(NAPSI)—Big news for many of America’s businesses: An
easier way to manage your customer relationships and build your business has
arrived in a single online solution. Microsoft has introduced four new apps
in its Office 365 service that streamline marketing and customer
• Microsoft Listings: An easy way to publish your business
information on top sites such as Facebook, Google, Bing and Yelp. A web
dashboard lets you easily monitor ratings and reviews, and when you update
your business profile, the changes automatically populate across those top
• Microsoft Bookings: A quick and easy alternative to scheduling
appointments by phone. A customizable public webpage lets your customers find
available times and book appointments 24/7. You get a private calendar for
managing your schedule, with automatic confirmations and reminders.
• Microsoft Connections: A simple-to-use email marketing service
that makes it easy to connect with your most loyal customers and find new
ones. It lets you create professional-looking email marketing campaigns with
pre-designed templates for newsletters, announcements or customer referrals
and provides simple ways for people to join your mailing list.
• Microsoft Invoicing: A new way to create professional invoices and
get paid fast. It works with PayPal, so you can accept credit and debit cards
online while a connector to QuickBooks lets you sync customer and catalog
data and transfer invoicing information to your accountant.
To manage it all, there’s the Office 365 Business center, a central
place to view the health of your business by tracking key business metrics
like total outstanding invoices, email subscribers, social engagement, total
appointments booked and so on. Because the new business apps are built to
work together, a contact in one is automatically recognized in another, so
you don’t have to input data multiple times. You have full control over
who inside your business gets access to which apps and related information.
The apps are available now as part of an Office 365 Business Premium
subscription and can be accessed on the web, along with companion mobile apps
for Connections and Invoicing on iOS and Android.
