses to send high quality and professional quality emails, aimed at maximizing the attractiveness of a brand and promoting sales.

Microsoft Listings is designed to foster small business growth by getting new customers and helping them strengthen their presence by placing the company on Google, Facebook, Yelp and Bing.

Microsoft Invoicing provides small businesses with estimating and billing tools to speed up payments and manage cash flow more competently.

Together, Microsoft 365 Business and these three applications provide a comprehensive toolbox to help small business owners run their businesses more efficiently and grow their operations.

In a Microsoft Office blog, Kirk Koenigsbauer, vice president of the office team, spoke of the benefits Microsoft 365 Business will bring to small businesses, noting:

"Microsoft 356 Business helps businesses achieve more together by improving the connection between employees, customers, and suppliers."

As many small businesses are not able to have internal IT support, Microsoft 365 Business provides small businesses with an all-in-one solution that does not require any internal computer backup.
