New business apps in Office 365 Business Premium
Microsoft has announced three new applications coming to Office 365 Business Premium later this year:
- Microsoft Connections – A simple-to-use email marketing service.
- Microsoft Listing – An easy way to publish your business information on top sites.
- Microsoft Invoicing – A new way to create professional invoices and get paid fast.
In addition, MileIQ, Microsoft’s existing mileage-tracking app, is also being made available to Office 365 Business Premium users.
Connections, Listings, Invoicing and the Business center are rolling out in preview over the next few weeks to UK Office 365 Business Premium subscribers, starting with those in the First Release program. MileIQ Premium is available to all UK Business Premium subscribers today.
Manage from one place with the new Office 365 Business center
The Office 365 Business center brings Bookings, Connections, Listings and Invoicing together in a central location—so you have easy access to your business apps and data. It features a unified dashboard where you can view key metrics from all the business apps, including total outstanding invoices, the number of appointments scheduled, the impressions across Facebook, Google, Bing and Yelp, and the number of new subscribers and sent campaigns.
The Business center includes an activity feed, so you can see the details of what’s happening within each of the apps—making it easy to keep up-to-date on new customer appointments, invoices and payments being created or updated by the employees in your business. The activity feed also provides suggestions on what actions to take next, such as alerting you that a payment is overdue and it’s time to resend an invoice.
These new apps and features add yet more functionality to Office 365, reinforcing its position as an essential tool for businesses.
