The Microsoft 365 rollout is another step in Information Technology's global strategy to implement the latest tools to create a seamless, student-focused experience in accordance with Gannon University's strategic plan.

Benefits of Microsoft 365

Cool New Features

​​​​​​Boost Productivity

Microsoft 365 is not just about getting things done faster. It is about reinventing how you get them done. In a world of flexible, mobile workstyles, Microsoft 365 sets the stage for productivity by enabling employees to gain access to familiar Office applications and tools on a range of mobile devices and smartphones from wherever they are. Whether you perform tasks during a coffee catch-up with a colleague, while commuting to work, or jumping on a conference call with a client – with Microsoft 365, work becomes something you do at the point of need and not confined to your location.

Cloud Storage - Working anywhere from any device

Being based in the cloud, Microsoft 365 means you no longer need to be chained to the desk to access company data and be productive. It’s possible to work from mobiles, tablets, and laptops on the go - and it’s all backed up by comprehensive security measures. Cross-platform support allows users to access their documents from PCs, Macs, iOS, and Android devices.

Reduce Gannon's IT Costs and Overhead

Moving to Microsoft 365 allows us to leverage licensing we already have and to consolidate our hardware resources thus providing the opportunity to support other University initiatives.
