After one year in the market, Office 365 is being adopted by businesses of all sizes and industries around the globe. New Zealand, a nation known for its small businesses and culture of volunteering, is no exception: "Office 365 is a hit 'downunder' where it's on track to be one of the fastest growing products in Microsoft's history," said Rachel Turney, Product Manager, Microsoft Office Division. "Whether small or large, local or global, educational, nonprofit, or entrepreneurial, there is an Office 365 right for everybody."
Office 365 is secure, anywhere access to email and calendars, Office Web Apps, instant messaging, conferencing, and file sharing. Below is a sampling of how businesses and organizations in New Zealand are using and benefiting from Office365 and the cloud. You can also learn more about Office 365 in New Zealand here.
